Alstom signed a EUR 150 million contract to supply 41 Coradia Lint regional trains to Transdev for operation in German region of Bavaria. The trains will be operated by Transdev subsidiary Bayerische Regiobahn GmbH (BRB) on the lines from Augsburg to Weilheim, Schongau, Ingolstadt, Eichstätt and Langenneufnach.
The trains, which will be built at Alstom’s site in Salzgitter, Lower Saxony, will be delivered by September 2022.
The two-car trains can seat a total of 125 passengers and include a spacious area for the easy storage of bicycles. The trains boast an even higher level of comfort compared than the currently used trains and, by addressing the needs of people with limited mobility, the ability to offer all passengers travel with a minimum of constraints.
The modern and environmentally friendly vehicles are powered by two 390 kW engines and reach a maximum operating speed of 140 km/h.
Thanks to this new contract, Alstom will be able to celebrate the production and delivery of the 1,000th Coradia Lint regional train.
