Diesel Loco Shed Visakhapatnam gets 4th ISO certification

It should be noted that the knack for professional excellence and quality management is something that keeps on augmenting with constant determination. And this determination is egged on due to a global accreditation, which is known as ISO certification.

An ISO certification not only gives head start to the level of quality efficiency and customer satisfaction but also takes that momentum to a further level at every successive stage. The illustrious Diesel Loco Shed of Visakhapatnam is a live example of this truth. The 53-year-old railway locomotive shed has added another string to its bow by bagging 4th ISO certification.


Already acquiring the ISO 9001 2015 certification, ISO 14001:2015, OHSAS 18001:2017, the Diesel Loco Shed of Visakhapatnam has now become a live inspiration to many organisations by attaining ISO 50001 certification for efficient energy management.


#1. What has made this locomotive-shed worthy of such accolade?

Indeed, the entire management panel has laid much emphasis on smart and sustainable energy use. Numerous measures have been introduced in a very short span. These include replacement of CFLs, tube lights and metal halides with smart LED fittings. Notably, these measures have helped the organization save 2% power as compared to the previous year.


#2. What are those smart energy consumption solutions employed here?

The locomotive shed is perfectly equipped with energy efficient green power solutions. It has installed a 300 kWp solar power panel that meets 50% of its average power load, during the peak hours.


#3. What happens if excess power is generated?

Besides green power generation, there is another remarkable aspect that has made it worthy of this ISO certification. The shed is capable of 25% feedback of its total generated power to the power grid during off-peak hours and holidays.


#4. What is the secret behind the constant upgrading of power efficiency at DLS?

There is no doubt that it has been continually maintaining the knack for energy efficiency. This can be justified from the fact that it has been regularly conducting trials of technology upgrading trials by RDSO, the research and development wing under the Railways Ministry, which itself holds ISO 9001 certification and functions as a technical consultant to the Railway Board.


These are a few aspects that have helped attain a series of ISO certification.
