We already know that GE is busy making locomotives and the plant in Bihar for dedicated freight corridor, Now ----------
French Alstom to set up Rs 20k-cr Bihar unit to make 800 high-power locomotives
click here
"The factory is under construction and phase one is expected to be ready by September of the current year. We should be rolling out the first locomotive from
the plant by early next year," he said. The first train will be put through a rigorous test for thousands of kilometres and the second and third locomotives will also be prototypes, which will undergo a lot of tests. The facility is being set up under a joint-venture between Alstom and Indian Railway.
"Starting from locomotive number four, they will be inducted into operations. We will be manufacturing about 100 locomotives a year at the peak of manufacturing. We will start with one locomotive in the first year, four in the second and, from the fifth year onward, we will be making 100 locomotives," he elaborated. The locomotives have 12,000 horsepower, the highest in the country.
The first locomotive will be more of an assembly and the factory will continue to grow and expand till it can produce a hundred of them. The last year of completion of the manufacturing contract is 2035-36, but the company will continue with service maintenance for several years. The Madhepura project is worth Rs 20,000 crore and the foreign direct investment component in the project is about Rs 1,200 crore.

And what is super interesting is that these ones are 12000hp rated, unlike GE which are 4500 and 6000 hp rated. These will be most powerful locomotives in the country.
