Activities for an eventual reactivation of the Transrapid test facility Emsland, Germany

The company IABG, which manages the Transrapid Test Facility Emsland (TVE) in Germany, has confirmed initial talks with the Chinese railroad group CRRC aimed at resuming test operations at the track for new Chinese developments of the Transrapid. Tests in the range of up to 600 km/h [370+ mph] are to be carried out.

The current condition of the TVE is considered to be in need of repair. The windings of the linear motor, as well as the slotted waveguide, have already been removed from the guideway. Restarting the trial operation would require significant investment in infrastructure. It would also require a time-consuming planning lead time and might even conflict with the legally fixed dismantling of the plant. The CRRC's motives are unclear, as Chinese locations for new maglev test tracks are also being discussed, which could themselves possibly even become part of a future application track.
