Alstom received an order worth around $55 million from Germany’s Hohenzollerische Landesbahn AG (HzL) for the supply of 10 Coradia Lint regional trains. The diesel multiple units will be built in Alstom’s plant in Salzgitter and delivered by May 2019 to run on the RE Ulm-Aalen, RB Ulm-Langnau, and RB Ulm-Munderkingen lines.

“With this contract, Alstom’s Coradia Lint will for the first time serve in the Baden-Württemberg region. Alstom’s well-proven regional trains will be a real enrichment for the region and bring passenger comfort to a new level,” says Jochen Slabon, sales director for Alstom in Germany and Austria.

The two-car trains ordered by HzL have a total seat capacity of 150 passengers and include 18 bike stances. They feature convenient, spacious seat layout with tables for laptops at most of every fixed seat. The trains are all equipped with Wi-Fi, entertainment, and passenger information system with monitors for static and dynamic information, as well as video surveillance guaranteeing a high level of passenger safety.

Since 2000, Alstom’s Coradia Lint trains are operated on more than 30 networks throughout Germany, Europe, and Canada. Being constantly upgraded, the trains offer high standards in safety, noise level, and carbon emissions and are characterized by their high availability. More than 2,200 Coradia trains have been sold and 1,900 are currently circulating in Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Canada.
