  • Order value more than €20 million
  • Deliveries mainly expected in the second half of 2024

Vossloh has further strengthened its excellent market position in China. The Chinese subsidiary Vossloh Fastening Systems China Co. Ltd. was again commissioned to supply rail fastening systems for a section of a high-speed line currently under construction in China. The line will connect the metropolis of Jinan, capital of the eastern Chinese province of Shandong, with the major city of Binzhou, some 120 kilometers to the northeast. In between are four other stations that will be newly built, including one at Jinan Yaoqiang International Airport.

The order has a sales volume equivalent to more than €20 million. Deliveries of the rail fastening systems are mainly scheduled for the second half of 2024.
