Alstom has received an order worth over 27 million from Hessische Landesbahn GmbH (HLB), transport operator in the state of Hesse, for the delivery of 5 Coradia Continental regional trains. The vehicles will be produced at Alstom's site in Salzgitter, Germany.

The trains will be delivered in December 2019 and will operate in the Frankfurt Rhine Main metropolitan area. With these new trains HLB will be able to meet an increasing number of passengers while continuing to provide optimal service. This latest order adds to HLBs 2015 order of 30 identical Coradia Continental electric multiple units (EMUs), which will enter passenger service on the Südhessen-Untermain network in December 2018.

We are very pleased by the confidence that HLB is showing in Alstom by topping up the original order with a further five Coradia Continental trains. The order bears witness to a solid, long-lasting relationship with our customer said Joerg Nikutta, Managing Director of Alstom in Germany & Austria.

Alstoms regional train Coradia Continental is able to circulate at a commercial speed of 160 km/h. It offers excellent acceleration characteristics, reducing travel time. The four-car trainsets will be able to carry up to 460 passengers. Special emphasis has been placed on passenger comfort. Five multi-purpose areas provide space for wheelchairs, bicycles and strollers. The traction equipment is located on the roof, allowing spacious interior design, including a large corridor for easier movement within the train. The trains are equipped with Wi-Fi, outlets for laptops and a real-time passenger information system that displays connection information.

Coradia Continental belongs to Alstoms Coradia range of modular trains that benefit from a know-how of more than 30 years and from well-proven technical solutions. More than 2,800 Coradia trains have been sold so far and around 2,300 are currently in service in Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Sweden and Canada.
