Jul 31 (18:00) Condemn 2,500 Diesels ASAP, Make Indian 10-12k hp Electric Locos by 2022: Ministry tells Railway Board (www.railpost.in)

Plans of conversion of diesel locos to electric dropped. Excess units to be condemned, sold or exported.

The Ministry of Railways has asked the Railway Board to quickly downsize Indian Railways’ fleet of diesel locomotives. 2,500 diesel units are likely to face the chopping block soon, sources told RailPost.in

Minister

of Railways Piyush Goyal wants 100% electrification for the public transport behemoth in the next few years.

As of 1st July 2020, Indian Railways operates two shy of 5,500 diesel locos. They are maintained by 42 sheds spread across the country. Holdings of several sheds will be more than halved as a result.

The Ministry wants this freed up infra to be utilized for maintenance of the rapidly expanding fleet of electric locos. IR has a fleet of more than 7,000 electric locos as of 1st July 2020.

18 diesel locomotive sheds have already made suitable modifications and home approx 800 electric units.

725 electric locos were planned for production this year. The number is likely to decline substantially due to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown and low rail traffic levels at present.

Make high-power, high-speed electric locos in India by 2022, officials told

The ministry has asked Board officials to adopt the latest technology and produce 9-12,000 horsepower electric locos meant for 120 km/h freight and 200 km/h capable passenger services.

Target for a prototype has been set for June 2022.

Plans for conversion of diesel locos to electric dropped

IR has also dropped much-hyped plans for the conversion of redundant diesel locomotives to electric, according to officials. The cost of conversion reportedly made the exercise infeasible.

Research Development and Standards Organization (RDSO) and Diesel Locomotive Works (DLW) had taken up the project to convert two ALCo based units and several EMD units to electric. All converted prototypes are now based at Bondamunda shed of South Eastern Railway.

Diesels: Sell, Export, Scrap… or Gift?

With the decision to get rid of as many diesel locos as possible, Indian Railways faces tough choices.

A large part of Indian Railways’ diesel fleet has not worked for half of its codal life yet. Units that are due for heavy maintenance are likely to be condemned. The government-owned transporter is likely to take a financial hit on premature condemning of so many locos.

Savings in fuel and maintenance bills have been cited by officials as likely to make up for some of the loss in the long term.

There is a limited market for high power diesel locomotives, especially ones built for broad gauge. Local industrial demand for such powerful locomotives is almost non-existent. RITES has been asked to work with DLW and the Railway Board to find ways to dispose of the surplus units, said an official conversant with the matter.

IR recently gifted Bangladesh Railways 10 ALCo based diesel units as part of a larger agreement on improving railway connectivity between India and Bangladesh.

The GE/Wabtec Conundrum

This still leaves the Railway Ministry stuck with the question of what to do with diesel locos that continue to be manufactured at a plant in Marhowra, Bihar.

Indian Railways awarded a contract in 2015 to then General Electric, which later sold its transportation division to Wabtec, to produce 1,000 units of 4,500 and 6,000 horsepower diesel locos. Over 700 units are to be delivered over the next few years.

Unless Indian Railways finds a way out of the contract, or is able to resell the remainder of the fleet to other railway networks, the fate of most diesel locomotives in India looks bleak.

Some of the drawbacks of above plan:
1) Condemnation of 5000 D-locos is a costly affair loss of about 50000 crores (50% cost of D-locos)
2) Procurement/ manufacture of 10-12K E locos in 2.5 yrs is a very difficult (almost impossible) task
3) Procurement cost of these many e locos need astronomical 1.5-1.8 lac crore Rs. in next 2.5 years
4)
...
more...
Non availability of E locos shall result in usage of D-locos in newly electrified tracks which is highly undesirable,
-
Rather than going for rapid electrification at break neck speed (planned @10000-12000 km/yr) to achieve 100% electrification in next 3 years, it would be better to at a reasonable pace of 3000kms per year. Spared funds should be utilized for construction of DFCs & doubling/tripling of highly congested money spinner routes of IR.

Point 2) "Procurement/ manufacture of 10-12K E locos in 2.5 yrs is a very difficult (almost impossible) task"

10-12k is not quantity but 10-12k HP (horsepower).

The lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic had resulted in the entire Indian film industry to be shut down for all production work and the Kannada film industry was affected too. Now, the government of Karnataka has given permission to start film shootings but while following certain restrictions. Earlier, the government had given permission for serial, ad and documentary shootings. And the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce with members had requested the government to allow for film shooting as well. Now, the Health Department and Department of Information Technology have issued guidelines and released the order for allowing film shootings on Monday. Now, many big-budget movies like ‘Yuvarathnaa’, ‘Roberrt’, ‘Kabza’ and others which had been suspended because of the lockdown will start shooting soon by following guidelines. The government has pointed out 18 guidelines to start shooting and allowed only 50 members on the set of shootings at a time, which...

will be relaxed in future. "I am expecting to restart ‘Kabza’, I will keep 10 days as a buffering period and start shooting. Government has advised us to use a sanitizer, PPE kit, wear a mask and maintain distance during the shooting. We will also be taking more precautions because there will be many people in a film shooting compared to that of a serial. We are planning to sanitise the set three times a day, and be more careful when we are shooting indoors,” said 'Kabza' director R.Chandru in an earlier interview. The government has also ordered the maintenance of health records of the people who will be on the set, and the production house should take complete responsibility of crew members if they test positive. The guidelines also ask to maintain social distance, wearing a mask, avoiding handshakes and thermal screening among other things.

Once work of electrification in the sidings of private parties like Jindal, Hottur Ispat, ACC Sidings, FCI Sidings, BMB Siding and Ballari Thermal, Ballari TSS will be able to supply power for another 140 Kms ensuring quicker movement of rakes and improving mobility. With this Traction substation mobility of train services on the section will improve as Electrification will significantly improve mobility trains on SWR and strengthen Rail network in Karnataka. In addition to reduction in pollution efficiency of Railway will improve due to shift from fossil fuel to electricity.
