The French rolling stock manufacturer Alstom has secured a € 2.5 billion contract from the Landesanstalt Schienenfahrzeuge Baden-Württemberg (SFBW) for the supply of Coradia Stream High Capacity (HC) double-decker electric trains.

The scope of the contract includes the delivery of 130 Coradia Stream trains to the SFBW network in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

Under the contract, Alstom will also provide full train maintenance for 30 years.

The contract also has an option to order an additional order of up to 100 trains.

The president of the Alstom DACH region, Muslim Jakisan, said: “This agreement is undoubtedly a milestone in the cooperation between Alstom and the state of Baden-Württemberg.

“Modern trains like our Coradia Stream High Capacity are the best answer to the question of how to meet the growing need for sustainable and reliable mobility solutions in Germany.”

With a total of 380 seats, the four-car trains have two double-decker control wagons and two single-deck middle wagons.

Designed to operate in multiple tracks, the trains are 106 meters long and are designed according to the requirements of SFBW.

Other features on the train include air conditioning, free Wi-Fi, a variety of options for charging mobile phones and laptops, and reading lamps.

In addition, trains include lounges, conference and family compartments, as well as multifunctional compartments for large luggage, prams and bicycles.

As part of the Digital Node Stuttgart (DKS) project, trains are also installed with state-of-the-art signaling and automation technology.

In addition, Alstom received the contract for the modernization of the existing fleets SFBW Talent 3 and Flirt 3.

Coradia’s new trains will feature European Train Control System (ETCS) levels 2 and 3, in addition to Automatic Train Control (ATO) with Automation Degree (GoA) 2.

With a top speed of 200 km / h, the Coradia Stream is a low floor and high-performance electrical appliance that can work with all key European power systems.

Last month, Alstom won a contract with Germany’s DB Regio to supply 29 Coradia Stream trains.
