Kiel (Germany), Oct. 18 (PTI): Voith Turbo — a unit of German engineering giant Voith AG — is negotiating with Tata Motors a deal to set up a locomotive diesel manufacturing unit in India.

“If everything goes according to schedule, we might start working on the plant by 2011,” Hinrich Krey, managing director of Voith Turbo Lokomotivetechnik, said.

“The proposed plant would also cater to the need of the railways, besides supplying engines to the German parent company,” he said.

Meanwhile, the South Korean government has ordered Tata Daewoo Commercial Vehicle — Tata Motors’ joint venture in the country — to recall 3,276 trucks because of technical glitches in the steering system in its three models, officials said.
