CRRC examines Lathen as Transrapid test track

China wants to further develop magnetic levitation technology for high-speed trains and is looking into cooperating with European partners and revitalizing the former Transrapid test track in Lathen in the Emsland region. According to information from China.Table, the state-owned railway group CRRC has already made an inquiry to the operating company of the former test track in Lathen. CRRC has developed two of its own prototypes based on German Transrapid technology but does not have its own test track for long-term testing. In China, maglev trains are considered a pillar of the government's climate plans.

Under the direction of the state-owned railway company China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC), two Transrapid prototypes have been developed in recent years. One of the trains, named CRRC 600 and consisting of six elements, is a further development of the Transrapid TR08, manufactured by ThyssenKrupp at the time. It will not be able to travel faster than 600 kilometers per hour.
