China has exported five diesel locomotives to Angola marking the country's first export to the African country, Chinese state media reported on Tuesday.
The engines were made by Dalian Locomotive, a subsidiary of China North Locomotive and Rolling Corp. Ltd. (CNR), the nation's second-largest train maker.
Angola, which used to import locomotives from the United States, will buy 15 diesel locomotives from CNR Dalian as per an agreement signed last year.
Taking full consideration of the local environment and climate, CNR Dalian has made special designs for the exports, including large shutters, to prolong the equipment service life and ensure safe operation, the company said.
