Wider windows with increased luminosity and a sense of greater space and comfort are among the benefits of new trains ordered for the Lombardy region in Italy.
ALSTOM has signed a contract with FERROVIENORD for the supply of 20 regional trains intended for the regional railway service of the Region of Lombardy for a total value of €125 million.
This is the second contract within a framework agreement signed in November 2019 with FNM S.p.A. The trains will be delivered from June 2023 onwards.
The train ordered by FERROVIENORD, named “Donizetti” by the customer, belongs to Alstom’s Coradia Stream range of trains. The single-deck electric trains each have four traction motors and a maximum speed of 160 km/h.
They represent the latest generation of a model that is already in commercial service in ten Italian regions, and are produced in conformity with the Technical Specification for Interoperability (TSI).
“We are, as always, very proud to be working with our trusted partners FNM and FERROVIENORD to provide modern, comfortable and sustainable regional transportation in Italy,” said Alstom Italy managing director Michele Viale.
“In the last 10 years, Alstom has delivered 54 regional trains for Lombardy. The new generation of Coradia Stream represents the best solution for meeting the increasing needs of both the region’s travellers and the operator.”
Coradia Stream can be easily adapted for different types of service. The interior and seating arrangements can be modified to suit diverse needs, for example with more seats on longer routes or optimised standing space for shorter journeys.
The modular interiors can be adapted to suit the seasons or particular requirements: bike racks, drinks and snack dispensers, multimedia areas and work or relaxation zones, for instance, can easily be added.
Wider windows offer increased luminosity and a sense of greater space and comfort. Advanced infotainment, audio and video services, as well as live video surveillance, ensure comfort and safety.
