ALSTOM has won a €45 million commuter-train order from Hamburg S-Bahn and a €39 million order for railway systems and infrastructure from Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI).  

Trains for S-Bahn Hamburg  

S-Bahn Hamburg, the city’s rapid-transit railway, has awarded a consortium consisting of ALSTOM and Bombardier Transportation an order for the supply of nine new trains and the rebuilding of 33 existing trains. ALSTOM’s share of the €90 million order is €45 million.

The 42 three-unit trains will offer service on a new extension of an S-Bahn line. Both the new and the renovated trains will be equipped to use two different power-supply systems.
ALSTOM will supply the mechanical equipment from its site at Salzgitter, and Bombardier will supply the electrical equipment.

Railway systems and infrastructure for Milan-Bologna line  

RFI, the infrastructure subsidiary of Italy's national railway group, Ferrovie dello Stato, has awarded an ALSTOM-led consortium a €65 million order to supply systems and infrastructure for a railway line between Milan and Bologna. ALSTOM’s share of the contract is €39 million.

ALSTOM will design, manufacture, install and test the systems for signaling, train control, telecommunications, power supply and lighting.

The other members of the consortium are the Italian companies Sirti, Ceprini, Icefs and CLF, which will carry out other engineering and construction work, such as civil works and trackwork.
