Alstom has received an order worth around 50 million from the HzL Hohenzollerische Landesbahn AG for the supply of 10 Coradia Lint regional trains. The diesel multiple units will be built in Alstoms plant in Salzgitter and delivered by May 2019 to run on the RE Ulm-Aalen, RB Ulm-Langenau and RB Ulm-Munderkingen lines (Vergabenetz 12 Ulmer Stern).

With this contract Alstoms Coradia Lint will for the first time serve in the Baden-Württemberg region. Alstoms well-proven regional trains will be a real enrichment for the region and bring passenger comfort to a new level, says Jochen Slabon, Sales Director for Alstom in Germany and Austria.

The Lint from Alstom is an absolutely new feature in our train fleet. We are very excited about the new trains and are happy to be able to offer our future passengers a high comfort says Tobias Harms, Chief Technology Officer HzL.

They feature convenient, spacious seat layout with tables for lap-tops at most of every fixed seat. The trains are all equipped with Wi-Fi, entertainment and passenger information system with monitors for static and dynamic information, as well as video surveillance guaranteeing a high level of passenger safety.

More than 2,200 Coradia trains have been sold and 1,900 are currently circulating in Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Canada.
