China's CRRC Dalian Co., Ltd. has exported a batch of locomotives to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for local railway projects, the company said.

The internal combustion locomotives have been built based on the company's existing models and adjusted to adapt to the local environment with its high heat, strong winds and sandy air, the company noted.

Optimizations were made to increase the heat dissipation capacity of the microcomputer and the air filter, air conditioning and air cooling systems as well as other components to ensure normal operations at a temperature of 50 degrees Celsius.

The company has also sent a professional maintenance and support team to the UAE for the locomotive's field tests and further usage.

CRRC Dalian is an affiliated company under China's top train manufacturer CRRC Corporation. It develops, produces and exports diesel and electric locomotives as well as urban rail cars.
