Recently, CRRC Dalian has received an additional order for 10 diesel locomotives from KiwiRail of New Zealand. This is the 5th locomotive order following the previous four orders for 63 locomotives, bringing the total locomotive export of CRRC Dalian to New Zealand to 73 units, which account for about 1/3 of the total number of locomotives of KiwiRail. It was the outstanding performance of the previous 63 locomotives that laid a good foundation for the signing of the 5th order.
The newly signed 10 locomotives will build on the mature design and concepts of the previous generation, and leverage the experiences accumulated in the onsite technical support services and the user application habits of the previous locomotives. More exploration and study will be done to further optimize and improve the reliability design and maintenance convenience design, and further optimize the locomotive processes and production to provide high quality products and services.
During the negotiation, the company overcame the impact of COVID-19 and spent much effort in planning. Through the innovative “cloud negotiation” and collaboration, the company finally won the recognition of the customer.
