Alstom to Supply Coradia Stream H Hydrogen Trains in Italy

Alstom has announced that it will supply the first hydrogen trains to the region of Puglia, alongside a second order of hydrogen trains in Lombardy, Italy.

Ferrovie del Sud Est (FSE) has ordered two Coradia Stream H hydrogen trains to replace current diesel units operating in Puglia.

Michele Viale, Managing Director of Alstom in Italy and President and CEO of Alstom Ferroviaria said:

“We are extremely proud to supply the first hydrogen trains in Puglia and to grow the hydrogen train fleet in Lombardy. Alstom’s unrivalled expertise in the full range of green traction solutions uniquely positions us to identify the best solutions for our customers depending on their specific needs.

“With the supply of four hydrogen trains to Ferrovie del Sud Est and Ferrovie Nord Milano, we are advancing local innovation and the reduction of C02 emissions.”

The Coradia Stream H trains are based on Alstom’s single-deck Coradia Stream regional train platform. They are manufactured by Alstom in Italy.

When powered by green hydrogen, the vehicles produce no direct CO2 emissions and offer a smoother and quieter ride for passengers compared to diesel models.
