KNORR-BREMSE announced on February 25 that it had signed a long-term framework contract with Alstom to supply braking systems, doors and air-conditioning equipment for Coradia Stream EMUs recently ordered by operators in Germany, Italy and Denmark.

The contract is worth more than €100m and runs until 2025, with an optional extension until 2028. 

The contract covers equipment for the framework contract for up to 150 EMUs ordered by Trenitalia in mid-2021, 34 partially double-deck trains ordered by Lower Saxony Transport Authority (LNVG) in March 2021 for the Express Cross Bremen Lower Saxony regional network, and a framework contract for up to 150 single-deck EMUs awarded by Danish State Railways (DSB) in June 2021.

The equipment for these fleets was ordered from Knorr-Bremse in the third quarter of 2021, with deliveries to Alstom taking place between 2022 and 2024, excluding options. 

Knorr-Bremse will supply electro-pneumatic braking systems, including the firm’s PistonSupply Eco oil-free compressor, the FlexControl flexible brake control unit, the SysControl electronic brake control system, electromagnetic track brakes and sanding systems.

Austria-based Knorr-Bremse subsidiary IFE will supply door systems, while Spain-based Merak will provide the air-conditioning systems for the new trains.
