CSR to bid for British emu contract

Written by admin

CSR Nanjing Puzhen Rolling Stock, China, has confirmed that it intends to bid for a contract to supply 40-120 emu vehicles for British operator London Midland. According to a notice issued in the Official Journal of the European Union last month, London Midland requires a fleet of 160km/h commuter emus formed into three or four-car trains, or a combination of both.

CSR is one of the bidders hoping to secure a contract to supply 202 dmu
vehicles to Britain, and it won a contract in March to supply 20
two-car Pacemaker dmus to Tunisian National Railways (SNCFT), which
will be delivered in 2011.
