CRRC Unveils High-Speed EMUs for Jakarta-Bandung Railway

CRRC has completed the production of the electric multiple units (EMUs) for Indonesia’s Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway line.

Eleven sets of high-speed EMUs successfully rolled off the production line in Qingdao on 5 August 2022. They will now be shipped to Indonesia for operation on the upcoming high-speed line between Jakarta and Bandung.

The high-speed EMUs were designed and manufactured by CRRC Qingdao Sifang

The Jakarta-Bandung trains will operate at a maximum speed of 350 kilometres per hour using CRRC’s Fuxing EMU technology.

The units are equipped with intelligent sensing technology and earthquake monitoring systems suited for Indonesia’s local environment. They have also been designed with a strong resistance to salt spray and UV exposure.

Each 8-car train has one first-class car, one dining car and six second-class cars, with a total seating capacity of 601 passengers.

This line will be Indonesia’s first high-speed railway, spanning approximately 142 kilometres. Construction is expected to conclude by the end of 2022.
