India has invited global bids to introduce magnetic levitation technology for Indian Railways with the aim of achieving a target speed of 350-500 km per hour.
New Delhi (Sputnik) – The Indian government plans to invest nearly $15 bln on this ambitious project over the next five years. The firm that bags this project will be required to design, build, operate and maintain the levitation train systems for both passenger and cargo transport.
This comes ahead of a crucial seminar of global ultra high-speed train manufacturers scheduled on September 2 in India. The requirements laid down by the Indian Railways in the formal invitation
of bids states that the system will be operated under a public-private partnership mode and that the trains must be capable of carrying passengers as well as cargo. The deadline for submission of bids is September 6, 2016.
© SPUTNIK/ ALEXEI DANICHEV Siemens Reveals New Engine for Russia's Maglev High-Speed Rail Project At present, Maglev—which is a transport system that uses magnetic levitation to suspend and propel vehicles with magnets without touching the ground—is the only operational levitation train system in the world. The Ministry of Railways has also proposed to set up a center for levitation train technologies to carry out research for further evolving the technology in India.
