New Lightweight Regional Trains Delivered to Denmark
Alstom has delivered on-time 13 Coradia Lint regional trains to Nordjyske Jernbaner, just two years after contract signature.
The trains will be put into operation in autumn this year in Denmark, mainly on the Nordjylland network. The trains were built in Salzgitter (Germany), one of Alstom’s production sites for regional trains.
Peter Hvilshøj, CEO, Nordjyske Jernbaner, said:
“Nordjyske Jernbaner is significantly increasing its operation activities and we are pleased to have received Alstom’s 13 Coradia Lint on-time. We chose this train as it is a very reliable and well performing train and they fit well into our operational conditions to the benefits of our passengers”
Coradia Lint Regional Trains
Coradia Lint has already shown great reliability and an overall high standard. Thanks to its lightweight construction, it has reduced fuel consumption. Its maximum operating speed is 140 km/h. The 2-unit trains ordered by Nordjyske Jernbaner have a total of 125 seats and up to 135 places for standing passengers. The trains are also equipped with Wi-Fi, air conditioning, information systems and video surveillance for the full comfort and security of the passengers.
With over 900 trains sold, Coradia Lint is the best-seller of Alstom’s regional trains and part of Alstom’s regional range Coradia. About 2,000 Coradia trains are currently in operation around the world, including Denmark, Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Sweden, and Canada. The latest development of the Coradia range is Coradia iLint, the first hydrogen-fuelled passenger train designed and manufactured in Salzgitter.
Christian Algreen-Ussing, Alstom’s Managing Director in Denmark, said:
“Alstom is pleased to support Nordjyske Jernbaner’s new operating lines with Coradia Lint, a modern regional train that offers full accessibility and increased passenger comfort thanks, to its large number of seats. Today, 97 Coradia Lint regional trains previously delivered by Alstom are successfully operating on the Danish network”
