Alstom has signed a contract with Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen (LNVG) for the delivery of 34 Coradia Stream high-capacity double-decker EMU trains in Germany.

Alstom has signed a contract with Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen (LNVG) for the delivery of 34 Coradia Stream high-capacity double-decker EMU trains in Germany.

The total value of the contract is approximately €760m.

The new double-decker trains will each include four vehicle units, two centre cars and two driving cars.

In addition, 18 more centre cars will be delivered for the extension of the trains up to six units, based on passenger capacity.

The complete order adds up to 68 driving trailers and 86 middle coaches.

Apart from the delivery of the double-decker trains, the contract also covers the maintenance of the fleet for 30 years, including an assurance for spare parts at all times.

Alstom DACH region president Müslüm Yakisan said: “I am very pleased about the decision of the State of Lower Saxony and LNVG to set an example for sustainable mobility and climate protection with our Coradia Stream. Our modern double-decker train for LNVG is an ideal combination of innovation and passenger comfort. We are building our own service centre especially for this order and will thus set an example with regard to environmental protection and energy efficiency.”

In December 2024, the trains will commence operations in Expresskreuz Bremen/Niedersachsen (EBN), linking Bremen, Hanover, Norddeich-Mole, Oldenburg, Wilhelmshaven, Osnabrück and Bremerhaven.

These trains will feature a modular design and adjustable seating capacities.

The Coradia Stream provides ramp-free access in the middle carriages, enabling comfortable access for commuters with reduced mobility.

The trains are also equipped with individual customer solutions such as multi-generation zones, expandable bicycle compartments, and more.

Alstom recently signed a purchase agreement for the acquisition of Dutch rolling stock maintenance services provider Shunter.

Alstom stated that the transaction will support Alstom’s position in the Benelux maintenance market by merging both firms’ competences, solutions and products.
