Alstom to deliver 70 Italian trains

Posted on December 5, 2012

Alstom was awarded an order from the Italian public railway operator, Trenitalia, to supply 70 new regional trains.

The Alstom Coradia Meridian trains will support the strengthening and modernizing of Trenitalia’s regional services throughout Italy. Deliveries are expected to begin slightly over one year after the signing of the contract.

The trains will operate in several Italian regions. They will also service the link between Fiumicino international airport and Roma Termini station. Specially designed for intercity and extra-urban lines, they have roomy and versatile interiors offering commuters a high-quality travel experience.

The regional trains for Trenitalia will be designed and manufactured in Italy. Project development, most of the manufacturing as well as the certification, will be done in Savigliano Alstom’s site in Cuneo. The plant in Sesto San Giovanni (Milan) will be responsible for the design and manufacturing of the traction systems and auxiliary switchers. Onboard signaling systems will be delivered by the Bologna site.
