A world leader in green traction solutions

Coradia iLint details

Alstom is committed to taking up the challenge of sustainable mobility. The Group is the only rail player that today offers the entire scope of green traction solutions and in-house fuel cell technology and to have battery and hydrogen trains in passenger operation.

Pioneering green mobility solutions

Alstom has over 20 years of expertise in non-emission technology, and offers a large portfolio of green traction products for hydrogen, battery, hybrid and bi-mode catenary and hydrogen applications. The portfolio includes both new and refurbishment options.

As a leader in sustainable mobility, Alstom has developed the broadest green traction portfolio of the railway industry, featuring both the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell powered passenger train, Coradia iLintTM, and advanced battery technology for railway vehicles including light rail vehicles, regional and commuter trains and locomotives. The different technologies have each their advantages and are complementary, and there are several factors to be considered when choosing. Battery technology is the emission-free preferred solution for shorter non-electrified lines, while hydrogen is suited for longer range of up to 1,000 km. 

Hydrogen traction

Trains with hydrogen traction offer a clean, reliable and cost efficient alternative non-electrified lines. A hydrogen powered train can cover ranges up to 1,000 kilometers, it is quiet and comfortable, and the only local exhaust is water. 

Alstom is the only rail company to have hydrogen powered passenger trains already in commercial  use. Introduced in 2016, the Coradia iLintTM  is the world’s first and only operational passenger hydrogen train. It has successfully operated in regular passenger service in Germany and Austria and covered more than 220,000 kilometers. In addition, it has been successfully shown in the Netherlands, Sweden, France, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia. 

Hydrogen powered trains are a commercial reality for Alstom: Alstom has signed four contracts for hydrogen fuel cell powered trains. The first one is for 14 trains  in the German region of Lower Saxony in 2017. The second one, also in Germany, for 27 trains to the Frankfurt metropolitan area. In 2020, 6 trains with an option for 8 were sold to FNM in Italy and in 2021, SNCF Voyageurs placed an order with Alstom for the first 12 dual mode electric-hydrogen trains (plus two optional trainsets) in the Coradia range for Régiolis.

Battery traction

Alstom is committed to contribute to the further development of sustainable mobility by offering a wide product portfolio of emission-free traction technologies: battery powered trains is one of them, especially well-suited for shorter, non-electrified lines.  

Alstom’s traction batteries are an innovative solution for environmentally friendly mobility and can be applied to various trains; from LRV, to commuter and regional, to locomotives. The Coradia range of regional trains has been especially tailored to operate with all available emission-free power systems, from electric to battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cells.    

Alstom’s prototype BEMU (Battery Electric Multiple Unit) can operate catenary-free, and a fully developed serial version from the Coradia range will be ready for a range up to 120 km.  

In 2020, Alstom signed a first contract to deliver 11 Coradia Continental battery-electric trains for regional traffic to Zweckverband Verkehrsverbund Mittelsachsen (VMS) in Germany. In 2022, Alstom and Deutsche Bahn (DB) successfully tested Alstom’s first fully approved battery train in passenger service during 4 months.
