Kawasaki Heavy to develop high-speed train


Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd said Thursday it will start development of a new high-speed train that can travel up to 350 kilometers per hour. Kawasaki Heavy is the first Japanese manufacturer to develop a high-speed train for the global market, the company said.


The company expects to complete the development of the efSET train by March 2010.


The new train is designed to meet potential demand at a time when some 10,000 kilometers of high-speed track are expected to be built across the globe over the next 20 years.


The company will use technologies acquired through experience in designing Shinkansen bullet trains to improve comfort and reduce the effects on the environment in an effort to compete with major European manufacturers.
