PM Modi flags off Indian Railways' first high speed electric locomotive in Bihar
 
(New Delhi, Apr 10, 2018):Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off Indian Railways' first high-speed electric locomotive developed at the Electric Locomotive Factory, a collaboration between India and France, in Madhepura. The 12,000 horsepower high-speed train is the first Make-in-India project of this magnitude completed along with French rolling stock giant Alstom.

With this India will join the countries like Russia, China, Germany and Sweden, which have 12,000 horsepower and above electric locomotives. The most powerful electric engine in the Indian Railways was of 6,000 horsepower.

The Indian Railways had signed an Rs 20,000-crore agreement with Alstom for 800 high-speed locomotives in 2015. Under the contract over a period of 11 years, first five engines will be imported from France, while the rest 795 will be produced here in India.
