09-14-2011 16:27 BJT

CHANGSHA, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- A major Chinese electric locomotive manufacturer, CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Co., Ltd., won a bid to export 40 bullet train locomotives to the country of Georgia.

The company, based in the city of Zhuzhou in central China's Hunan Province, is expected to deliver the locomotives and accessories to Georgia in September 2012, Zhu Jianfei, the company's spokesperson, said on Tuesday.

The locomotives will be used in bullet trains travelling at a speed of 120 kilometers per hour between Georgian cities in the mountainous Caucasus region, Zhu said.

Due to the complicated terrain and climate of the Caucasus, the locomotives will feature technology used in the locomotives of subway and light rail trains, he said.

Zhu said winning the bid is a significant step for China's high-tech railway products in tapping markets in the Caucasus region as well as markets among members of the Commonwealth of Independent States and European countries.
