Zhuzhou firm’s train exports gather speed

Cutting-edge Chinese technologies have attracted firms from the United States, Germany, France and other countries to an international expo in Zhuzhou City, central 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.

The high-speed trains on the China-Laos Railway, launched earlier this month, have now been equipped with the technologies, guaranteeing improved reliability and performance.

“China speed” has now received more export orders for rail transit vehicles.

In May, CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive’s first double-decker electric multiple unit trains for export to Europe rolled off the production line. With a maximum operating speed of 200 kilometers per hour, the trains will run on railways in Austria, Germany, Hungary etc.

The company’s subway train developed for Turkey began trial operations in November. It will run on a subway line linking Istanbul to the city’s airport, which will open next year. It will be the fastest subway line in Turkey.

“The Chinese rail transit equipment manufacturing industry is one of the industries with the highest-level innovation and strongest international competitiveness,” said Feng Yaoxiang, a China Council for the Promotion of International Trade official.
