- This export is an important milestone for China's rail transit equipment to develop markets in developed countries in Europe and America
On July 26, 2022, CRRC Tangshan Company's export of Porto Metro in Portugal rolled off the line in Tangshan and will carry out a train test, marking the countdown to the official delivery of China's export to the EU urban rail project.
CRRC Tangshan will produce 18 subway trains totaling 72 (4 cars each) for Porto Metro Company, and provide 5-year maintenance services.
According to the characteristics of Porto's existing tracks and infrastructure, CRRC Tangshan has newly designed the wheel tread and car body structure, which can run on most of Porto's subway lines.

The train is equipped with a passenger counting system, which sends the passenger flow information to the control center in real time to achieve precise operation. The train is also equipped with an auxiliary driving function to guide drivers to drive economically and save energy.Editor/Ma Xue
