Alstom will supply Swedish Transport Authority Östgötatrafiken AB with eight new Coradia Nordic regional trains as part of a frame agreement signed in 2008.

The 50 million euro order brings the total number of Coradia Nordic trains ordered by Östgötatrafiken to 13.

The new Coradia Nordic X61 regional trains, which are fitted with equipment to blast away snow and icy typical to the Scandinavian climate, will replace older trains on the Östgöta railway network.

Delivery is planned for early 2015.

Paul Hakansson, chief executive of Östgötatrafiken, said: “With this new order, Östgötatrafiken will be offering modern, comfortable and efficient trains to its passengers. We are pleased of the renewed trust from the operator which reaffirms our leading position in the supply of regional trains in Sweden.

“The new and modern trains from Alstom have contributed to a higher level of customer satisfaction and we are looking forward to be able to increase the railway traffic in the area with these new trains.”
