Bombardier gets railcar order from China Railways

MONTREAL, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Bombardier Inc said on Wednesday that its Chinese joint venture received an order for 640 high-speed train cars from the Chinese Ministry of Railways.

The order for Bombardier Sifang Power (Qingdao) Transportation Ltd. is valued at $1.5 billion, with Bombardier's share totaling $596 million. The trains will be made at Bombardier Sifang Power facilities in Qingdao, China.

The order calls for delivering 40 of Bombardier's electric 16-car trainsets, which are capable of reaching speeds of 250 kilometres an hour. Deliveries are scheduled for February 2009 to August 2010.

"It is the largest single order for rail passenger cars placed at one time in Chinese rail history," Bombardier said in a release.

Bombardier Sifang Power is a joint venture between Bombardier Transportation, Power Corp of Canada and China South Locomotive and Rolling Stock Industry (Group) Corporation.

very good news, looks like the CRH5(Regina) worked well enough on the Guangzhou-Shengzhen line to justify purchases of more trains. They're bigger too, no need for articulation anymore. Great news.

Bombardier Joint Venture Awarded Contract For 40 High-Speed Trainsets In China

Berlin, October 31, 2007

First Application Of ZEFIRO Modular Concept Offers China New Dimension In Overnight Rail Travel

Bombardier Transportation announced today that its Chinese joint venture, Bombardier Sifang Power (Qingdao) Transportation Ltd. (BSP), has received an order for 40, 16-car, high-speed trainsets (640 cars) from the Chinese Ministry of Railways (MOR). The order is valued at approximately 1 billion euros ($1.5 billion US) with Bombardier’s share valued at approximately 413 million euros ($596 million US). BSP is a joint venture between Bombardier Transportation, Power Corporation of Canada and China South Locomotive and Rolling Stock Industry (Group) Corporation.

The contract was signed during today’s ceremony in the presence of Mr. Zhang Shuguang, Deputy Chief Engineer of MOR and Director General of Transportation Bureau and Laurent Beaudoin, Chairman and CEO, Bombardier Inc. It is the largest single order for rail passenger cars placed at one time in Chinese rail history.

The new electric-multiple-unit (EMU) trainsets will be capable of speeds up to 250 km/h. Twenty of the EMU trains will be specially designed for overnight service and fitted with sleeping berth interiors. These trains will feature the world’s first EMU sleepers cars capable of travel up to 250 km/h and will be developed utilizing core elements of the BOMBARDIER ZEFIRO family of high-speed and very high-speed products. The new 16‑car trains (at an overall length of 430 m) represent a sophisticated mix of new modular concepts and proven technology in a unique application. The high-speed sleepers will offer overnight travellers an advanced level of comfort, convenience and trip-time efficiency in a region where long-distance train trips are common.

The remaining 20 EMU trains will be upgraded, 16-car versions of successful eight-car trains now being delivered to the MOR as part of orders placed in May 2005 and October 2004.

Bombardier’s ZEFIRO family of trains specifically address the need for additional flexibility in next-generation rolling stock. ZEFIRO train designs introduce new methods for improving operating efficiency, capacity, interoperability and true cross-border travel.

Bombardier Transportation President Andre Navarri said the contract further strengthens Bombardier’s presence in the high-speed rail market and underscores its leadership in China. “It is always good news to sign a contract of this magnitude,“ said Navarri, “but especially when the order is based on a customer’s prior positive experience with our products and trust in our technology leadership. China is one of the most important rail markets in the world, and we are pleased to be continuing our positive relationship wth the MOR.”

Stéphane Rambaud-Measson, President, Bombardier Transportation Mainline and Metros Division, said “This order is clear recognition of the high level of reliability reached by Bombardier high-speed trains already in operation in China, as well as of our ability to efficiently manage a complex localisation project in a new and very demanding market. All Chinese Bombardier high-speed trains are manufactued at our joint venture in Qingdao with very high levels of contribution from the local rail industry and its expertise.”

