On the afternoon of October 28, local time, China and Thailand signed an order for the Fuxing high-speed rail train in Bangkok. The Fuxing high-speed train introduced by Thailand this time is based on the CR300 Fuxing, designed for high-speed trains with a maximum speed of 250km/h, and will be used for the operation of the China-Thailand high-speed railway in the future.
There are 6 sets of trains ordered this time. At the signing ceremony, Thai Prime Minister Prayut personally attended the ceremony.
In addition to ordering trains, the cooperation agreement involves the China-Thailand high-speed rail signal system, power systems, personnel training and infrastructure related cooperation matters. The high-speed rail cooperation between China and Thailand is not only the output of vehicle equipment, but also the output of China’s high-speed railway technology system and Chinese standards.
It is reported that the China-Thailand high-speed railway will fully adopt the CTCS2+GSM-R signal system of China’s high-speed railways, while applying mature China’s high-speed railway four-electric integration technology. From the capital of Bangkok to the important town of Nakhon Ratchasima on the Northeast Plateau, the construction of the first phase of the Thailand section of the China-Thailand high-speed rail with a total length of about 250.77 kilometers will all adopt Chinese high-speed rail technology, and the Chinese side will carry out technical export and personnel training to Thailand before proceeding construction. The first phase of the project is divided into four bid sections, of which the first bid section and the second bid section that were started first are mainly used for personnel training and other tasks.
