Rolling stock manufacturer CRRC has unveiled a new electrical multiple unit (EMU). The suburban EMU manufactured by CRRC Qingdao Sifang Co., Ltd. was presented at the UrTran 2017 exhibition in Beijing, on 19 June 2017.

New Suburban EMU

Designed for journeys of 50 to 100 km, which are longer than those typically made by metro, the EMU has more powerful traction equipment than a metro train, enabling it to reach speeds of up to 140 km/h.

Like metro trains, it features rapid acceleration and braking. The dual-system unit is capable of drawing power at 25 kV 50 Hz and 1·5 kV DC.

Faster Trains for Suburbs

The train forms part of a vision to create a ‘1 hour metropolitan area’, where faster trains could serve outer suburbs and satellite cities that could be reached in an hour from the centre of a large city. Several cities are developing such networks, including Beijing, Guangzhou, Wuhan and Wenzhou.
