After unveiling the ‘Coradia Stream’ for the Dutch railways earlier today, Alstom now has also presented the Stream for Trenitalia, the Italian railway company. In Italy, the Coradia Stream is the basis for a high-performance low-floor electric multiple unit for regional and intercity transport. Trenitalia has named the train ‘Pop’, another one in the series named after dances. Alstom states the Coradia Stream is developed for the European market.
“We are very proud to present today in two different European countries two versions of this train, for intercity transport in the Netherlands and for regional traffic in Italy. With its improved modularity, new passenger experience and weight savings, Coradia Stream opens a new chapter in the commercial success story of the Coradia regional range spanning more than 30 years. The name we have chosen for this train reflects its true spirit: fluid, dynamic, fast and light”, said Wolfram Schwab, Vice President for Regional & Intercity trains.
The first order for 79 Coradia Stream was placed in July 2016 by NS. Called Intercity Next Generation (ICNG) by the operator, the trains will run on the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Breda line and on the Den Haag-Eindhoven corridor at a maximum speed of 200 km/h. At the same time, a full-scale model of the Coradia Stream for Trenitalia was unveiled at Expoferroviaria, a railway exhibition taking place in Milan from 3 to 5 October.
Named ‘Pop’ by the Italian operator, this train has been designed for operation in the different Italian regions. Highly modular, the Coradia Stream for Trenitalia offers a wide range of easily combined interiors, liveries and accessories. Every region can easily customise its trains using an interactive configurator. This solution is adapted to different configurations and capacity needs for regional and suburban transport. Trenitalia awarded Alstom with a frame contract to supply 150 Coradia Stream trains in August 2016. Alstom will start delivering the first batch of 47 trains in early 2019.
