Giantlok laid the groundwork of top flame-retardant standard for rail transport cable management in China

Case Background

CRRC Co., Ltd, a global leader of rail transit equipment from China has been delivering superior service of development, manufacturing and maintenance of top quality rolling stocks for decades. CRRC boasts of its world-class product and technical standards paving the railway networking in between cities one after another

Business Challenges

China’s high speed rail network spans over a vast territory and experiences complex geological environment, and various climatic conditions. The rapid urbanization and unique network conditions of China’s high speed rail make higher demands on the high speed rail technology system. Standardization is definitely one of the most crucial facets in developing an efficient, competitive and reliable rail system. A rolling stock failure may cause delays and disruptions to transport services or even result in catastrophic derailment accidents.

When Giantlok first engaged with CRRC and initiated the project back in 2010, there was no cable management specific standard under railway category in China. It was imperative that the cable management solution needed to be certified both on functionality and reliability aspects. In particular, vigorous inspection of equipment under extreme temperature to sustain and protect threshold was the key. On top of that, the project needed to be completed within a firm timeframe that would provide a seamless flow of services to passengers when the new rolling stocks open to traffic.
