New Technologies Strengthen China’s Rail Transport Industry


CHANGSHA: Chinese advanced technologies attracted companies from the United States, Germany, France and other countries to an international exhibition held in Zhuzhou city, central China’s Hunan Province.

The core technologies developed by CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co. Ltd. allow trains to automatically identify and diagnose technical faults, according to company representative Hou Zhaowen.

High-speed trains running on the China-Laos Railway, which began operations earlier this month, are now equipped with these technologies, ensuring improved reliability and performance.

Over the past six months, several countries in Asia and Europe have witnessed “China’s speed”, receiving more exports of rail vehicles.

In May, the first double-decker electric trains (EMU) of CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive for export to Europe rolled off the production line. With a maximum operating speed of 200 kilometers per hour, trains will run on railways in Austria, Germany, Hungary and other European countries.

A metro train that the company developed for Turkey began test operations in November. The train will run on a metro line connecting Istanbul’s city center to the city’s airport, which will open next year. It will be Turkey’s fastest metro line, with a speed of 120 kilometers per hour.

“The Chinese rail transportation equipment manufacturing industry is one of the industries with the highest level of innovation and the strongest international competitiveness,” said Feng Yaoxiang, an official with the China Council for the Promotion of Transportation. international trade.

“The industry is a key competitive advantage of China’s high-end equipment manufacturing in the global market,” Feng said.

After more than 60 years of efforts, China has built an advanced rail transportation equipment manufacturing system comprising independent research and development, comprehensive support facilities and large-scale operations.

The country ranks first in electrification of railways and operating mileage of high-speed and urban railways, according to Feng.
