China Civil Engineering Group, which is constructing new standard-gauge lines in Nigeria, awarded CRRC Qishuyan a contract in January 2019 for four NDJ3N locomotives, six DF11GN passenger locomotives, nine DF8BN freight locomotives and two DF7GN shunting locomotives.
The order is CRRC Qishuyan’s largest export of locomotives, and marked the company’s entrance into the West African railway market.
The first batch of 10 locomotives was shipped to Nigeria in October 2019, arriving in Lagos Port on January 31.
The latest delivery includes the DF8BN and DF7GN models.
To ensure the locomotives could be delivered on time, CRRC Qishuyan implemented special procedures to allow work to continue during the coronavirus pandemic, including staggered work hours and split teams.
