Alstom to Supply 8 Coradia Lint Diesel Trains to ODEG

Alstom is to supply Ostdeutsche Eisenbahn GmbH (ODEG) with eight Coradia Lint regional trains. These diesel multiple units feature EU-emission Stage V powerpack – the first in the world – which makes them more environmentally friendly compared to other DMUs.

Alstom will build these multiple units in Salzgitter, Lower Saxony. Delivery will take place in the second half of 2022. They will then enter service on the Elbe-Spree network from December 2022, in line with the new timetable. This contract is worth around 45 million euros (51 million USD).

Each one of the diesel trains will contain three 400kW engines. A new kind of engine management system allows each one of them to be switched on and off individually. This is beneficial both from an environmental perspective and for economic reasons. The trains will have a top operating speed of 140km/h.

The two-car trains will have 140 seats, as well as space for 12 bicycles or six pushchairs. There will be four doors on each side of the vehicle. Furthermore, these trains will have their boarding height tailored to the network.

Persons with reduced mobility will also be able to use these trains as they will have wheelchair spaces and accessible toilets. Passengers will enjoy the on-board wifi and power sockets. The passenger information displays will also be extra large, making them easier to read.

Jörg Nikutta, Managing Director of Alstom in Germany and Austria, said:

“Parallel to the development of new emission-free technologies, we at Alstom are also consistently developing the proven diesel technology in an environmentally friendly manner. The Coradia Lint regional trains for ODEG comply with the EU Stage 5 emissions standard. This makes them the most environmentally friendly diesel trains in the world.”
