France-based rolling stock manufacturer Alstom will deliver 10 high-powered electric locomotives in FY20 through its Madhepura Electric Locomotive (MELPL), its joint venture (JV) with the Indian Railways.

The delivery schedule is part of a comprehensive ‘recovery plan’ drawn up following a delay in supply of these locomotives under initial agreement. Alstom had in 2015 bagged Rs 20,000 crore order for supplying 800 high-powered electric locomotives to the Indian Railways.

As part of the contract, after rolling out the first prototype, the company was to supply four more locomotives assembled at its Madhepura facility in Bihar in FY19, 35 locomotives in FY20, another 60 in FY21, and 100 every year, after that till completion of the order, with delivery spread over a period of 11 years.

Alstom holds 74 percent equity share and the Indian Railways holds an equity share of 26 percent. Based on the previous test results, Alstom has redesigned the complete locomotive, including the bogies, which will undergo oscillation tests and trials in November 2019.

After test and trials, Alstom will accelerate the delivery schedule and supply 10 locomotives in FY20, and 90 locomotives in FY21 and 100 locomotives per year beyond March 2021 as per their recovery plan.

As per the recovery plan, the delivery schedule will be back on track by the end of FY21. The Indian Railways is planning to go fully electric by 2021-22.
