Hey Lawdefender. Can I ask you something about Guangzhou's new Baiyun Station? It looks amazing and is certainly among the very best Chinese High Speed Rail Stations in my opinion.
Do you about the types of trains that will be serving the New Baiyun Station?

I suspect that it will probably become a new station that will partly replace the Guangzhou South High Speed Station for high speed train services using the Wuhan - Guangzhou, Guiyang - Guangzhou and Nanning - Guangzhou High Speed Lines that terminate in Guangzhou. It's far closer and better connected to the city centre, Zhujiang New Town and Pazhou than the South Station.

In this way, Guangzhou South Station would be freed up for more through high speed train services such as services from Beijing, Zhengzhou, Wuhan, Chengdu, Chongqing, Guiyang, Nanning and Kunming that continue towards Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Zhuhai.

I also believe that once the Guangzhou - Shanwei High Speed Line opens in 2023, services to cities east or north east of Guangzhou such as Shantou, Xiamen, Fuzhou, Ganzhou, Nanchang, Hangzhou, Wenzhou and Shanghai will use the currently under construction Guangzhou Xintang station.

Do you have any information regarding my query?

Guangzhou Baiyun Station is one of the main passenger stations of the "five main and four auxiliary" railway hubs in Guangzhou. It is expected to be completed and put into operation by the end of 2023. By then, Baiyun Station will undertake the regular-speed train lines of Guangzhou Station and Guangzhou East Station.

Guangzhou Baiyun Station and Station Yard Integrated Transportation Hub Integration Project is located in the northwest of Baiyun District, about 5 kilometers away from Guangzhou Railway Station in the south and 2 kilometers away from Baiyun New Town in the east. The total investment of the project exceeds 44 billion yuan. Guangzhou South Station, which has the largest passenger flow in the country, covers an area of 615,000 square meters, while Baiyun Station covers an area of 2.63 million square meters, four times that of Guangzhou South Station. However, if the total area of the station building of the railway station is calculated, the area of the station building of Baiyun Station is only 143,000 square meters, and the total area of the station building of Guangzhou South Station is 485,000 square meters. Therefore, the large scale of Baiyun Station is mainly reflected in the total area of the station building.

At the beginning of the construction of Baiyun Station, construction space was reserved for as many as 6 subway lines, including the north extension of Guangzhou Metro Line 8 and the under-construction Line 12, Fangcun to Baiyun Airport Intercity, 24 Line 8 and Foshan Metro Line 8, as well as a reserved east-west line. In addition, Baiyun Station will also be equipped with large-scale comprehensive transportation hubs such as a long-distance passenger transportation center, a tourist bus station and an urban bus station.

Starting from June 28, the subway ride codes of Guangzhou and the four cities of Nanjing, Chengdu, Xi'an and Nanning have been interconnected. So far, Guangzhou has realized the interconnection with 10 urban subway ride codes.

After this interconnection, passengers can use the Guangzhou Metro APP to scan the QR code to take the subway in Nanjing, Chengdu, Xi'an and Nanning, or use the Guangzhou Metro APP, the Chengdu Metro APP, the Xi'an Metro APP, and the Nanning Rail Transit APP. It greatly enhances the experience of passengers in cross-city subway travel.

After the system function is launched, passengers only need to upgrade the subway APP in their city to the corresponding version when they swipe their QR code to ride in different places. There is no need to download or replace other APPs, making it more convenient for passengers to travel by subway across cities.

At present, Guangzhou Metro has realized the interconnection and interoperability with subway ride codes of 10 cities in Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Tianjin, Shenzhen, Nanchang, Nanjing, Chengdu, Xi'an and Nanning, and will continue to promote the interconnection and interoperability of QR codes with other regional subways in the future. .

Guangzhou's first batch of hydrogen energy sanitation vehicles begins operation

On August 8, 2022, 24 hydrogen fuel cell sprinklers drove out of the new hydrogen refueling station of Xinhai Energy, marking the official operation of the first batch of hydrogen energy sanitation vehicles in Guangzhou.

The 18-ton hydrogen energy sanitation vehicle put into use this time is equipped with a 60KW fuel cell engine, which was independently developed by Guangzhou Xiongtao Hydrogen Heng Technology Co., Ltd. The volume power ratio of this engine is 410W/L, and the mass-power ratio is 405W/ kg, the engine system efficiency is greater than 48%; the sanitation vehicle system uses a 40KW graphite stack, which was developed by Shenzhen Xiongtao Hydrogen Technology Co., Ltd. The volume power ratio of the graphite stack is 3.5KW/L, and the designed service life is Over 20,000 hours.

The hydrogen energy sanitation vehicle can be filled with hydrogen in 4-8 minutes and can operate continuously; the fuel cell engine has high specific energy, high power density and long cruising range; high energy conversion efficiency, the highest efficiency can reach 60%; Temperature resistance, can provide timely sanitation work guarantee power in winter. In addition, it has obvious environmental protection advantages. The last thing produced by the combustion of hydrogen energy is water, which can achieve zero pollution.

The battery membrane electrode is the core component of the hydrogen energy vehicle engine. "The battery membrane electrode converts hydrogen into electricity and water, so that the hydrogen energy vehicle can run smoothly." The relevant person in charge of Hongji Chuangneng Technology (Guangzhou) Co., Ltd. told reporters that now Guangzhou has realized the localization of fuel cell membrane electrodes. , Industrialization. "In 2021, Hongji Chuangneng achieved the production and sales of 1 million membrane electrodes, ranking first in the country, accounting for half of the country's production, breaking the foreign monopoly.

The 1,500-ton annual high-purity hydrogen project of Guangzhou Petrochemical has been put into operation this year. It is expected that by 2025, more than 20,000 tons of special-purpose vehicle energy will be supplied to meet the needs of 5,000 hydrogen fuel cell buses.
