Frontsystem HEMU 400

Front End System Including Nose Flaps HEMU 400, Korea:

Thrill of speed: Presently, the HEMU 400 undergoes thorough tests in South Korea. On the test track the highspeed train is supposed to reach more than 400 km/h. The intended series train, the next generation KTX, is planned to go into service in 2015, operating at a speed of more than 350 km/h.

A multiple stage energy absorption concept ensures highest safety: Damper and deformation tube in the coupler as well as additional frame-mounted deformation elements meet all the requirements of the EN 15227.
