Global leader in smart and sustainable mobility Alstom has been awarded a contract worth nearly EUR 370 million to supply 49 additional Coradia Stream high-capacity trains to Renfe in Spain. These trains will supplement the 152 trains already ordered in March 2021. The two orders are totalling a value of EUR 1.8 billion for 201 trains, including supply of spare parts and the maintenance of 56 of the trains for 15 years. The trains, part of Alstom’s Coradia proven platform, will allow Renfe to transport at least 20% more passengers per hour through the country’s busiest railway hubs, including Madrid and Barcelona. They will each be 100 metres long and have a total capacity of 900 passengers. They boast an innovative mixed-configuration design, with both single and double-deck cars, designed specifically to meet the evolving mobility needs of major urban centres. All the trains will be manufactured at Alstom's manufacturing site in Santa Perpetua, Barcelona. To carry out this project, the site is undergoing an unprecedented investment and digitalisation plan, which includes the creation of the biggest automatised workshop within the Alstom Group. Fully developed in line with eco-design criteria, from the raw materials selection to traction systems, all the new trains for Renfe will be a benchmark in sustainable operations, thanks to optimal energy efficiency during operation and a recyclability rate of over 98% at the end of its service life. The design of the new trains enables maximum capacity for passengers, thanks to innovative interior configuration and flexible spaces. Numerous access doors and large distribution halls facilitate the entry and exit of passengers, allowing a decrease in station stop times. The trains offer universal accessibility, Wi-Fi connectivity and dedicated areas for bicycles and pushchairs. Alstom’s proven technology also expands availability and line usage via more efficient traction systems and the latest generation of train control technology.
