China's ambition to send people moving at an increasingly fast pace is becoming a reality with the first test of a prototype maglev in Shanghai.
Test run of magnetic boat.
In the first test run, the prototype of the magnetic levitation train, developed by Tsingtao Railway Co., a subsidiary of China Railway Corporation (CRRC), completed the operation of the straight section, crab and uphill. The highest speed of this test reached a speed of 600km / h, according to Xinhua News Agency.
The scene from the test track on June 21 showed the train rolling leisurely at Gia Dinh campus of Tongji University on the outskirts of Shanghai.
Testing of buffer ships from 600km / h in China.
The project of a 600km / h ship was started again in 2016, when the CRRC received help from the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology. If all goes according to plan, the full magnetic levitation trains will be tested and removed from the production line by 2021.
Magnetic boat is rated as safe, reliable, with low noise and vibration. Its capacity to transport passengers is also quite large, punctual, and can maintain low costs.
By comparison, China's fastest conventional high-speed train at this time has a maximum operating speed of 400km / h, while the submarine train route connecting Pudong International Airport in Shanghai and Longyang Station operates. Maximum speed of up to 431km / h. The usual flight speed of passenger airplanes is approximately 880 to 926km / h.

The train carriage ran on June 21.
Although the 600km / h buffer ship project seems to be an ambitious goal, in fact, this is a speed limit that this type of ship is capable of achieving. In April 2015, Japan broke a speed record with a maglev at 603km / h.
However, it is in the test. The commercial operation of such trains is still a long way off, because of the infrastructure costs of long-distance buffer rails construction, not to mention issues. safe.
Magnetic boats are instead of directly powered by fossil fuel, they are powered by magnets and currents, by the ability to glide on rails. The entire process is raised, driven and pushed by magnetic or electromagnetic forces. This type of transportation with high speed and friendly environment that advanced countries are trying to towards.
