CSR announced that its high-end electric multiple units (EMUs) exported to Malaysia have officially started running in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday. The EMUs, or modern rail transport vehicles, are independently made by CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Co. Each set consists of six carriages, and can travel at a maximum speed of 140 km per hour. The maximum passenger load for each set can reach 1,200 persons. A total of 228 units made by the Chinese company were put into use in Kuala Lumpur. In 2010, CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Co. agreed on a 4-billion-yuan (591.9 million U.S. dollars, based on the exchange rate that time) deal with the Transport Ministry of Malaysia to supply rail vehicles, which are required to be delivered by May 2012.
