GE Electric Transportation has reportedly been selected by state-owned train company Kereta Api Indonesia (PT KAI) to supply 50 additional class CC206 diesel locomotives.

Indonesian Railways is expected to operate these locomotives on passenger and freight services on the 1,067mm-gauge networks in Java and Sumatra.

The order for GE model CM20-EMP, 1.67MW six-axle locomotives, comes under the PT KAI’s 2014 procurement programme and the order is being placed at a unit cost of up to $3m.

"GE has supported Indonesian Railways since 1953 and there are currently more than 320 GE locomotives in service in the country."

KAI spokesperson Makmur Syaheran was quoted by en.tempo.co as saying that the first batch of 15 locomotives is due to be delivered on 30 September 2015 and another 15 units are expected to reach in October. The remaining units will be delivered in September 2016 and those will be used in Sumatra.

GE has delivered 100 CC206s to PT KAI since 2012 and they were assembled at GE’s Erie plant in the US, while the bogies were constructed in Indonesia by PT Barata.

GE has supported Indonesian Railways since 1953 and there are currently more than 320 GE locomotives in service in the country, which serve 200 million people a year.
