“We are delighted to be able to contribute to intensifying Florence’s transport system with the construction of more than 11 kilometres of tramway line in addition to what has already been achieved for Line 2”.

The tramline work will be carried out by Alstom’s System and Infrastructure team (based in Rome), alongside component design at Alstom’s Valmadrera site.

This project extends Alstom’s 160-year manufacturing presence across Italy. This includes the introduction of hydrogen trains to Puglia, replacing diesel fleets.
