Alstom has successfully delivered the first longest Citadis trams ever to Dublin from its factory in La Rochelle, France. 

Seven, 55-metre trams, purchased for 35 million by Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII), will run on the extension of the Dublin tram network as part of the LUAS Cross City transport project. They can carry up to 344 passengers. Once all seven trams have arrived from La Rochelle, they will be fully assembled at Alstoms site in Sandyford, and then undergo safety testing and commissioning. They are expected to enter service in February 2018. 

Seeing these fantastic Citadis trams arriving into Dublin was an incredibly proud moment for us at Alstom. It is another important milestone in our long and successful partnership with Transport Infrastructure Ireland. Dublin was amongst the first cities in the world to order our first tram in the Citadis range 15 years ago, and will now be the very first to try our longest model. We look forward to starting work on the final assembly and testing so that passengers in Dublin can enjoy these trams. said Nick Phillips, Customer and Operations Director at Alstom UK&I. 

Following the successful delivery from La Rochelle, Dublins Alstom Citadis fleet will comprise 73 trams in total. Alstom also maintains the trams and the network infrastructure. 

Alstom holds a strategic position in the tram and light rail vehicle market with around 15 years of return on experience, more than 50 customers, 2,500 Citadis sold and 1,900 vehicles in revenue service throughout the world. 

Citadis trams and light rail vehicles are suited to all urban environments, meeting the different expectations of passengers and cities, whether the requirement is for a new tramway network or the modernisation of existing networks. They boast impressive environmental credentials, being up to 98% recyclable, and can be equipped with several electric power systems.
