Alstom to supply 6 trains to German operator

Posted on April 9, 2014

Alstom will supply six new Coradia Lint regional trains to Germany’s Lower Saxony State public transit authority, LNVG. The order follows an initial contract signed in 2011, with the total value approximately $172 million.

As part of the contract, Alstom will also adapt 13 Coradia Lint regional trains already in service so that they can be operated as multiple units with the new trains. All new and modernized trains will be ready for operation in 2016.

Manufactured by Alstom in Salzgitter (Germany) and Katowice (Poland), the six new Coradia Lint 41 trains have a total capacity of 232 people each, including 114 seats.

The trains will feature wheelchair spaces, dedicated toilets, and a bridge to overcome the gap between the train and the platform edge to guarantee train access for all passengers. They are also fitted with security cameras to increase passenger safety.
