Alstom has just delivered the last Pendolino ETR 610 high-speed train to SBB, in accordance with the planned schedule defined within the contract signed in 2015 for four additional trains. They will operate as EuroCity trains on the Gotthard and Simplon line to Milan. This last delivery completes SBBs tilting fleet, which now counts 19 Pendolino trains. 

We are thankful for the trust that SBB put in us and pleased to meet that trust again. Over the years we have built a strong relationship with our Swiss customer. With its unique tilting technology and its cross-border performance, Pendolino is perfectly adapted to the SBB network, said Michele Viale, Managing Director Italy and Switzerland at Alstom. 

The Pendolino train for SBB is a seven-car train which can accommodate up to 430 passengers at a commercial top speed of 250 km/h. The train offers an excellent level of passenger accessibility and comfort thanks to, among other features, wide gangways and corridors, reclining seats, individual reading lights and electric sockets, as well as large panoramic windows. 

The train is equipped with the latest generation of flexible bogies reducing track and wheel wear. It also benefits from Alstoms unique tilting technology that allows for trains to run safely at a speed 35% faster through curves on conventional lines. 

Designed to be eco-friendly, Pendolino is 95% recyclable and is equipped with an electric braking system enabling almost 10% reduction in energy consumption. 

All trains were manufactured in Savigliano (Italy), Alstoms worldwide competence centre for tilting high-speed trains and an example of Factory 4.0. Its innovative 3D virtual reality room enables Alstom engineers to design trains for easier maintainability. Over 500 Pendolino trains have been produced in Savigliano since 30 years. Part of Alstoms Avelia range of high-speed and very-high-speed trains, Pendolino is currently operating in 12 countries and crosses 7 orders.
