Guideway and vehicle are Made In Germany

Post by david »

Actually, the guideway used on the Chengdu test line was made in Germany and shipped to Chengdu via conventional rail.
The TSB vehicle (2nd Generation) was made in Germany too, but it was shipped to China with an Antonov airplane.

This is very different from the strategy practiced at SMT line, where the guideway was designed and developed by a consortium together with Max Bögl but made in China (under license of course) to save costs.

TSB in Chengdu

Post by IMB »

Xinzhu Corporation in Sichuan Province has introduced an embedded maglev transport system, developed by German company – Max Bogl. The design of this embedded maglev system involves smart technologies like wireless transmission and cloud computing. This allows the vehicle to run at a minimum time interval between departures, meaning it can handle more passengers. Compared with other maglev systems, it's said to be much safer and can adapt to different weather conditions.

As a result of excessive investment, China has recently tightened its control over new urban projects involving subways and light rail.

Jian Lian, chief engineer of Chengdu Xinzhu Road & Bridge Machinery Co., Ltd., told CGTN that this could mean greater opportunities for maglev.

"It's not economical to employ subways for intercity travel. And high-speed rail, due to its large capacity and relatively high cost, is not an optimal choice as well. For the embedded maglev system, the speed of 160 kilometers per hour is enough for one-hour intercity travel. Besides, it's economical, safe and environmentally friendly," he explained.
