In recent years, China’s high-speed rail has developed rapidly, building the world’s largest high-speed rail network and going abroad to build high-speed trains for many countries in the world.
Advantages of High-speed Rail in China
First, advanced technology, safe and reliable. China has advanced technologies in high-speed rail integration, construction, equipment manufacturing and operation management. They have the strength to go abroad collectively and can challenge any competitor.
Second, the quality is good and the price is reasonable. It has been calculated that the average cost for foreign companies to build high-speed rail is more than $500,000 per kilometer. But in China, costs are about half as high and Chinese companies are more than twice as efficient as foreign ones.
In terms of safety performance, Chinese standards are basically the same as European standards, and construction standards are much higher than European standards.
Third, rich operational experience. At present, China has more than 1,300 high-speed trains, ranking first in the world. Trains run at speeds of 200-380 km/h, with the most complete mileage. The total mileage of the emu is about 1.6 billion kilometers.
Fourth, high efficiency and strong delivery capacity. The complete Chinese railway industry chain including the upstream and downstream industries is very developed, which is impossible for the average foreign manufacturer.
The high productivity of Chinese workers ensures timely delivery of products. It would take a foreign manufacturer 18 to 22 months to build an identical train, compared with 12 months for a Chinese company.ntly.
