Alstom was awarded two contracts worth approximately $183 million by Trenitalia, the Italian national train operator, for the supply of 25 additional “Jazz” regional trains.

The new orders, which are exercised as two options under a contract signed in 2012, bring Trenitalia’s Jazz fleet to 95 trainsets.

“Jazz” is the latest generation of Alstom’s Coradia Meridian range designed for regional operators in Southern Europe, mainly in Italy. It is an Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) train that can run at a maximum speed of approximately 100 miles per hour, offering accessibility for all thanks to its low floor. Designed to be eco-friendly, Coradia Meridian is 95% recyclable.

Coradia Meridian regional trains are designed and manufactured by Alstom in Italy. Project development, most of the manufacturing as well as the certification are done in Savigliano site, in Cuneo. The Sesto San Giovanni plant (Milan) is responsible for the design and manufacturing of traction systems and auxiliary switchers. Trainborne signaling systems are delivered by the Bologna site.
