China started to import technology of high speed train with speed of 200 kilometers per hour in 2004. The first Beijing-Tianjin high speed rail with proprietary intellectual property rights began operation in 2008. Multiple unit train CRH380A started operation in 2010. China has spent six years in the high speed rail development which takes developed countries 50 years.
As of the end of last December, the mileage of China’s high speed railway approached 13,000 kilometers with train speed above 200 kilometers per hour. China’s high speed rail ranks the first in terms of mileages, speed, scales and development speed in the world.
China’s high speed railway set speed record.
China’s high speed railway leaps to the leading level in the world in six year. The country built motor train unit technology platform and manufacturing system with train speed of 200-to-250 kilometers per hour after it made innovated the imported technology in 2004. In 2008, China developed motor train unit with speed of 350 kilometer per hour independently. Two years later, the new generation high speed train with speed of 380 kilometers per hour was manufactured.
China’s high speed railway has overcome a series of technological problems at the train speed level of 350 kilometers per hour and 380 kilometers per hour, like the safety of long time operation, stability problem, frequently passing in and out tunnels, etc.
One engineer from the Ministry of Railways said that all these problems have not been seen or been solved in other countries in the world, but China has already figured out these problems and applied these technologies into practical operation.
