CRRC Datong Co -- based in Datong city in Shanxi province -- completed assembly and testing of its first locomotive for the Fuxing high-speed train on Sept 30, officials said.
The event marked that Datong rail transit equipment industry has joined the manufacturing of Fuxing high-speed trains.
The green FXD1J-type electric locomotive -- which is the core platform for the control and traction of the Fuxing high-speed train -- is suitable for all general-speed electrified railways.
Officials said it will further promote the upgrading of China's railway technology and equipment.
As one of manufacturers, CRRC Datong Co -- along with the subsidiaries of CRRC, a rail transit equipment supplier and related institutions -- helps design and produce the locomotive.
In addition to the Hexie bullet train electric locomotive products, the company has to date been involved in two series of products for Fuxing high-speed train, covering the railway passenger and cargo transportation sectors.
