Alstom to supply, maintain Polish high-speed trains

Posted on June 1, 2011

The Polish operator PKP Intercity awarded Alstom a contract worth $958 million to supply 20 high-speed trains, their full maintenance up to 17 years and the construction of a new maintenance depot. The first trains are scheduled for delivery in 2014.

PKP Intercity will operate the trains on existing routes in Poland: Warsaw-Gdansk-Gdynia; Warsaw-Krakow; Warsaw-Katowice. The travel time will be significantly shortened. The trainsets will travel between Warsaw and Gdansk in two-and-a-half hours, and between Warsaw and Krakow or Warsaw and Katowice in slightly more than two hours.

The trainsets of seven cars each will be based on Alstom's standard New Pendolino platform. In line with the customer's specifications, they will not integrate the tilting system.

The trains will be manufactured at Alstom's Savigliano site in Italy, where Pendolino trains have been manufactured for more than 30 years.
