Maglev technology avoids friction, allowing the train to "float" with the help of two sets of magnets, one that repels and leviates the train up off the track, and one that pushs and moves the train.
"We look forward to working with (Northeast) Maglev in the very near future to ensure sure that we are the first (organization) to work with them in employing individuals throughout the city in their transportation system," she said.
The maglev production line in Cagayan is penciled to roll out light rail vehicles, as well as medium- and high-speed trains that can travel at 200 km to 400 km per hour.
Ceza Administrator and CEO Raul Lambino said the initial project cost would be used for the research and development, as well as the production of the 'cutting-edge, low-magnetic radiation, zero-derailment risk' maglev trains.
In a statement, Lambino said the initial project cost is estimated at $1-billion for the R&D and production models of the cutting-edge, low-magnetic radiation, zero-derailment risk Maglev trains that run on low noise and without friction and vibration.
Although the correlation analysis of the dynamic characteristics was carried out for different maglev models, single iron suspension models were the most commonly used.
It is a superconducting maglev system that has the smallest cross-section and uses the smallest amount of permanent magnet materials.
