The entire series of Electric Multiple Units (EMU) or trains for the Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Rail (KCJB) project, totaling 11 units, have been completed in production at CRRC Sifang, Qingdao, Shandong Province, China in early April. Not only EMU, previously one unit of the Comprehensive Inspection Train (CIT) or inspection train has also been completed. The completion of the production process for the CR400AF type EMU series adds to the achievement of the KCJB (Kereta Cepat Jakarta-Bandung) throughout 2022.
The EMU and CIT series are targeted to arrive in Indonesia in the second semester of 2022. EMU is a series of high-speed trains with advanced specifications and is able to monitor hazards such as earthquakes, floods, to foreign object attacks, and is fire resistant.
The security system installed in the KCJB EMU series will be supported by various security instruments such as the Dispatching Monitoring Center, threat detection sensors along the KCJB route, and the Disaster Monitoring Terminal in Tegalluar as the center for disaster data management. In addition, there are also direct observation instruments in the field with CCTV connected to the KCJB command center to send visual information.
KCJB’s operations are supported by CTSC 3/GSM-R network technology and fiber optics that have been proven globally in terms of rail safety, especially high-speed trains. Then, there are also Internal and External Lighting Protection Systems in KCJB construction.
“The KCJB security system is not only installed in the EMU circuit. Starting from Tegalluar, and along the KCJB route, we have prepared various high-level security systems so that KCJB can run well and optimally,” said the President Director of PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia China (KCIC) Dwiyana Slamet Riyadi.
