GUWAHATI, Feb 24 - As part of the green energy initiative by the Indian Railways, the first bio-diesel fuelling point was inaugurated in the Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) at the Diesel Loco Shed, New Guwahati, here today.

The bio-diesel storage and fuelling facility has been provided by the Indian Oil Corporation Limited, Guwahati Divisional Office, said NFR PRO Nripen Bhattacharya.

During the inauguration programme, fuelling of bio-diesel was carried out in a shunting locomotive and successful test run was completed.

The event was attended by E Tigga, Chief Mechanical Engineer (O&F) of NFR, Partha Datta, Deputy General Manager (CS) of Indian Oil-Assam Oil Division State Office, Guwahati and other senior officials.

It is to be noted that the bio-diesel fuelling point at New Guwahati is only the third one in India after Itarsi and Tughlaqabad.

Besides being environment friendly and pollution free, bio-diesel is also more cost effective as it will cost the railways only Rs 47.50 per litre as against 51.50 per litre in case of the normal diesel, Bhattacharya said.
