Refurbishment

New locomotive manufacture forms only part of the services provided by the company. 
 
HEC has the capabilities of constructing, modernising, overhauling or fully refurbishing many types of locomotive. Our extensive experience in carrying out such refurbishment work to very high standards and at competitive costs is attributed to our in-house ‘purpose built’ diesel engine and power train transmission facilities which allow total overhauls to be undertaken under strict quality control conditions. 
 
Using modern equipment installed by skilled technicians, retrofit programmes purposely designed to extend the serviceable life of components are offered to our customers, whereby, substantial savings to the user can be made when compared with new build costs. Alternatively, locomotives can be completely refurbished and supplied with new technology ecologically-friendly diesel power units, power-shift transmissions and braking systems controlled via PLC systems for ease of maintenance, reliability and repeatability of functional controls.
