BEIJING - A Chinese locomotive maker announced on Monday it has exported two electric locomotives to Belarus, marking the first time China-made freight locomotives have been exported to Europe.

Datong Electric Locomotive Co Ltd (DEC), a subsidiary of China North Locomotive and Rolling Corp Ltd, said the event also represented the first export of China's high-power electric locomotives overseas.

In 2010, DEC won a bid to provide 12 electric locomotives to Belarus. They are all set to be delivered this year. Designed to reach a speed of 120 km per hour, the locomotives will be used for freight transportation.
