Major order

17.09.2009

The Schaffner Group (SIX Swiss Exchange: SAHN) will supply, in a first tranche to be delivered by mid-2010, transformers and reactors valued in the upper single-digit millions for new high-speed trains currently under construction for the Chinese National Railway.

The major order for delivery of components for the Chinese National Railway's new high-tech trains reconfirms the Schaffner Group's standing as a leading supplier of magnetic components to the international rail technology sector. "This major order will significantly strengthen Schaffner's position in what is today the world's biggest market for high-speed trains," explained Alexander Hagemann, Chief Executive Officer of the Schaffner Group. Schaffner will supply transformers and reactors to Siemens, which is delivering components such as the electronics equipment and undercarriages for the high-speed trains being constructed in China with local Chinese partners.

China commissioned the construction of 100 modern high-speed trains in the first quarter of 2009. The high-tech trains being built in China have a top speed of 350 km/h, comprise 16 coaches totaling around 400 meters in length, and will have the capacity to carry over 1,000 passengers. They are scheduled to go into operation in 2010 on the new 1300 km track running between Beijing and Shanghai, and will cover the distance in four hours.