Jianwei Zhang, President and Chief Country Representative, Bombardier China, said Bombardier’s growing success is based on consistent market focus and a product portfolio that is well-suited to the country’s vibrant transit sector. “Bombardier has a long-term commitment to this market, “ said Zhang. “We offer one of the broadest product portfolios in the world and that is apparent in the spread of contracts we have for high-speed trains, locomotives, propulsion equipment, commuter trains, automated transit systems, metro cars, signalling systems and other products. This is a priority market, and our focus here is showing results.”

The new high-speed EMU trains will be manufactured at BSP production facilities in Qingdao, China. BOMBARDIER MITRAC propulsion systems for the trains will be jointly produced by Bombardier CPC Propulsion System Co. Ltd., a Bombardier joint venture based in Changzhou, and Bombardier facilities in Europe. MITRAC propulsion systems are included in more than 23,000 rail vehicles worldwide.

First deliveries of the new trains are scheduled for February 2009. Delivery of the final train is expected August 2010.

Guangshen is using CRH1 (Regina), I think exclusively now. I don't see any of the older Blue Arrow trains anymore. However, the maximum operating speed on Guangshen remains 200 km/h, and only very very briefly. It mostly stays in 160-180 km/h.

too many curves right? if i remember correctly. the Regina was designed to be somewhat of a commuter highspeed train, should nagivate the area with no problem.

As for Blue Arrow, good riddens, that thing was an energy gazzaler.

China to invest 100 billion yuan in intercity passenger transport service

BEIJING, Nov. 20 (Xinhua) – China will build 12,000 kilometers of intercity high speed passenger transport network in Bohai-rim, Yangtze River Delta and Pearl River Delta areas by 2020, according to a national railway network plan.

It plans to invest at least 100 billion yuan in accomplishing the project in the next decade.

Currently, 16 passenger railways are under construction. Included are the Beijing–Tianjin, Hefei-Nanjing and Hefei-Wuhan railways to be in operation soon.

Construction of the Harbin-Daqing, Wuhan-Guangzhou, Zhengzhou-Xi’ an and Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong railways is well under way.

According to the Ministry of Railways, feasibility study on constructing the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway program was approved recently.

The project is one the most advanced in the world with unrivaled mileage under one-time construction.

China Railway in $3bn flotation

The firm's shares are on track to trade from 3 December
China's state-owned railway builder has raised 22.44bn yuan ($3bn; £1.5bn) in its initial public offering on the Shanghai Stock Exchange.
China Railway Group said the share sale was massively oversubscribed - attracting 3.38 trillion yuan of bids to buy shares, a new Chinese record.

Interest was strong despite a cooling of China's main stock market, which has lost about 20% in the past month.

Many analysts believe that shares in China are overvalued.

China Railway Group's shares are due to begin trading on 3 December.

There are also plans for a stock market listing in Hong Kong.

Bids for China Railway Group trumped the 3.378 trillion yuan bid for oil group PetroChina.

PetroChina raised 66.8bn yuan - a record for a mainland China exchange.

Rail projects 'major boost' for Fujian
By Xin Dingding and Hu Meidong (China Daily)
Updated: 2007-11-24 08:48


Fuzhou - Construction of two new railway lines in Fujian Province began on Friday.

"Once they are completed in five years' time, the new lines will be a major boost to the province's rail network, as well as help provide a fast, convenient link between coastal and inland areas," Liu Zhijun, minister of railways, said.

The lines will also contribute to the economic development of Fujian, which is considered the base of the economic zone on the west side of the Taiwan Straits.

One of the railways starts in Xiamen, a major city of Fujian, and will head southwest along the coast to Shenzhen in Guangdong Province.

With trains able to travel at up to 200 kph along some sections of the 502.4-km double-track electrified railway, the journey time between the two cities will be slashed from the current 11 hours to less than three, Liu said.

