RTSA NZ Event – Presentation on Chinese Railway Technology Developments
December 2, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm UTC+12Free
China has embarked on an impressive programme of railway development in recent decades, including building 25000 km of high speed rail lines in the past 10 years to create the world’s largest high speed network. While early Chinese high speed lines utilised technology transfer programmes with overseas suppliers, increasingly Chinese designed systems and equipment are being developed and implemented.
RTSA New Zealand is delighted to host a joint delegation from the China Academy of Engineering (CAE) and the China Academy of Railway Sciences (CARS) on 2nd December. Professor He Huawu, Vice President of CAE and formerly Chief Engineer of the China Railway Corporation will make a presentation on recent Chinese Railway Technology Developments.
Professor He Huawu is one of the chief designers of Chinese high speed technologies and has dedicated his career to the roll-out of high speed railway technologies. He has been engaged in railway transportation, engineering as well as R&D and the application of high speed technologies for many years. He led over one hundred projects to design, build, test and integrate new trunk railway lines and terminals and achieved significant accomplishments in critical technologies for high speed railway regularity and stability. He has also led the development and application of critical equipment, theories and technologies for integrated transport hubs and establishment of the technical standards for the Chinese high speed railway system.
