Alstom to deliver 8 trains to Sweden

Posted on September 7, 2012

Alstom received an order from the Swedish Public Transport Authority Östgötatrafiken AB for eight additional Coradia Nordic regional trains. The order is part of a frame agreement signed in 2008 between Alstom and Östgötatrafiken. It brings the total number of Coradia Nordic trains ordered by Östgötatrafiken to 13.

The new Coradia Nordic X61 regional trains will replace older trains on the Östgöta railway network. Delivery is planned for early 2015.

Coradia Nordic regional train is designed to meet passengers’ requirements in respect to comfort, access and mobility. Its lower floors and absence of steps facilitate access to passengers, especially those with reduced mobility.

Coradia Nordic regional train for Östgötatrafiken will be manufactured in Alstom’s competence center for regional trains in Salzgitter in Germany. Since 2002, Alstom has sold 247 regional trains in Sweden.
