Posted on December 17, 2014

Alstom delivered the new train Jazz to the Abruzzo, Italy region, at the Pescara railway station. The train is part of the 70 regional trains ordered by Trenitalia to Alstom in November 2012, among which four are intended for Abruzzo region. All the trains will be delivered by the end of 2015.

It is an EMU- (Electric Multiple Unit) type train that can run at a maximum speed of approximately 99 miles per hour. Its concentrated traction system with two motor bogies optimizes the electrical braking capability of the train allowing energy consumption and brake wear to be reduced. It is an environmentally friendly train with a 95% rate of recyclability.

Coradia Meridian regional trains are designed and manufactured in Italy. Project development, most of the manufacturing and the certification are done in Savigliano site in Cuneo. The plant in Sesto San Giovanni (Milan) is responsible for the design and manufacturing traction syst

ems and auxiliary switchers. Trainborne signaling systems are delivered by the Bologna site.
