Over the next 11 years, Siemens will deliver 1,200 electric locomotives to Indian Railways. The new locomotives are part of Indian Railways commitment to achieve 100 percent electrification of rail traffic in India. With a network of 68,000 kilometers, Indian Railways are one of the largest in the world, and India plans to become the world's largest green railway by 2030.
In addition to delivering the electric locomotives, Siemens will also provide 35 years of maintenance. The locomotives will be produced and maintained locally, involving Indian Railways personnel.
