On 7 February 2023 Alstom has been awarded a new contract worth more than 230 million EUR to supply 25 additional Coradia Nordic regional EMUs to Norske tog. This is the second order resulting from Alstom’s landmark 1.8 billion EUR framework agreement with Norske tog, signed in January 2022.
The first order of 30 200 km/h six-car units is currently in production, with deliveries expected to begin end of 2025. The new units, which are currently being ordered, should be running on Norwegian rails from 2027.
Norske tog’s new regional trains of Class 77 will operate as a commuter and fast rail services between Ski and Stabekk in the greater Oslo region. The expanding fleet of trains will ensure improved transport services throughout the busy region. The trains will be equipped with Alstom’s ETCS OBUs, but will be also capable of operating on tracks with the Norwegian old ATP.
Alstom will assemble the trains for Norske tog at its site in Salzgitter. Several French works are involved in the project, including Tarbes for traction systems, Ornans for the motors, Villeurbanne for signalling systems and Petit-Quevilly for electrical transformers.
