The company’s subsidiary GE South African Technologies will supply the C30ACi model, which will feature a 3,300GHP engine and an electronic fuel injection system to automatically supply the exact amount of fuel needed for optimal engine efficiency.

The delivery of the locomotives is scheduled to begin in early 2011.
