Trains for the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed rail project roll off the production line in China
The trains will be transported to Indonesia, marking significant progress in the construction of the railway, a historic project under the Belt and Road Initiative. Their delivery will lay a solid foundation for the high-quality completion of the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway on schedule, the company said.
The eleven passenger trains, known as Electric Multiple Units (EMUs), were designed and manufactured by CRRC Qingdao Sifang Co., Ltd., as was the Complete Inspection Train (CIT), which is intended to perform railway inspection duties.
Based on advanced Fuxing high-speed train technology, the high-speed EMUs and CIT have been designed and manufactured according to Chinese standards, while being adapted to the local operational environment and line conditions in Indonesia. , as well as the local culture.
Zhang Fangtao, chief designer of the EMUs, said their bodies had a streamlined appearance and were painted silver and red, symbolizing prosperity.
The EMUs have a maximum operating speed of 350 km/h and feature advanced technology, safety, intelligence, strong environmental adaptability and distinctive local characteristics, Zhang said.
The EMUs have been designed to suit the operating environment along the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway and feature smart sensing technology and a monitoring and early warning system earthquakes. The trains are equipped with 2,500 monitoring points for rapid detection, early warning and diagnosis of all key systems.
EMUs feature several low-carbon and energy-saving features, namely their low-resistance streamlined contours, smooth carriage design, and regenerative braking energy recovery technology. The corrosion-resistant design and advanced protection technology also make EMUs more resistant to salt spray and ultraviolet aging. Meanwhile, the “high acceleration mode” enables excellent performance on slopes.
Zhang said EMUs have large passenger capacity and perfect service functions, and can provide passengers with a comfortable driving experience.
The CIT has been designed to provide comprehensive inspection functions for the Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway, including a diverse range of inspection equipment for track alignment, overhead cables and control systems. communication and signaling.
The Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway connects Jakarta, the Indonesian capital, and Bandung, a famous tourist city in Indonesia. With a total length of 142 km, the line was designed with a maximum speed of 350 km/h.
