China-Belarus No. 2 electric freight train has obtained the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) vehicle safety standard certification, CRRC Corporation said Thursday.
It is the first time for a Chinese high-power AC drive electric locomotive to be allowed to enter the Eurasian railway market, the company said.
The train was made by CRRC Datong, a branch of CRRC Corporation.
"The EEU certification will enable the China-Belarus No. 2 electric freight train to run in member countries of the EEU, including Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan," said Zhao Mingyuan, chief engineer of CRRC Datong.
The certification tested a total of 52 machine parts, 348 functions, the train's radiation and ecological safety as well as electromagnetic compatibility, according to Zhao.
The China-Belarus No. 2 electric freight train is characterized by its reliable technology, energy conservation, environmental protection and intelligent features.
