Östgötatrafiken orders additional Alstom EMUs Alstom/ Kasper Dudzig

SWEDISH regional public transport authority Östgötatrafiken has awarded Alstom a contract to supply a further three X61 Coradia Nordic 15kV ac EMUs.

 

The four-car 74.3m-long trains have capacity for 510 passengers and will supplement the authority’s existing fleet of 15 sets.

Alstom is currently delivering 30 trains to Skånetrafiken, and this order will be an add on to that production line, particularly for manufacturing of bodyshells.

The trains will be built at Alstom’s plant in Salzgitter, Germany, and will be delivered in Spring 2019.
