Alstom Transport Germany is looking back on a good year 2014: the company has delivered a total 201 newly produced rail vehicles from its Salzgitter plant in 2014[1]. In addition, Alstom for the first time ever has performed five successful operational start-ups in parallel and also obtained the necessary homologations from the German Federal Railway Authority on time in 2014.

“The year 2014 is representative of Alstom Transports’ expertise in many fields such as the development, manufacturing, homologation and handover of rail vehicles. The delivery of more than 200 regional trains as well as the operational start-up of new networks constitute a milestone that makes this a record year for the company in this regard,” says Didier Pfleger, Vice President of Alstom Transport for Germany and Austria and spokesperson for the management board of Alstom Transport Deutschland GmbH.

"Our focus for the year to come is to continue working on further improving the company’s competitiveness and profitability”, says Dr. Martin Lange, as member of the board of Alstom Deutschland AG responsible for Transport and member of the management board of Alstom Transport Deutschland GmbH.

The Coradia Lint diesel multiple unit was the most frequently delivered train in 2014, with Alstom handing over a total of 141 trains for Netinera, Deutsche Bahn and Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen (LNVG). These include the regional trains operated by vlexx GmbH on behalf of NETINERA Deutschland GmbH, which are being used in Rhineland-Palatinate, Hesse and Saarland and connect cities such as Mainz and Rüsselsheim with Frankfurt Airport via their routes between Frankfurt and Saarbrücken as well as Koblenz and Kaiserslautern.

The trains for the Cologne Diesel Network were also put into operation. This fleet of vehicles is being used by DB Regio on lines in the south of North Rhine-Westphalia as well as in the bordering state of Rhineland-Palatinate in the Cologne and Eifel regions.

The new Lints for LNVG are being used in the Southeast Lower Saxony Diesel Network on the Hannover‐Hildesheim‐Bad Harzburg, Uelzen‐Braunschweig‐ Wolfenbüttel‐ Vienenburg‐ Bad Harzburg/Goslar and Lüneburg‐Dannenberg lines and are operated by erixx GmbH.

In addition, Coradia Continental electric multiple units were delivered to Deutsche Bahn. DB Regio NRW GmbH has been using new regional trains for the city train line S5 from Dortmund to Hagen and S8 from Hagen via Wuppertal and Dusseldorf to Mönchengladbach within the Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr (VRR). ET430 trains have been homologated and delivered by Alstom in Salzgitter for regional transport in the Frankfurt and Stuttgart metropolitan regions. Furthermore, Coradia Nordic trains have been handed over to the operators Skanetrafiken and Östgötatrafiken in Scandinavia and DT5 underground trains to Hamburger Hochbahn.

Alstom has also received the series homologations and operating licences for 91 new Coradia Lint regional trains from the German Federal Railway Authority as early as half a year prior to the scheduled start of operation. These include the 63 regional trains for vlexx GmbH and 28 Coradia Lint trains for LNVG. Homologation was obtained for the trains for the Cologne Diesel Network back at the end of 2013.

[1] Compared to about 120 140 delivered trains a year so far.
