Alstom has been awarded a contract  by Nordjyske Jernbane in Denmark to supply thirteen Coradia Lint regional trains. The trains will enter into service during the autumn 2017 in Denmark on the Nordjyllands network.

The Coradia Lint 41 is an environmentally-friendly low-consumption Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) that can reach a maximum operating speed of up to 87 mph. The two-unit trains ordered by Nordjyske Jernbane have a total of 125 seats and up to 135 places for standing passengers. They offer full accessibility to all passengers, including people with reduced mobility, thanks to barrier-free entrances.

The trains, built in Alstom’s Salzgitter plant in Germany, feature spacious multi-purpose areas with sufficient storage space for wheelchairs, bicycles and strollers. They are also equipped with air conditioning, passenger information systems and video surveillance.

“We will supply Nordjyske Jernbane with a train that has shown remarkably high and solid track-record on punctuality and reliability. With this new order, Denmark will then have approximately 100 Lint regional trains running in passenger operation”, says Christian Algreen-Ussing, Managing Director of Alstom Transport for Denmark.

Coradia Lint is part of Alstom’s Coradia range of modular trains that benefit from over 30 years of experience and proven technical solutions. Alstom has sold more than 3,000 of its regional trains.
