Third and last GE locomotive on transport to Tata

On Thursday 28 February, the third and final GE locomotive was transported to Tata Steel IJmuiden.
It involved an impressive transport of no less than 36 meters, with a 95 ton locomotive.

Just like the previous two, this locomotive has also been restored and modernized in collaboration with Tata Steel.
The locomotive is equipped with new clean and quieter diesel engines, which meet the most recent climate requirements of the EU.

Update GE loco Tata Steel

Meanwhile, the upgrade of the 1st GE loco for Tata Steel is progressing steadily. The frame is upright again and the bogies, fuel and air tanks are already underneath. The specific SA3 shunting couplings have also been installed. All 6 DGU’s (diesel generator units) are in a row and the wait is still on the revised generators, the first two DGU’s are now assembled first.

1st frame Tata GE loco has arrived

Recently we reported the news that Bemo has signed the contract for upgrading 3 GE locos for Tata Steel.

The first locomotives were dismantled at Tata and the first frame was prepared by Tata and shipped to Bemo. And at Bemo we started the preparation and implementation of the piping underneath the base frame. The detailed design is in full swing and production for DGUs (diesel generator units) and cab is already advanced. Also, the main components (such as diesel engines and generators) have been ordered.

Among other things, for moving the loco frames, and later the complete loco’s, 2 sets of 50t overhead cranes have been purchased and now installed so that the loco’s can easily be moved within our factory.
