Locomotive Transition to Gas Advances, Aligning with Presidential CNG Initiative


The transition of the Nation’s locomotives from diesel to gas has advanced significantly, aligning with the President’s commitment to implementing the administration’s agenda of switching to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).

Minister of Transportation, Senator Sa’id Alkali, during an inspection tour at Idu Railway Station, Abuja, said the engine will work on 30 percent of diesel and 70 percent on gas.

The Minister who said the test run would commence soon, added that the target is to reduce the cost of maintenance to about sixty to seventy percent as well as maintain a clean environment against carbon emissions.

The CNG when completed, will be the first of its kind in the whole of the African continent.
