Abstract

This project produced detailed preliminary designs for a train repair workshop for TransNamib, the national rail company of Namibia, to be located at Usakos. We planned a more efficient layout of the infrastructure and facilities to improve upon the existing workshop in Windhoek. We developed an organogram and a machine inventory to estimate the cost of the new workshop, which will bring 133 jobs to Usakos and allow TransNamib to maintain all its fleet with great benefits for the Namibian economy.
