Jakarta-Bandung High-Speed Train Compared to Japan's Shinkansen

24 May 2023 21:57 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Jakarta-Bandung high-speed train (KCJB) underwent another hot sliding test on May 19, 2023, in Tegalluar, Bandung Regency, West Java. The trial was conducted by PT Kereta Api Indonesia China (KCIC) to test how fast the KCIC 400 AF Electrical Multiple Unit (EMU) circuits go to Halim Station in Jakarta.

KCIC is the joint venture of the Indonesian and Chinese consortium responsible for the project.

The hot sliding test was also aimed at confirming the readiness of the entire Overhead Catenary System (OCS) network to operate in August 2023.

The train will travel 142.3 kilometers from Jakarta to Bandung or vice versa with four stopping stations, namely Halim, Karawang, Walini, and Tegalluar. The ticket price is set at around Rp237,824 - Rp300,000 for second-class seats.

Besides Indonesia, Japan also has a fast train called Shinkansen. As quoted from japanesetrain.com, the first line of the world's renowned bullet train was from Tokyo to Osaka on October 1, 1964.

Comparing the speed of Indonesia’s KCJB and Japan’s Shinkansen

According to kcic.co.id, the Indonesian first fast train uses the latest generation of trains made in China, CR400AF by CRRC Qingdao Sifang. It is powered by electricity with the required power of 9750 kW for each series of eight cars.

The Jakarta-Bandung high-speed train is designed with a speed of 420 kilometers per hour and an operational speed of 350 kilometers per hour. In other words, the 142.3-kilometer distance between Jakarta and Bandung can be covered in only 35 minutes for a direct trip and 46 minutes for a trip with stops at each station.

Meanwhile, the Shinkansen bullet train has speeds starting at 300 kilometers per hour. The fastest series, the L0 series, has a speed of up to 603 kilometers per hour or 375 miles per hour. But the maximum speed to operate is only 500 kilometers per hour or 310 mph.

It has six types of trains namely Nozomi, Hikari, Mizuho, Kodama, Hayabusa, and Sakura. Starting in 2020, Japan has used the Shinkansen N700S model train equipped with a lithium-ion battery self-propulsion system.
