Naveen Patnaik wrote to Union Railway Minister urging him to establish integrated coach factory

Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today wrote to Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal urging him to establish integrated coach factory for aluminium bodied train sets in Odisha.

In his letter Naveen stated, “I am writing this in context of production of high speed aluminium bodied ‘Train 20’ train sets to be rolled out by the Ministry of Railways by 2020. The State Government is extremely keen to set up the Integrated Coach Factory for these train sets in the state.”

“As you are aware, Odisha is the largest producer of aluminium and houses about 56% of the smelting capacity of the country. The State Government is developing a dedicated Aluminium Park, where molten aluminium can be directly obtained from the smelter of NALCO for manufacturing of the train sets. In view of this unique advantage in the state, the production costs for the coaches could come down substantially through use of committed feedstock from the mother plant in the immediate vicinity”, Naveen wrote.
