Dinghan passes first article inspection by DB for CO2 air conditioning system

For a year Dinghan has been working on new CO2 air conditioning systems and auxiliary power converters for the modernisation of DB's double-deck coaches. Now the first article inspection (FAI) has been successfully completed. Since it is currently impossible for the project team to travel from Germany to China, the inspection was done in a purely virtual form (see photo on the left) for the first time.

The new CO2 air conditioning systems will now be brought to Kassel and tested there together with the new auxiliary power converters. After installation in the vehicle, tests will then be carried out in the DB climate chamber.
