A new contract worth around €60 million in Australia

25 July 2018 - Alstom has signed a contract worth around €60 million with Transport for Victoria (TfV), the State’s public transport authority, to supply five additional X’Trapolis trainsets for Melbourne’s suburban rail network. This will expand TfV’s fleet to 106 trains (636 cars) delivered from Alstom’s manufacturing facility in Ballarat since 2002.

The Alstom X’Trapolis trains in Victoria is the largest fleet of single deck trains in Australia and have proven to be the most reliable rolling stock on the Melbourne network. The new trains will further enhance the network’s capacity while also increasing the reliability of the entire system.

Composed of six cars, the 145 metre long train has been designed to optimise capacity (1,238 passengers) whilst maximising passenger experience, comfort and safety. The new trains will also feature enhanced accessibility and improved automated safety features.

“We are pleased to supply the Victorian government a further 5 trains from our industrial base in Ballarat.” said Mark Coxon, Managing Director of Alstom in Australia and New Zealand. “This contract will provide workload for the site between April and December 2019, while we continue to work with the State to secure the long term future of the Ballarat Workshops and the local supply chain.” said Coxon. 

X’Trapolis is Alstom’s range of suburban trains, with over 4,600 X’Trapolis cars delivered over 10 years, in countries including Australia, Chile, Spain, South Africa and France.
