Alstom secures €150m contract to supply Coradia Lint trains to Germany

Alstom has secured a more than €150m contract to supply 41 Coradia Lint regional trains to public transport operator Transdev.

Alstom has secured a contract worth more than €150m to supply 41 Coradia Lint regional trains to public transport operator Transdev.

The trains will be operated by Bayerische Regiobahn, a subsidiary of Transdev in Bavaria, Germany.

According to initial plans, the trains will run on the lines from Augsburg to Weilheim, Schongau, Ingolstadt, Eichstätt and Langenneufnach.

Alstom Germany and Austria managing director Jörg Nikutta said: “This order by Transdev is another great milestone in the history of our proven and popular Coradia Lint. It is symbolic that the 1,000th Coradia Lint will be operated by the very same transport company that operated the first Coradia Lint back in November 2000.

“This order by Transdev is another great milestone in the history of our proven and popular Coradia Lint.”

“This fortunate coincidence illustrates the train’s past and current performance and how the product meets the expectations of our customers and their passengers.”

Alstom will build the Coradia Lint trains at its site in Salzgitter, Lower Saxony.

Capable of operating at a maximum speed of 140km/h, the vehicles are powered by two 390kW engines.

Overall, the two-car trains will have 125 seats and a separate area to store bicycles.

The trains will also provide a higher level of comfort to passengers with reduced mobility compared to the existing units. The deliveries of the trains are scheduled for September 2022.

Alstom’s Coradia Lint trains, which are part of its Coradia range of modular trains, operate in more than 30 networks across Europe and Canada.

To date, the company has delivered more than 2,800 Coradia trains, which includes 2,300 that are currently in service.
