The delegation also visited various workshops, including New Block Shop, Engine Test Shop, Loco Assembly Shop, and inspected the engine production process and available manufacturing facilities.
Cape Gauge diesel locomotives exported to Mozambique are made in India and financed by India. This is BLW’s first AC-AC 3000 HP traction system, Cape Gauge Loco.
