DB Signs MoU with China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation

Coinciding with German Chancellor Dr Angela Merkel’s visit to China, Dr. Rüdiger Grube, on behalf of Deutsche Bahn, signed agreements with in Beijing relating to a high-speed traffic maintenance contract and a regional transport project in Dalian, as part of an initiative to expand their activities in the Chinese rail sector.

The Memoranda of Understandings were signed with China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC), relating to a maintenance system for high-speed multiple units and the provision of mutual support in addressing operating problems arising from wheel-on-rail contract. CR, which operates a 19,000km high-speed network with a fleet of 1,400 trains, for which DB will deliver maintenance and repair support for the company.

Dr. Rüdiger Grube, Chairman of the Management Board and CEO of Deutsche Bahn AG, said:


“The People’s Republic of China is an important market for us and will remain so in future. In view of the plans to invest more than 300 billion euros in transport infrastructure, we wish to benefit from the growth and potential in China. Our expertise is in high demand and our successful international activities also strengthen our position in our home market of Germany.

“There is a second project of which I am particularly proud: Our experts from DB Engineering & Consulting are the first foreigners to work on a regional transport project in China. As part of a consortium, they have a consultancy contract for the operation of regional transport routes in Dalian, a city with a population of 6 million.”

DB’s activities in China date back to 1966, and now has in excess of 5,000 employees in the country. DB had an active role in the construction of Metro Shanghai, the development of China’s high-speed rail network, and the Transrapid in Shanghai. DB opened a procurement office in Shanghai in 2015 in order to benefit from China’s production of rail sector products.

Railway Planning, Constructing and Operating Rail Infrastructure

Intelligent transport solutions are vital to cope with the sharp increase in mobility demand worldwide at acceptable environmental impact and resource consumption. DB AG has therefore focused its international rail transport activities in DB International. [gallery ids="12928,11956,11958"] Transport areas in most regions cannot be infinitely expanded. This is why our mobility-oriented society increasingly tries to ensure the most effective use of the areas together with the best possible interfacing of all the elements involved. Every mode of transport not only has to fulfil its bespoke provision tasks, but also requires its own special infrastructure.

Depots and Workshops

Modern forms of operations management in passenger and freight transport demand new concepts in maintenance and preparation of rolling stock for the next deployment. These include basic-interval timetables, train splitting, the use of train sets and motorised trains of varying types, through to high-speed trains. In addition, there is an ever increasing specialisation in the area of freight wagons. Both customers and operators expect reliability, availability and attractive conditions.

Logistics and Freight Transport Facilities

Companies that want to expand their marketing sphere, use new technologies and reduce their product cycles, need innovative and flexible logistics concepts based on new business models geared to match the specific demand. Here DB International not only illustrates the existing potential but also develops and plans sustainable concepts for implementation jointly with the customer. Our specific know-how about the demands of the logistics and transport market leads to integrative concepts and solutions to suit the specific customer, optimising production processes and lowering costs.

Rolling Stock Technology

Rolling stock for every gauge and area of use has to fulfil high demands in railway operations in terms of safety, reliability and economic efficiency. The success of corresponding projects is often decided already in the purchasing stage. However, it can also be influenced during operation, maintenance and modernisation. In passenger services, particular attention has to be paid to making the coaches attractive for passengers.

Command-Control and Signalling

Reliability, affordability and safety are criteria by which guided transport systems, national and international railway lines, regional and urban railways including trams are measured all over the world, no matter how modern and fast they are, and which innovative drive technology is used, operating at grade, elevated or in tunnels.

Railway Electrification Power Systems

Modern technical facilities with high availability are, in addition to attractive transport solutions, a further basic prerequisite for efficient long-distance, regional and local transport. We offer our knowledge on the various energy supply and electrification systems to both national and international railway and local transport undertakings, manufacturing companies and financial institutions. This applies to electro-technical systems for long-distance and regional railways, suburban railway systems, underground railways, dual or multi-system urban transit railways and trams or buses for above or underground networks.

Systems Engineering

Transport networks can only optimally function with a precise coordination of all elements and accordingly harmonise with each other. Systems Engineering views the individual parts of transport networks in isolation and also in their reciprocal effects in order to achieve the optimum results in the interaction between infrastructure and vehicle engineering, maintenance and operations.
