Alstom to supply 17 additional Coradia Stream inter-regional electric trains and associated maintenance in Romania

Alstom and the Romanian Railway Reform Authority (ARF) have signed an addendum to the initial contract for the delivery of additional Coradia Stream inter-regional trains and associated 15 years maintenance services. 

These trains will supplement the first 20 trains, ordered in March 2022, creating the first passenger railway fleet provided by Alstom in Romania.

“These 37 modern inter-regional electric trains will significantly contribute to the country’s transition to sustainable mobility – in line with our ambition to lead the way towards greener and smarter mobility worldwide,” said Gabriel Stanciu, managing director Alstom Romania, Bulgaria and Moldova.

Developed for the European market, Coradia Stream trains are equipped with the ERTMS

Level 2 traffic control system and comply with both European standards (EN) as well as Technical Interoperability Specifications (TSIs), being capable of operating on all the main European power supply systems. The maximum speed of the trains will be 100mph (160km/h).

Each train will have six cars, a total capacity of 350 seats and 100 per cent low floor accessibility, to assure easy access for all passengers. There will be two entry doors on each side of the middle cars and one door for each side of the end cars. The passenger information system will include a sound system and a dynamic display system. Each train car will be equipped with large-size luggage racks.

The Coradia Stream trains will also be equipped with a digital system for passenger counting with high-precision sensors. Each train will have four ecological toilets, evenly distributed along the entire length of the train, with one designed for people with reduced mobility. The final configuration, colours and finishes will be fully customised according to the requirements of the Contracting Authority during the design stage.