On completion in 2011, the railway will carry both passenger and cargo trains, stopping at 20 stations. It is estimated that 12 million tons of cargo will be transported on the line every year.

The 41.7 billion yuan ($5.6 billion) construction cost will be shared by the Ministry of Railways, and the Fujian and Guangdong provincial governments.

Yu Kaiyang, director of the Fujian provincial railway construction office, said the railway will provide improved access between the Pearl River Delta and Yangtze River Delta.

At its northern end, two other railway projects are already under construction, linking Xiamen and Fuzhou, capital of Fujian Province, and linking Fuzhou and Wenzhou in Zhejiang Province.

In the future, passengers will be able to travel by train all the way from Shanghai to Shenzhen, Yu said.

The second major line will link Fujian with Central China, via Jiangxi Province, passing through 23 stations.

The 603.6-km double track electrified railway will run from Nanchang, capital of Jiangxi, to Fujian, and have terminals in both Fuzhou and Putian.

The railway will carry both passengers and cargo, and is expected to carry some 20 million tons of cargo every year.

Estimated to cost 51.8 billion yuan, the railway will open to traffic in 2012.

"This is Fujian's first modern railway leading to the hinterland," Yu said.

"Together with other ongoing railway projects, it will provide a direct route for provinces in Central China to the ocean. It can also be used to carry coal to provinces like Jiangxi."

The new line will cut traveling distance between the two provinces by at least 117 km, he said.

Beijing-Shanghai express rail project invites bids
(Xinhua)
Updated: 2007-12-07 13:59


BEIJING -- The company leading the construction of a Beijing-Shanghai express railway has invited bids for the project, which is to begin construction in January.

In an announcement on Thursday, the Beijing Shanghai Express Railway Company invited global firms and organizations to compete for the project consulting work.

Two other contracts, for civil construction and engineering supervision work, are limited to domestic institutions and companies.

The bidder for the global contract could also be a joint venture of one foreign consulting institution and two local ones, with the Chinese side as lead bidder.

Bidding closes on December 17.

Construction is projected to take five years. The 160 billion yuan (21 billion US dollars) project is becoming a reality after 10 years of preparation.

The announcement said the Ministry of Railways would provide 78.9 percent of funding, significantly more than the 51 percent proportion mentioned in earlier reports, the Beijing Times said, citing sources familiar with the situation.

The remainder of the funding would come from local governments and companies.

Major beneficiaries are expected to be the railway construction and machine manufacturing companies.

The project will provide five-hour express services between the two cities. The 1,318-kilometer high-speed railway, when completed, will be the longest high-speed rail line in the world. It is expected to carry 160 million passengers annually and double the transport capacity between the two cities.

China Railway +27% On HK Debut
Infrastructure Demand Expected

6 December 2007

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)-- China Railway Group Ltd. (0390.HK) rose 27% on its debut on the Hong Kong stock exchange Friday morning, on expectations of strong demand for infrastructure in the country.

At 0220 GMT, China Railway was trading at HK$7.35, above its initial public offering price of HK$5.78. The benchmark Hang Seng Index was up 1.1%.

But China Railway's Hong Kong debut was dwarfed by the performance of its A shares Monday, which rose 63% on their first day of trading. At 0220 GMT, the company's A shares were up 1.7% at CNY8.49.

"I think the debut is quite solid. There is always a price differential between the A shares and H shares of the same company and I'm not surprised," said Kitty Chan, a director of CASH Asset Management.

A company's A shares usually rise more than its H shares due to China's overly abundant liquidity and Chinese investors' practice of speculative trading in new stocks, analysts said.

China Railway Group, the world's third-largest construction contractor in terms of revenue, raised US$2.46 billion last week in an initial public offering of H shares, ahead of a listing in Hong Kong. Those shares were priced at the top of an indicative range of HK$5.03-HK$5.78 a share.

That followed the company's IPO of A shares in China, which raised CNY22.44 billion from selling 4.675 billion A shares at the top of an indicative range of CNY4.00-CNY4.80 a share in late November.

