Alstom’s Italian factories are to build another 20 regional trains for the regional railway service of the Region of Lombardy.

This €125 million (£109 million) order is the second call-off from a framework agreement signed in November 2019 with the Ferrovienord subsidiary of FNM (Ferrovie Nord Milano), the second-largest railway operator in Italy.  The trains will be delivered from June 2023 onwards.

Named “Donizetti” by the operator, the trains are part of Alstom’s Coradia Stream range.  Single-deck electric trains, each with four traction motors and a maximum speed of 160km/h (100mph), they are the latest generation of a model that is already in commercial service in ten Italian regions.

Michele Viale, Alstom.

Michele Viale, managing director of Alstom Italy, said: “We are, as always, very proud to be working with our trusted partners FNM and Ferrovienord to provide modern, comfortable and sustainable regional transportation in Italy.

“In the last 10 years, Alstom has delivered 54 regional trains for Lombardy. The new generation of Coradia Stream represents the best solution for meeting the increasing needs of both the region’s travellers and the operator.”

The Coradia Stream trains for Lombardy are manufactured by Alstom in Italy. Project development, most of the manufacturing and certification are performed at Alstom’s site in Savigliano (CN). Design and manufacturing of the traction systems and other components takes place at the Sesto San Giovanni (MI), and the on-board signalling systems are delivered by the Bologna site.
