On March 1st, Alstom welcomed a delegation of the Danish Parliamentary Transport Committee and Danish Transport ministry in its factory at Salzgitter, Lower Saxony (Germany). Headed by Chairman of Transport Committee, Lennart Damsbo-Andersen (S) and the Danish ambassador in Germany, Friis Arne Petersen, the delegation was presented with the latest development of the factory: Coradia iLint a fuel-cell regional train powered with hydrogen.   

Alstom is one of the first railway manufacturers in the world to develop a passenger train based on such a technology. Coradia iLint is an emission free regional train and a silent alternative to diesel multiple units. Powered by hydrogen fuel cells, its only emission is steam and condensed water while it operates with low noise level. Coradia iLint is special for its combination of different innovative elements: a clean energy conversion, flexible energy storage, and a smart management of the traction power and available energy.

Designed and manufactured in Salzgitter, Coradia iLint is based on Alstoms flagship diesel train Coradia Lint where the diesel technology was replaced with hydrogen and fuel cell. Four German länder have already signed letters of intent for over 60 Coradia iLint. Currently undergoing testings for homologation in Germany, the first 2 trains should enter commercial operation beginning of 2018.

Denmark shows a growing interest for greener mobility. Gradually shifting from diesel to electricity, the country is currently investing in infrastructure and renewal of train fleet.

Alstom has been present on the Danish market since 19 years, having sold close to 300 regional trains in the country, as well as world-class signalling solutions. Alstom is currently replacing the existing signalling system in the Eastern part of the country with its ERTMS-based solution Atlas for Banedanmark. The company is also currently delivering from Salzgitter 13 additional regional trains Coradia Lint ordered by Banedanmark in 2012. Close to 100 Coradia Lint are operating today in Denmark.
