Diesel locomotives for the rail transit equipment industry

CRRC Ziyang is dedicated to diesel locomotive research and development (R&D) and manufacturing. It has an annual manufacturing capacity of 300 units of various types of locomotives, including mainline diesel, shunting diesel between 300hp and 6,500hp, as well as standard gauge (1,435mm), narrow-gauge (1,000mm; 1,067mm) and broad gauge (1,520mm; 1,676mm) with axle load from 10t to 25t.

We can meet all requirements of the rail transit market with an extensive range of power, axle load and configurations of diesel locomotives.

Electric locomotive rail equipment

CRRC Ziyang has manufactured HXD1, HXD1B and HXD1C electric locomotives according to modularisation, standardisation and serialisation requirements, with an annual capacity of 200 units of various electric locomotives.

New-energy locomotives for railway transport

CRRC Ziyang has been focusing on the development of diesel locomotives with the capacity for multiple series and various types of units. We are committed to the development of new energy rail transit equipment, establishing different power levels of hybrid locomotive platforms.

The company has developed CKD6E5000 hybrid locomotive, HXN6 hybrid locomotive, pure battery rail car and new energy hanging monorail train.

Diesel multiple unit (DMU) railway cars

With extensive experience in exported locomotive products, CRRC Ziyang has developed its own diesel multiple unit (DMU) technology while considering specific environmental and geographic requirements of customers worldwide.

The inter-city DMU is suitable for high-temperature, heavy wind, sand, salt mist and high humidity environments with speeds ranging from 80km/h to 120km/h. With a different power range, these DMUs have been demonstrated as fast, comfortable and reliable with high availability. They are suitable for our customers in Africa and South-East Asia.

Locomotive maintenance, refurbishment and reconstruction

CRRC Ziyang also provides various services in addition to the sales of locomotives. These include various maintenance services such as daily maintenance, auxiliary repair, minor or medium repair, overhaul, and refurbishment and reconstruction for domestic and foreign clients.

Crankshaft manufacturing for power equipment

CRRC Ziyang manufactures Chinese national standard crankshafts with a base for large and medium-sized continuous grain-flow forged steel crankshaft export. A total of 3,000 crankshafts are manufactured every year, occupying 50% of the domestic market share in marine engine crankshafts.

Our products and services have been provided to large international companies such as MAN and Hyundai among others.

Integrated power plant and solid waste treatment

CRRC Ziyang has expanded into the EPC of integrated power plants, realising the entire contracting process. This includes initial project planning, infrastructure site selection, manufacture and installation of equipment, as well as on-grid adjustment and testing with customer support for resource utilisation.

In addition, we have expanded our solid waste energy conversion projects with the adoption of advanced technology. Compared to traditional solid waste treatment, our technology offers hazard-free treatment, minimisation and recycling of solid waste treatment without environmental pollution.

CRRC Ziyang is a subsidiary of CRRC Corporation Limited and the only newly built diesel locomotive research and development enterprise since the founding of the People’s Republic of China.


HD100B DMU is AC-DC electric transmission centralized power DMU consisting of 2 motor cars and 6 trailer cars with a total person capacity of 432, which is used for main line freight transportation on narrow-gauge railway.
