China sets up coordination group for high-speed train innovation


www.chinaview.cn 2008-07-03

 BEIJING, July 3 (Xinhua) -- China has set up an inter-agency coordination group to enhance its ability to develop an advanced and safe high-speed rail system.

The Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) website, www.most.gov.cn, on Thursday released the grouping of MOST and the Ministry of Railways (MOR) to coordinate planning, research and development, industrial manufacturing and equipment upgrades in the country's high-speed rail sector.

MOST Minister Wan Gang, a former Audi chief technologist for hybrid vehicles, and MOR Minister Liu Zhijun co-chair the group.

MOR has tested the country's first high-speed railway connecting Beijing and Tianjin since the end of May, with an average speed of 300 km per hour. Last week, President Hu Jintao test rode the train, which covered 120 km within 30 minutes.

MOR promised to make sure safety and timeliness in operating the service between the capital and Tianjin, a co-host city for the upcoming Beijing Olympics in August.

On Tuesday, the country started to build its second inter-city high-speed rail line linking Nanjing and Shanghai, one of the most important business hubs in the Asia Pacific region. The 300-km line was estimated to cost 39.45 billion yuan (5.7 billion U.S. dollars) and would be completed in four years.

The high-ranking coordination group was established largely with an eye on clearing technological obstacles to build a high-speed trunk line between Beijing and Shanghai.

All key decision makers from the two ministries have joined the group, which also comprises 18 leading railway technologists. Thirteen academics from both the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS)and the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE) were invited to give advice to the decision makers on key issues.

The two ministries contracted a few research institutes and state-owned companies to develop the new-generation train, which boasts an average speed of 350 km per hour. The homegrown technologies, not only for train coaches but also for reliable railway systems, were expected to compete with the world's most cutting-edge know-how.

China previously contacted with German, French and Japanese high-speed train vendors to explore possibilities to introduce foreign-developed high-speed railway systems in the country. However, it was now resolute to build the network with its own proprietary technologies.

As an alternative, China had even built the world's first commercial maglev line, based on Siemens technology linking Pudongto the Shanghai Airport.

Among the 18,000 km of newly-built passenger railroads planned toward 2020, most were high-speed lines. The first commercial operation of the China High-speed Railway (CHR) would start before the opening of the Olympics on Aug. 8.

China starts work on Shanghai-Nanjing high-speed rail

2008-07-02

China broke ground on Tuesday for a 300 km high-speed passenger rail line between Shanghai and Nanjing, two cities in the populous, affluent Yangtze River Delta region of east China.

The new line, costing 39.45 billion yuan ($5.7 billion), is to be completed in four years.

It will run around the clock and offer services at three-minute intervals during peak hours. It will cut the travel time from two hours to 72 minutes.

"The new line is expected to boost the economy of the cities along it," said an unidentified railway official.

The route will have 21 stations and is forecast to carry up to 26.35 million people by 2020 and 38.44 million by 2030.

The delta area, one of the country's most economically robust, currently contributes more than 20 percent of the national gross domestic product.

Probably the Alstom/Datong electric double locomotives DJ4/HXD2 is 10,000 kW strong (13,410 hp), but it's basically 2 single locomotives coupled together.




If you look at single locomotives it's the HDX3 from (Dalian/Voith/Toshiba) that's the strongest with 7,200 kW (that's 9,655 hp).

That's cool. Hope this line can make Tianjin speed up with the development of the capital.

that's impossible. Trains don't have have enough turnaround time to justify a cleaning at every terminal. Some stops are only 1 minute long.

That is an interesting point- I have allways wondered with all these high speed trains. How much Wildlife- Birds and such do these trains hit?
I allways thought that the arodynamic shape of them allowed the Creatures to pass over the top of the train.
We do not have very high speeds here in Australia but I hit a swarm of Bees once doing 120kmh and it was quite a mess-- could hardly see through the windscreen.

Although, they look very very nice next to each other, acquiring high speed trains and their tech from more than one country probably isn't very economical. It might create logistical problems and decrease your bargaining possibilities, since you have to divide the number of trains you are going to buy from a country/company. So, why? I mean it is not like military or other strategic capabilities, you hardy have requirement for different sources in case of an unexpected event.
