On 12 Jan. 2016, CRRC overseas subsidiary won a $10 million order from London Underground.

Delkor Rail, an overseas subsidiary of CRRC Zhuzhou Institute Co., Ltd., has signed a long-term supply contract with Transport for London for the supply $10 million of underground-train parts.

Delkor Rail, a leading supplier of quality noise- and vibration-attenuation products and solutions, is fully owned by CRRC Zhuzhou Institute Co., Ltd.

Its technical expertise and quality components have been utilized in construction projects in countries and regions including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Singapore and Hong Kong.

The company has also been actively exploring the European and American markets in recent years.

The order from Transport for London will help expand the company's presence in the United Kingdom and open doors to other European markets.

Generically referred to as "the Tube", the London Underground, which opened in 1863, is the world's oldest underground railway system and carries more than 1 billion passengers a year.

The London transport department has come out with several renovation plans for its subway lines. Most of the railway tracks and facilities are aging and need upgraded.
