CRRC Unveils their Lightest and New Advanced Energy-efficient Metro Train at InnoTrans 2018

 

CRRC (China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation, the company), the world’s largest rolling stock manufacturer, debuted their latest, carbon fiber metro train, ‘CETROVO’, to crowds of industry leaders, railway enthusiasts and media in Berlin today. The new train is 13% lighter than traditional steel or aluminium metro trains, making it the company’s lightest and most energy-efficient to-date and the first of its kind in China. The new vehicle also has the future in mind with a range of “intelligent” design features including “magic windows’ and touch-screen enabled mirrors for a digital age of passenger travel.

Sun Yongcai, President of CRRC, said “Rail transit equipment is on the cusp of a revolution. The acceptance and introduction of carbon fiber materials have allowed for lighter, more energy-efficient trains. With that now comes the continual introduction of more intelligent services aimed at improving the maintenance, operations, and passenger experience. Moving forward, CRRC will continue to invest in research and development and the application of new technologies and carbon fiber materials on 600KM high-speed Maglev trains, high-speed EMU’s and subways”.

CETROVO aims to provide passengers with a ubiquitous “smart service” and includes a series of advanced technical features. Including, car windows that can be transformed into touch-screen displays. Passengers can watch the news, browse the web, buy tickets, watch videos and live TV shows all via CETROVO’s “magic window”. The train also comes equipped with internet-enabled touch-screen mirrors; self-cleaning seats; advanced vibration and noise reduction technology; an integrated hearing-aid system; and an air conditioning and lighting system that can ‘react’ to changing conditions for a more enjoyable journey.

Ding Sansan, Deputy Chief of Engineering of CRRC Sifang, said of the new generation train, “Lightweight manufacturing is a metro building concept to achieve better energy efficiency. Carbon fiber is the most advanced material available, and CETROVO incorporates this technology beautifully. The car body, the bogie frame, the driver’s cab equipment cabinets are all made from carbon fiber composite materials. The result is a lighter train and more space for new features.”

Additional features of the train include:

  • A new energy-efficient traction system to achieve a higher energy efficiency of up to 15% compared to traditional metro trains
  • Over 1,100 sensory points to monitor the train in real-time to optimise efficiency and reduce maintenance costs.
  • Direct drive technology with permanent magnet synchronous motors
  • A silicon carbide converter to improve traction efficiency
  • An active radial system on the bogie that can control the wheelset for improved performance negotiating small-radius curves
  • An internal battery that can provide traction power for up to 15KM
  • A flexible 2+N composition suitable for up to 12 cars
  • Substantially reduced wheel wear

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
