India will supply 18 metre-gauge 1350 HP Diesel Electric Locomotives to Myanmar to help the country bolster its railway transportation system. In this regard, RITES (Public Sector Enterprise under Union Ministry of Railways) has signed a contract with Myanmar Railways. The supply contract is a vital project being funded under an existing line of credit (LOC) extended by India to Myanmar. These locomotives will be manufactured by Varanasi based Diesel Locomotive Works. They will have several modern features like, fuel-efficient engine, microprocessor controls and ergonomic cab design. This supply will help Myanmar to meet increasing demand for passenger and freight traffic. RITES is also planning to augment its export of rolling stock manufactured at Railway Production Units especially in South East Asian markets. Source: The Hindu
