China to Build Magnetic Levitation Train Running 600 kmph
China announced approval of technical plans to build magnetic levitation train, which runs 600 kmph, on January 25, 2018.
State-run CRRC Qingdao Sifang Co., Ltd, initiated the plan, which has been approved by the government of China.
The plan was reviewed by 19 academicians and experts. The reviewing team affirmed the plan after a series of queries and discussion, and unanimously disclosed the confirmation of approval on official media the following day.
The project is one of 18 national key research and development plans set by the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2016. High-speed magnetic levitation railway has gained popularity due to the cutting-edge transit technology.
Japan’s superconducting magnetic levitation train reached a top test speed of 603 kmph, and the German-designed vehicle has the ability to hit 505 kmph. The operating speed of the maglev trains in Shanghai, which use German technology, is 430 kmph.
China has already built a 25,000-kms network of high speed trains, which can travels at the speed of 350 kmph.
