Alstom to supply 130 Coradia Stream trains to SFBW in Germany
The total contract value is almost 2.5 billion euro for the first 130 trains and their maintenance for over 30 years.
Alstom, global leader in smart and sustainable mobility, has signed a contract to supply 130 Coradia Stream High Capacity (HC) electric double-deck trains to Landesanstalt Schienenfahrzeuge Baden-Württemberg (SFBW) for the Baden-Württemberg network, in Germany.
The trains are also equipped with modern signalling and automation technology in the scope of the lighthouse project known as "Digital Node Stuttgart" (DKS), Germany’s first digitised railway node. They will start operation in 2025 at the same time as the first two sections of the DKS.
The subsequent upgrading of the vehicles to TSI CCS 2022, the future evolution of the European standard for cross-border traffic in the European Economic Area, will be deployed until mid-2027. This will allow all three sections of the DKS to be used.
