Chinese locomotive company ZELC reaches out to world

2010-08-22

The photo taken on Aug. 18, 2010 shows locomotives parking in a storage area in Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Company Limited ( ZELC) in Zhuzhou, central China's Hunan Province. ZELC, a subsidiary of China South Locomotive & Rolling (CSR) which is one of China's biggest maker of rail vehicles, signed July 23, 2010 a contract of 4 billion yuan (590 million U.S. dollars) with Malaysia's traffic ministry for inter-city trains which will be put into service for the north-south line of Kuala Lumpur, the city's busiest shuttle line. Aside from Malaysia, the locomotives and carriages made by ZELC of CSR will travel in countries like Singapore, which bought 114 subway maintenance vehicles in June 1, 2009, India, which signed a contract to purchase subway trains on June 21, 2010, Saudi Arabia, which ordered locomotives on July 20, 2010, and so on. These successes helped the company earn a total of 760 million U.S. dollars in overseas trade as well as a global brand. The company is at the same time enhanced by its world class key technologies in product design and manufacture. The company plans to raise the proportion of overseas income to gross income from the current 10 percent up to 20 percent in next five years. ZELC of CSR has enough confidence to do so, especially after it brought HXD1B high power AC drive 6-axle (9600kw) freight electric locomotives into its product category on January 16, 2009. This type of locomotive is independently developed by the company itself, the most advanced strong power AC drive electric locomotive.(Xinhua/Zhao Zhongzhi)

Cabinet approves draft of Thailand-China negotiations to build high-speed train

วันอังคาร ที่ 07 ก.ย. 2553 BANGKOK, Sept 7

The Cabinet on Tuesday agreed to a proposed draft framework of Thailand-China negotiations to build a high speed train system linking China, Laos, Thailand and Malaysia.

Deputy government spokesman Supachai Jaisamut told a press briefing that the drafted framework of negotiations was aimed at upgrading the rail system to pave the way for building high speed rail lines connecting the four countries of China, Laos, Thailand and Malaysia.

The decision was made after officials from China’s Railways Ministry had explored Bangkok-Nong Khai rail route and discussed with senior Lao officials from August 18-24, Mr Supachai said.

Following a feasibility study of the rail development, the high-speed rail lines were expected to serve trains travelling at the speed of at least 200 kilometres per hour in Thailand.

The three high-speed rail routes in Thailand included Bangkok-Nong Khai, Bangkok-Rayong and Bangkok-Padang Besar, a Malaysian town bordering Thailand in Songkhla province.

Meanwhile, the high-speed rail network connects existing routes in southwestern China of Kunming to the Lao capital of Vientiane, Thailand’s Nong Khai, Rayong, Bangkok and the Thai-Malaysian border town of Padang Besar.

Following the Cabinet approval, the Transport Ministry will conduct a public hearing on the rail development project and then will forward it to Parliament for further consideration, Mr Supachai said.

When parliamentary consideration is completed, the ministry will confer with Chinese government officials about the framework of negotiations for further cooperation with Southeast Asian countries.

In a related development, the spokesman added that the Cabinet also approved a plan to borrow US$400 million from the Export-Import Bank of China (China Eximbank), intended to improve the Thai rail system.

The loan will be allocated for three projects. The project is to procure electric locomotives and spare parts aiming to replace 50 aging General Electric locomotives used for over 45 years.

The two other projects are to improve the Phitsanulok-Chiang Mai rail route and the Thung Song-Hat Yai line. (MCOT online news)

I think the descriptions got mixed up.

Isn't the first picture a CRH3-380A (originally Velaro-based until Siemens stopped cooperating)

And the 3rd picture a CRH1-380A (a new joint CSR-Bombardier design)

It's so complicated. Which is the CRH-380A(Official name), CRH3-380A, right?

That CRH1-380A(according to you), the Bombardier just call it 380 Zefiro, and they have not refer to CSR.

All 3 versions look amazing. There's a streamlined and more standardized look to the new -380A versions....

I also like the fact that the trains have turned out more "Asian" looking, almost Japanese inspired, rather than looking "European". I'm not a fan of the TGV/KTX trains.

Why so many different types of trains? Isn't it cheaper to make all the trains the same( the construction, but also the maintenance, the trainings etc)? by example one type for 380km/h, one for 350km/h , 250 km/h etc.

Chinese are buying all HSR technologies on the planet to copy them for the future. This is why they built the MAGLEV in Shanghai borrowing Siemens ThyssenKrupp HOWTO. The aim is the stealing of tech information.

Chinese are always the same. BEST COPYWORKER IN THE WORLD.