China Railway Group is the first Chinese firm to carry out a dual float on a domestic bourse and in Hong Kong in which the mainland China listing was done first.

China Railway Group has built over two-thirds of China's more than 75,000 kilometers of railway links and 95% of the country's electrified railway lines.

Apart from railway construction and the related design and equipment manufacturing businesses which together contribute about 93% of the company's revenue, China Railway Group has mining and property operations, with a medium-sized land bank of 4.7 million square meters of gross floor area.

It also builds expressways, bridges and tunnels.

Beijing to build world's largest metro system
(Xinhua)
Updated: 2007-12-10 14:48


BEIJING -- Total investment in Beijing's subway system is set to approach 80 billion yuan (US$10.8 billion) by 2010, and the city's underground network is expected to be the world's largest as of 2015.

The financing includes 71.5 billion yuan approved by the municipal government for public transport during the 11th five-year plan period, which ends in 2010, the Beijing Morning Post reported on Monday.

The huge investment will boost construction of rail lines, which are expected to total 561 km by 2015 with a capacity of 9 million passengers daily.

By that time, rail service will extend from the downtown area to many key locations on the city fringes, including the Olympic Park and seven suburban satellite cities.

Subway transport is expected to account for 50 percent of all public transit use within eight years, greatly easing pressure on the roads.

Five new subway routes -- Line 6, the second phases of Line 10 and Line 8, and the Yizhuang and Daxing lines -- with a total length of nearly 140 km began construction in the city on Saturday. All are to be completed by 2015.

Currently, the first phases of Line 10 and Line 8, as well as a 28-km line linking downtown to Beijing Capital International Airport, are under construction.

The capital now has Line 1, Line 2, Line 5, Line 13 and the Batong line in operation, carrying about 2.3 million passengers each day. Their combined length is 142 km.

Beijing-Shanghai high-speed rail delayed by years: ministry

BEIJING, Dec 8, 2007 (AFP) - A planned high-speed rail line between Beijing and Shanghai is unlikely to be completed until at least 2013, China's government has said, in the latest setback for the long-delayed project.

A notice on the website of the national railway ministry on Saturday also said the ministry will take a 78.9 percent stake in an investment vehicle formed to finance the project, whose ballooning costs have fuelled delays.

The line is expected to take five years to complete, the notice said, meaning it will not be operational for the 2010 World Expo to be hosted by Shanghai, China's commercial hub, as originally hoped.

The project was first proposed in 1994 and was originally supposed to be completed before the 2008 Beijing Olympics. As delays mounted, the government later set its sights on completion in time for the Shanghai expo.

China's railway minister had said in September that construction would begin "soon" but no specific date was given.

Trains on the 1,300-kilometre (800-mile) line will run at speeds of up to 350 kilometres per hour, halving travel time between China's two dominant cities to less than five hours, state media has reported previously.

The project, which has been on the drawing board for more than 10 years was expected to start construction last year but has been delayed by the central government as costs spiralled.

It finally won approval in September with a budget nearly twice the initial estimate of 130 billion yuan (17.3 billion dollars).

The ministry notice gave no information on how much the investment vehicle would raise.

Rising real estate and construction material prices have been blamed for the soaring budget.

I dont know the exact name, but its most likely called " CNR CRC Tangshan Maglev " or something like that.

But dont mix it up with this one, which is a low speed urban train


From what I know its a homegrown chinese maglev capable of 500 kmh, which is tested at the Tongji University, at the Jiading Campus west of Shanghai to be exact.

Thats a pic of the guideway at the Tongji University Campus, made from one of the Students dorms, but unfortunately without vehicle







The green/white livery of the Train is due to the fact, that they originally planned to take it into service for the WorldExpo 2010, so that it fits the expo-Logo design (not kidding).
Unfortunately I have only this single pic of it, but as its on a campus with dozenz of students, there should be more. I have also been to the Shagnhai Metrofans webpage, but didnt find anything there....
