Teleste was selected to provide its on–board solution for 31 Alstom’s Coradia Stream trains for FerrovieNord which manages the railway network in the region of Lombardy, Italy.
With an option for an additional 30 trains, the now–agreed deliveries will begin in 2021, and the collaboration will continue between Teleste and Alstom under a framework agreement signed in 2017 to provide on-board systems for Alstom’s trains.
“We are pleased to continue advancing smooth and safe public mobility in Italy together with Alstom and their Coradia Stream train platform. Being deployed in several public transport networks in the country, we are confident that our solution will provide the passengers in Lombardy with an enjoyable travel experience while also meeting the needs of the railway operator,” said Jarkko Vehkala, Head of the Rolling Stock Manufacturers business line at Teleste.
The on–board solution to be developed and deployed to the Coradia Stream trains will include the company’s passenger information systems (PIS), on–board video surveillance, intercommunication and public address systems as well as the latest-generation full–colour RGB LED information displays providing excellent visibility for passenger information and other types of content such as advertisements.
The entire on–board solution is especially designed for easier, safer, and more entertaining travelling, and it supports seamless integration and management of the systems also as part of larger public transport infrastructures.
