Download Case Study PDF

About the Project

Holcim (Lanka) Ltd. operates Sri Lanka’s sole integrated cement manufacturing plant located in Palavi, Puttalam with a dedicated railway line. This line is utilized by their own locomotives each with over 25 carriages to transport limestone from the designated quarry to the plant covering a    distance of approximately 41 kilometers. To ensure optimal efficiency of the locomotive, the DIMO TMS Team undertook the overhaul of the ALCO 812 KW 23 tonne six cylinder engine. This was carried out in the state-of-the-art DIMO Workshop Complex located in Siyambalape. The project was completed in 28 days with several test trials carried out via loading and unloading carriages to test the engine’s performance improvement which was evident from the results.
