With a top speed of 169 km/h, Transport System Bögl has set a new record for medium-low-speed maglev trains. After the successful commissioning of the third vehicle section in January, the TSB thus reached another milestone last month on the 3.5 km long demonstration line in Chengdu. Decision-makers and technical experts alike were convinced of the system’s capabilities thanks to the outstanding cooperation between Max Bögl and its Chinese partner Xinzhu. Another important step towards a first application line in China as well as in Germany.
Over the next few years, the Chinese government plans to optimise local public transport using state-of-the-art technologies. For Max Bögl, this is a great opportunity to realize magnet train projects. The aim of the more than 3.5 km long demonstration line in Chengdu is to convince Chinese customers of the technology and its efficiency and to provide the necessary evidence for approval in China.
