Alstom has won a contract to supply Landerbahn (Regentalbahn AG) a subsidiary of NetineraDeutschland Gmbh, twelve CoradiaLint 41 regional trains. The trains will enter operation in the middle of 2016 in Germany, mainly on the Oberpfalzbahn network and in the Czech Republic.
The Coradia Lint 41 is a highly advanced, modern and environmentally friendly low consumption Diesel Unit, which can reach a top speed of 140 km/h. The 2 carriages trains will have a total of 125 seats and have standing capacity for an additional 135 passengers. They offer complete access to all passengers with reduced mobility thanks to the barrier-free entrances. The units are spacious and feature multi-purpose areas with excellent storage for wheelchairs, bicycles, and pushchairs. They are also equipped with passenger information screens, air-con, and video surveillance which will provide the passenger with a comfortable and safe journey.
Alstom thanks Lnderbahn and Netinera Deutschland for their renewed trust2. The company is confident in the success of this project which has an ambitious schedule in view to manufacture, test and commission the trains in just over one year. With over 780 Coradia Lint sold to 18 operators in Germany, Netherlands, Denmark and Canada, Alstom benefits from an extensive return on experience with a train which proves its value in use every day, says Didier Pfleger, Vice President of Alstom Transport for Germany and Austria.
With the Coradia Lint 41 from Alstom, we have a train already homologated and widely used in Germany, says Gerhard Knbel, CEO of Regentalbahn AG.
Coradia Lint is part of Alstoms Coradia range of modular trains that benefit from over 30 years of experience and proven technical solutions. Alstom has sold more than 3,000 of its regional trains.
