The Philippines returned 48 light rail vehicles overweight


What is the truth? Have to say that the Philippines is simply to buy the subway as a play, in the car to the Philippines one after another to deliver the train, the Philippines to give a high degree of product recognition, did not make the slightest doubt on the car Dalian, how suddenly delivered finished, the Philippines Party complain so much?

On February 3, the Philippine Senate official website released a message that the Philippines demanded that China Locomotive Dalian Locomotive Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as China Car Dalian) refund its 3.8 billion pesos (approximately RMB 460 million) at Manila Metro Line 3 (MRT3) 48 light rail passenger car payment At the same time, the Philippine side will also deliver all these locomotives and vehicles that have already been delivered to Dalian Zhongcar, saying it wants to include the manufacturer's car Dalian in the blacklist for future government procurement.

Manila Light Rail
The MRT3 of 48 light rail vehicles were purchased by the Philippines from Dalian Car Company. As for the reasons for the return, the Ministry of Transportation of the Philippines said that the vehicle provided by the car Dalian Vehicle has weighed 49.7 tons, exceeding the stipulated maximum limit of 46.3 tons. In addition, The car and the Manila Light Rail Line 3 maintenance facilities and signal system compatibility is also a problem.

Vehicle overweight and signaling system compatibility issues, this is an excuse to find ways to return China Light Rail, the Philippines. What is the truth? Have to say that the Philippines is simply to buy the subway as a play, in the car to the Philippines one after another to deliver the train, the Philippines to give a high degree of product recognition, did not make the slightest doubt on the car Dalian, how suddenly delivered finished, the Philippines Party complain so much?


Wang Yaxing, a professor and doctoral tutor at Renmin University of China, on the reasons for the return described by the Philippines He believes that the problem of vehicle overweight and compatibility with signal systems is not a serious quality issue in orbit products. In international trade disputes, the above problems are complete Priority can be obtained through the after-sales service of Dalian Car in China, such as the replacement of parts and components, continued debugging of the system and other measures, and finally meeting the requirements of the Philippine side. However, the Philippine side directly requests the return and refund of the goods and the method is too simple and crude. Dalian car has the right to safeguard its legitimate interests.

In the successive delivery of the train, the real reason for the serious decline of MRT3 capacity in Dalian, a medium-sized car manufacturer, is that the Philippine rail transit system has been opened for about 20 years and has been in disrepair. Dumped to the Chinese products. Furthermore, the government of the Philippines and its domestic private partners are overwhelmed with each other and each wants to split their interests. This makes the efficiency of trains lagging behind.

After obtaining the order in Dalian Car, Japan at that time had a kicker and directly allocated 2.8 billion yuan to help the Philippines to repair other subways. Could this be so? The newly elected Philippines saw Japan so showy that it wanted to link up with China Order to Japan, the contract can be signed, can not return without any problem, so the Philippines to find the vehicle overweight and signaling system compatibility of these trivial excuse, in order to force China to return. Here, Xiao Bian just speculation, does not represent electronic engineering website site remarks. After all, three tons of vehicles did not increase prior communication, more than twenty vehicles are not equipped with the signal system according to map construction. To know that the train is too heavy will consume more energy, economic benefits will be greatly reduced; the domestic subway vehicles are lightweight aluminum alloy material, a car is only about 35 tons. Dalian in these cars should be well reviewed. Can not be self-righteous.

In recent years, China's car in the overseas market orders delivery, frequent setbacks. In early 2014, China South Locomotive and China North Locomotive were successively punished by Australia and New Zealand for rolling stock composite roof tiles. North and South cars replaced some of the components for this purpose. In July 2016, Singapore's Straits Times reported that more than 20 vehicles were deployed in China Singapore subway train manufactured was recalled for structural defects.

A recent overseas dispute was in 2017, South Africa's media "NEW24" reported in early 2017 that the South African Parliamentary Portfolio Committee is in the process of negotiating with Transnet a 1064 locomotive Large-scale bidding, whether to follow the South African public procurement manufacturing "localization" policy investigation. Reported that the South African government's "localization" policy requires at least 65% of the locomotives to be produced locally in South Africa, while the voices of doubt claimed that the locomotives of China's locomotives were not locally produced in South Africa but rather entered the South African market through imports. The survey is still underway.

China subsequently confirmed the incident in response to the car and said it was deeply saddened. It seems that the car in Dalian while sad, how to better deal with trade disputes among countries has become an urgent solution.
