“The partnership between BF Infrastructure Ltd. and Talgo India Pvt Ltd. would significantly contribute to the Government of India’s initiative of Atmanirbhar Bharat” stated by company statement.
The joint venture would also take advantage of growing domestic requirements in the field and will also address large business opportunities in the Indian Railways sector.
The joint venture will concentrate on supplying the Indian Railways and other private operators who will work under the overarching self-reliant vision with state-of-the-art, high-speed rail technology and solutions.
The JV will also concentrate on establishing a hub for manufacturing, maintenance, and life cycle support for new generation, energy efficient lightweight aluminium, high speed rails.
The partnership between BF Infrastructure and Talgo should be noted in light of the Indian Railway’s recent tender for the manufacturing and maintenance of 100 new generation, light weight, energy-efficient trains.
