The rail fastening systems are intended for a section of the planned high-speed line between the Guiyang and Nanning in southern China. Deliveries are scheduled to start in 2022, with the high-speed line planned to be taken into operation in 2023.
"We are very pleased that this order will continue our success story in China, which has been ongoing for over a decade," says Oliver Schuster, Vossloh AG's CEO. "This important order win fits seamlessly into our order trend, which has been very encouraging so far this year despite the Covid-19 pandemic, and clearly underlines the above average crisis resistance of our company and our entire industry.”
