Brief introduction of China Railway Electrification Bureau (Group) Co., Ltd.
China Railway Electrification Bureau (Group) Co., Ltd, known as EEB, was founded in 1958 with the first ever electrified railway–Baoji-Chengdu railway commenced on. It has experienced 56 fantastic years. EEB is one of the key members of China Railway Group Ltd., which is one of the world top 500 enterprises and brand names. It is also the backbone and fore runner of the electrified railway company in China.
During the 56 years since it was established, EEB has accumulatively constructed and put into operation more than 30,000km electrified railway, which approximately reaches 80% of the total length of electrified railway under operation in China. EEB has also constructed many high speed railways, such as Beijing-Tianjin, Beijing-Shanghai, Wuhan-Guangzhou, Harbin-Dalian and so on, accounting for around 70% of the total high speed railway in length in China. EEB plays a significant role and makes great contribution in making China the second top electrified railway country and the first of high speed railway in length in the world.
EEB is a technology intensive enterprise specializing in sci-tech research and development, design and consulting, construction, industrial production, test and inspection, procurement & supply, supervision, operation and maintenance as well as real estate development and financing investment. It has formed a complete industrial chain of electrified railway, and has become China’s base station of industrial production and technology innovation.
Devoting herself to the modernization of railway technology and taking the responsibility as her own to serve the country by industry, EEB always sticks to the development concept of science and technology innovation, constantly promotes technology research & innovation. Acting as an industry leader and fully taking advantage of her professionalism, EEB has played a key role in the process of railway electrification technology development in China, realized such sustainable development in the electrified railway as growing out of nothing and upgrading from normal speed to heavy haul, thus making significant contributions to large scale railway construction, speeding up of the existing railways, the development of high load transportation and high speed railway.
During the process of the absorption and innovation of new technology, EEB has formed comprehensive industrial advantages of normal speed and high speed railway traction power supply system, integrated with design, research, manufacturing, installation, and operation & maintenance; fully grasped high speed electrified railway’s design & construction technology system and integration management system; comprehensively mastered development & manufacture technologies of key products of high speed railway traction power system; built a technical platform of high speed railway traction power system with complete intellectual property rights in China; accumulated abundant experience and technology for promoting reconstruction of large scale existing electrified railway with high quality and efficiency; grasped professional technology of railway communication, signaling and disaster prevention systems as well as constructional technology of subgrade, bridge, tunnel, track work etc.
EEB is vigorously promoting the development strategy of “Focus on railway construction” and has become the main force and “national team” of domestic Urban Rail Transit construction. Being active in Urban Rail Transit construction, EEB has undertaken the subway and light rail construction for more than 20 cities over the country in the mode of Agency Construction Management (Agency CM), general contracting, electrical and mechanical (E&M) integration, professional contracting etc. EEB took the lead in Urban Rail Transit traction power system design and construction techniques and carried out various projects in E&M, communication, signaling, automatic control, civil work etc., by which it won a good reputation and set up brand image in the industry.
While developing the electrical & mechanical technology consisting such subsystems as traction power supply, electricity, communication and signaling, EEB accelerates the development of such business sectors as civil work, industrial and civil architecture, manufacturing, operation & maintenance and has completed the construction of civil works for Beijing-Shijiazhuang, Tianjin-Qinhuangdao and Zhengzhou-Xi'an high speed railways in which it achieved a historical breakthrough and leap. Some landmark buildings were built by EEB such as the dispatching building of the Ministry of Railways, reconstruction of Hankou railway station, Huzhou new railway station and Tangshan railway station, symbolizing a new level of production & business scale and technical management of building and architecture. EEB grows up rapidly in operation and maintenance business with a total length more than 10,000km, which makes it become an enterprise entrusted with the longest line for management & maintenance service in China. To promote real estate, we have successfully established more than 10 medium to large scale projects, with which it becomes our new mainstay of our company.
EEB actively implements the strategy of “going global” and successively completed the design, manufacture and construction work of subway or railway in Hong Kong, Iran, Belarus, Sri Lanka, Uzbekistan and many other regions and countries, where EEB won both domestic and overseas recognitions and compliments.
During the process of transformation and development of the enterprise, EEB made investment respectively in local infrastructure construction in subway projects of Nanjing-Ningtian intercity railway, Beijing Airport Line, Olympic Extension Line etc., and in other engineering projects as well through BT, BOT, PPT and CM modes, thus promoted the development of enterprise’s scaled operation and local economy.
EEB insists on establishing a brand image with construction concept of being “elaborative, meticulous, exquisite and delicate”. EEB has been granted with 2 National Golden Medals and 17 Silver Medals for Projects of excellent Quality, 12 Awards of Zhantianyou Civil Engineering, 13 Awards for Luban Engineering, 4 Medals of 100 year Classical and Qualified Projects on the 60th Anniversary of the Founding of P. R. China , 6 Prizes of Demonstration Project in "Nation-wide Municipal Golden Cup ", 2 Silver Medals for National Power Engineering, 2 Awards for Projects of China Best Installation Quality, 1 Godden Prize for Projects of China Steel Structure, 157 Provincial or Ministerial Awards for Best Quality Engineering, 5 National Science & Technology Progress Awards, 79 Awards for Projects of Provincial or Ministerial Science & Technology Progress, and 182 State Granted Patents.
