1.2Highlights and other achievements

1.2.1Maintenance of Electric locos in Diesel Shed

25 diesel locomotives have been condemned in 2019-20 and 2021-22 and a total of 38 WAG7 electric locos have been transferred to Diesel shed Jhansi holding.

 Initially 25 locos were transferred from Sept’20- Nov’20 from Electric loco shed Jhansi to Diesel Shed Jhansi and minor schedules of these locos have been started from September’20.

03 more locos have been transferred in March’21 and 10 more locos have been transferred on 29.06.21. Now electric loco holding is 38 locos.

Till date 90 minor schedules and 03 major schedules (TOH) have been carried out in Diesel loco shed Jhansi.

1.2.2Fuel Oil Saving in APU fitted locomotives

APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) is a self-contained system with its own small diesel engine coupled to low capacity compressor and alternator. The function of APU is to - maintain main reservoir pressure, charge battery, operate driver cabin HVAC system and other small loads when loco is in idling condition in yards etc. The main engine is started only when the locomotive is actually required for movement or traction. With APU there is a considerable direct saving of HSD oil and indirect saving through avoidance of wear and tear of main engine during unnecessary idling.

The saving of HSD oil through locos fitted with APU in 2020-21 from April’20 to March’21 has been 99.66 KL (Cost Rs. 66.55 Lakhs) AND FROM April’21 to June’21 has been 24.84 KL (Cost Rs.16.64 Lakhs).
