Alstom has been awarded four contracts totaling around $40 million by Trenitalia, the Italian national train operator, for the supply of 54 Coradia Stream regional trains. The trains are destined for the Italian regions of Abruzzo, Liguria, Marche, and Veneto, as part of the framework agreement signed in 2016 between Alstom and Trenitalia. The 54 additional trains add to the 47 trains already ordered by the Emilia Romagna region in 2016.

Alstom’s Coradia Stream for Trenitalia, dubbed “Pop” by the customer, is the latest generation of trains designed for regional and intercity lines. Coradia Stream is an Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) with maximum speed of approximately 99 mph in the regional version. The train ordered by Trenitalia can transport more than 300 passengers seated, offering easy accessibility thanks to its low floor. Designed to be eco-friendly, the train is 95% recyclable.

Coradia Stream can be easily customized to different services. Interior layouts and seating arrangements can be modified, to provide for example, more seats for longer journeys, or fewer seats and more standing room for shorter trips. The cars’ interior layout can be adapted to seasons and specific needs: it is possible to add bicycle or ski racks, electric sockets, Wi-Fi connection, vending machines for drinks and snacks, multimedia areas, and areas for working or relaxation. Aboard the Coradia Stream, comfort, space, and light are maximized by larger windows, while advanced services, such as infotainment, audio and video feeds, and a live video surveillance system, ensure comfort and security.

The Coradia Stream “Pop” trains are manufactured by Alstom in Italy. Project development, most of the manufacturing and certification are performed at Alstom’s site in Savigliano, Cuneo. Design and manufacturing of the traction systems and auxiliary switches takes place at the Sesto San Giovanni plant (Milan), and the on-board signaling systems are delivered by the Bologna site.
