Alstom va livra 6 rame pe hidrogen Coradia iLint către Ferrovie Nord Milano (FNM), existând posibilitatea de a suplimenta comanda cu 8 unități:
Alstom will supply six hydrogen fuel cell trains, with the option for eight more, to FNM (Ferrovie Nord Milano), the main transport and mobility group in the Italian region of Lombardy, for a total amount of approximately €160 million. The first train delivery is expected within 36 months of the date of the order.
The new hydrogen trains will be based on Alstom’s Coradia Stream regional train platform, which is dedicated to the European market and already being produced for Italy by Alstom’s main Italian sites. The hydrogen powered Coradia Stream for FNM, will be equipped with the same fuel cell propulsion technology that was introduced to the world by the Coradia iLint. The hydrogen Coradia Stream will maintain the high standards of comfort already appreciated by passengers of its electric version. The hydrogen version will match the operational performance of diesel trains, including their range.
“We are immensely proud to be introducing hydrogen train technology to Italy, and we recognise the trust placed in us by our Italian customer. This development confirms Alstom’s role in defining the future of mobility. These trains, together with the Coradia iLint that have already proven themselves in commercial service in Germany, represent another major step in the transition towards global sustainable transport systems. I take this opportunity to congratulate FNM for demonstrating that they are a leader in this area,” says Gian Luca Erbacci, Senior Vice President of Alstom Europe.
The Coradia iLint is the world’s first passenger train powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, which produces electrical power for traction. This zero-emission train emits low levels of noise, with exhaust being only steam and condensed water. The iLint is special for its combination of different innovative elements: clean energy conversion, flexible energy storage in batteries, and smart management of traction power and available energy. Specifically designed for operation on non-electrified lines, it enables clean, sustainable train operation while ensuring high levels of performance.
The Coradia Stream trains for FNM are manufactured by Alstom in Italy. Project development, most of the manufacturing and certification are performed at Alstom’s site in Savigliano. The on-board signalling systems are delivered by the Bologna site.

VOLTURNO Autonomous Body (EAV), the transport authority for the Campania region of Italy, has awarded a framework agreement for the supply of up to 40 three-car EMUs to Stadler.
The awarding of the contract follows a ruling by the Council of State on March 8 which selected Stadler to supply the new trains, following a legal challenge by Stadler to overturn EAV’s previous decision to award the contract to Hitachi in September 2019.
The contract includes an initial order for 23 1.5kV dc EMUs and covers the production and delivery of the 40m-long trains, as well as the provision of maintenance for five years following commissioning.
The trains will be used to operate services on the 950mm-gauge 142km Circumvesuviana regional network, which consists of six lines serving eastern Naples suburbs and running to Sorento.
The trains will have aluminium car bodies to reduce energy consumption and overall weight and will have wide gangways and five doors on each side for improved accessibility and faster alighting and boarding at stations.
The new fleet will be progressively phased in to replace older vehicles currently used on the network. EAV’s current fleet includes 21 three-car ETR 211 Metrostar EMUs reintroduced in 2018 following a wave of severe technical failures in that model which left EAV with severe rolling stock shortages.

FerrovieNord, part of FNM Group, and Alstom have signed a contract for the supply of 20 Coradia Stream regional trains which will operate the regional rail network of the Region of Lombardy. EUR 125 million is the value of the contract which is the contract within the framework agreement signed in November 2019 with FNM for 61 regional trains.
Alstom will deliver the trains from June 2023 onwards.
The train ordered by FerrovieNord, named “Donizetti” by the customer, belongs to Alstom’s Coradia Stream range of trains.
The single-deck electric trains each have four traction motors and a maximum speed of 160 km/h. They represent the latest generation of a model that is already in commercial service in ten Italian regions, and are produced in conformity with the Technical Specification for Interoperability (TSI).
Coradia Stream can be easily adapted for different types of service. The interior and seating arrangements can be modified to suit diverse needs, for example with more seats on longer routes or optimised standing space for shorter journeys. The modular interiors can be adapted to suit the seasons or particular requirements. Bike racks, drinks and snack dispensers, multimedia areas and work or relaxation zones, for instance, can easily be added.
Wider windows offer increased luminosity and a sense of greater space and comfort. Advanced infotainment, audio, and video services, as well as live video surveillance, ensure comfort and safety.
The new trains satisfy strict criteria of environmental sustainability and are 96 per cent recyclable and consume 30 per cent less energy than the previous generation. Minimal levels of noise and vibration ensure a quiet and comfortable journey. The trains boast high-performance air conditioning systems.
The Coradia Stream regional trains for Lombardy are manufactured by Alstom in Italy.
In the last decade, Alstom has delivered 54 regional trains for Lombardy. In November 2020, Alstom and FNM signed a contract for the supply of six hydrogen trains, Italy’s first order for these innovative trains. FNM operates 331 km of railway network and 124 train stations in Lombardy.
