Alstom Chooses Knorr-Bremse as Its Partner for Coradia Stream Family

Alstom and Knorr-Bremse have signed a framework contract for the Coradia Stream family of regional trains.

Under the contract, which will run until the end of 2025, Knorr-Bremse will supply braking, entrance and climate control systems for multiple units based on Alstom’s Coradia Stream platform. The contract includes an option to extend by three years.

Starting in 2022, Knorr-Bremse will supply its products to three orders for electric multiple units for the operators Trenitalia (Italy), Danske Statsbaner (DSB, Denmark), and Expresskreuz Bremen network (LNVG, Germany). Knorr-Bremse estimates this work will go into 2024. DSB has already agreed a first firm order for 100 Coradia Stream trains and Knorr-Bremse will also supply systems for 34 regional trains due to enter passenger service in Germany from 2024.

Jürgen Wilder, Member of the Executive Board of Knorr-Bremse AG and responsible for the Rail Vehicle Systems division, said:

“The transition to more sustainable modes of transportation means that demand for clean, reliable and available rail transportation in Europe is set to continue unabated.

“Leading rail operators, vehicle manufacturers and systems suppliers such as Knorr-Bremse are acknowledging this trend by investing in sustainable modern rail infrastructure and systems. We are delighted to have signed this framework contract, which consolidates our close, long-standing relationship with our customer Alstom, strengthens our status as a partner in the important and prestigious platform business, and contributes to the realization of tomorrow’s key mobility solutions.”
