The delivery of the train was marked by Completion of Manufacturing and First Delivery of the EMU Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Rail Project (KCJB) ceremony which was broadcast online.

"This inaugural delivery of EMU and CIT will mark the first history of sending EMU high-speed trains from China to overseas," said KCIC President Director Dwiyana Slamet Riyadi in the event.

He said the delivery was an important step in the effort to complete the KCJB project. The train was produced by CRRC Sifang, Qingdao, Shandong Province, China.

A total of 11 train series have been completed in early April this year. Not only EMU, previously one unit of the Comprehensive Inspection Train (CIT) or inspection train has also been completed. Before being sent to Indonesia, these 12 train series have passed static and dynamic tests.

He conveyed that the progress of the KCJB project development currently reached 85 percent. "The progress has reached 85 percent, there are still some works in Tunnel, pre loading, track laying and station completion," said Riyadi.

Riyadi said that KCJB is a symbol of two state leaders friendship, President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) and President Xi Jinping, to present reliable, comfortable and modern future connectivity. EMU is a series of high-speed trains with advanced specifications and is able to monitor hazards such as earthquakes, floods, foreign object attacks, and fire resistance.

The KCJB EMU and CIT series are also designed according to the geological conditions on the island of Java. It includes advanced technology in the form of disaster monitoring so that this train is not only able to run quickly, but also has a very high level of security and comfort.

The security system installed in the KCJB EMU series, he said, 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 Tegal Luar 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. He hopes that the presence of KCJB can improve connectivity between Jakarta, Bandung and surrounding areas.

"This project is expected to make connectivity faster and become an alternative mode of transportation that is environmentally friendly," he said.
