Its research and development started five years ago and has involved over 30 universities and colleges, research institutions and enterprises, making major breakthroughs in engineering technologies, including system integration, power supply and communication, according to CRRC Qingdao Sifang Co, a subsidiary of CRRC.

Ding Sansan, deputy chief engineer of CRRC Qingdao Sifang Co, said propelled forward by powerful electromagnets, the high-speed maglev train hovers above the track and runs without friction.

It features many technological advantages, such as high-speed travelling, easy maintenance, environmental friendliness and a safer and more comfortable environment for passengers, Ding added.

China has developed five 600 km/h high-speed maglev trains and their performance in testing lines is going well, CRRC Qingdao Sifang Co said.
