The first firm order of 100 Coradia Stream regional trains and a 15-year full-service maintenance agreement is valued at 1.4bn euros (1.66bn USD). The framework agreement includes an additional 15 years of maintenance services and the possibility of additional trainset orders.

Delivery of DSB’s Fremtidens Tog – Nye Tog (Trains of the Future – New Trains) is scheduled to begin in Q4 2024. Once in service, this new fleet will operate as a regional and fast rail service connecting Denmark’s Frederikshavn region in the north to Rødby in the southeast via Copenhagen.

Rob Whyte, Managing Director of Alstom Nordics, said:

“We're extremely pleased that DSB has selected Alstom to build their ‘Trains of the Future’…Once in service, Coradia Stream will deliver an exceptional travel experience. This modern, premium quality, and stylish electric train combines innovation, sustainability and high comfort – something we look forward to presenting to passengers in Denmark.”

The Coradia Stream for DSB has been specially adapted to meet the needs of the Danish rail network and its top speed of 200km/h will help ensure swift mobility across the country. Each trainset will consist of five single-deck coaches with a total seating capacity of 300 passengers.

The trains will be pre-fitted with Alstom’s Atlas onboard ETCS Baseline 3 as well as an STM interface enabling it to operate on Denmark’s legacy signalling system.

Alstom will assemble the trains at its site in Salzgitter, Germany.
