Two subway trains will be handed over to its client in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in mid February
They are among the subway products contracted by the China Northern Locomotive and Rolling Stock Industry Corporation (China CNR Corporation) and manufactured by the Shanghai Development Corporation of Rail Transit Equipment.
Most of the export products were finished and debugged by manufacturer by the beginning of the Year of Dragon.
This is the first time for Chinese subway products to enter the market in South America.
The two trains bright in color have relevant signs and equipment already fixed and are in good shape for running.
"The market of South America is mainly the market for European products. This time the China CNR Corporation gained a breakthrough in Argentina with a historic meaning of great importance," said Shi Bin from Shanghai Development Corporation of Rail Transit Equipment.
Because of the complexity of Buenos Aires' terrain and subway lines, the turn radius of all subway trains are required to be under 25 meters as against the standard turn radius of 80 meters.
"The turn radius become shorter, so the radian and curvature become greater, and the demand for linking becomes rigorous," said Shi Bin.
In spite of this rigorous demand, the Shanghai company achieved its goal beautifully.
It is said that another seven trains of 35 cars will be handed over before April. According to the contract, Shanghai still need to manufacture 21 trains of 105 cars and preparation work for the task is already underway.
