ALSTOM wins regional train contract in Denmark

Rijswijk – Lokalbanen, a Danish Public Transport Operator, has awarded ALSTOM a contract for the supply of 27 trains for transit in the greater Copenhagen region worth 77 million euros.

The new 2-car CORADIA LINT 41 Diesel trains will run on Lokalbanen’s lines in Denmark’s Northern Zealand region serving the Greater Copenhagen area. They will replace trains of up to 40 years of age to increase passenger comfort, reduce transit time and to attract more passengers.

All trains will be manufactured by ALSTOM’s factory in Salzgitter, Germany. They will be equipped with high-comfort seats, zones with provision for wheel chairs and prams. As for safety, they will be provided with video surveillance of the passenger and entrance areas, a stepboard to close the gap between the train and the platform and an ATP (Automatic Train Protection) system.

The first delivery will take place in autumn 2006, the final delivery being scheduled for autumn 2007.
