Alstom was awarded a contract by Hessische Landesbahn (HLB) for 30 Coradia Lint regional trains to Hessische Landesbahn (HLB) for use on the Wetterau West-East subnetwork. The contract is worth approximately worth 120 million euros.
"We have been using Coradia Lint vehicles successfully in our networks for many years,” said HLB Managing Director Veit Salzmann. “We appreciate the continuity in the cooperation with Alstom and would like to emphasize that we have been supplied punctually and completely in all projects so far. We are convinced that Alstom will succeed in doing the same in the Wetterau region."
The Coradia Lint 41 DMUs feature two multi-purpose areas seating for 120, Wi-Fi, video surveillance and a passenger information system with real-time data. The trains are also equipped with diesel engines, fulfilling the new European Stage V emission standard.
“The new order by HLB is a further success for our proven and best-selling Coradia Lint,” remarked Jörg Nikutta, Alstom Germany and Austria managing director. “We look forward to accompanying HLB in the delivery of reliable and comfortable train services to their passengers in the Wetterau area.”
The trains will be manufactured in Salzgitter, Germany.
