A contract worth around €360 million

18 December 2018Alstom has been awarded a contract to supply 34 regional high-capacity double-deck trains from the Coradia range to CFL[1] for a total of around €360 million.  The new fleet will include 80-metre and 160-metre long trains to be delivered from December 2021 onwards. The trains, which will be able to reach a maximum speed of 160 km/h, will run on the national network, as well as in Belgium and France.

“We are pleased to have won CFL’s trust for the supply of a reliable, energy efficient, safe and comfortable transport solution for their passengers. The new train we offer is a concentration of the latest innovations from our proven Coradia platform. With a total capacity of more than 15,000 seats, these trains will allow CFL to safely carry more passengers, improving mobility and accessibility throughout Luxemburg,” said Gian Luca Erbacci, Alstom Senior Vice President Europe.

“Proven technology and at the same time a train that is ready for the future – this is what Alstom is offering us and our travelers. We very much look forward to cooperation in the coming years. The new trains are necessary for the replacement of existing material and to meet the significant expected increase of passengers commuting to Luxemburg.” said Marc Wengler, CEO at CFL.

The trains for CFL boast the latest technologies offering the best possible experience to both passengers and CFL staff. They feature spacious and well-lit areas for reading and resting, areas for bicycles, as well as dedicated restrooms and areas for people with reduced mobility. The trains are equipped with WIFI and LED lighting. They present easy access for rapid passenger flow and are equipped with a dynamic passenger information system. All coaches are fitted with security cameras to increase passenger and crew safety. The trains meet the highest standards for interoperability and will be equipped with ERTMS (ETCS level 2-baseline 3) and TBL1+ signalling systems

The new trains for CFL belong to Alstom’s Coradia range of modular trains, which boast over 30 years of expertise. Over 2,300 Coradia trains are currently in operation in 9 European countries, as well as Canada.

The trains are designed and developed at Alstom’s site in Valenciennes (France) by an international team of experts of six different nationalities. They will be manufactured at Alstom’s site in Barcelona (Spain). Other European sites involved in the project include Charleroi (Belgium), Reichshoffen, Tarbes, Ornans, Villeurbanne (France), Savigliano (Italy) and Salzgitter (Germany).
