Alstom has announced that it has agreed a £146m contract to supply six hydrogen fuel cell trains to FNM (Ferrovie Nord Milano).
There is an option for eight more trains, with the first one expected to be delivered within 36 months.
These new hydrogen trains will be based on the Coradia Stream platform.
The trains for FNM will be equipped with the same technology as is used by the Coradia iLint.
Alstom recently announced that Austria had approved their Coradia iLint Hydrogen train.
“We are immensely proud to be introducing hydrogen train technology to Italy, and we recognise the trust placed in us by our Italian customer. This development confirms Alstom’s role in defining the future of mobility. These trains, together with the Coradia iLint that have already proven themselves in commercial service in Germany, represent another major step in the transition towards global sustainable transport systems. I take this opportunity to congratulate FNM for demonstrating that they are a leader in this area,” says Gian Luca Erbacci, Senior Vice President of Alstom Europe.
