BHEL to expand Jhansi plant to manufacture locomotives

Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited will expand capacity at its Jhansi plant to manufacture 100 locomotive units for railways by next year, up from the present output of 75 and 50 last year, according to its Chairman & Managing Director B. Prasada Rao.

As for the metro segment, for which BHEL has tied up with Hitachi to offer solution to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, new manufacturing facilities will be created in Bangalore for control components, Bhopal for traction motors and Jhansi for locos.

Exuding hope that 25 to 30 cities in the country will have metro rail in the near future, he said BHEL was positioning itself to cater to the market. The capacities at the new plants will be in tune with the market (demand), he told journalists here.
