The new hydrogen trains will be based on Alstom’s Coradia Stream regional train platform, which is dedicated to the European market and already being produced for Italy by Alstom’s main Italian sites.

The hydrogen powered Coradia Stream for FNM, will be equipped with the same fuel cell propulsion technology that was introduced to the world by the Coradia iLint.

The hydrogen Coradia Stream will maintain the high standards of comfort already appreciated by passengers of its electric version.

The hydrogen version will match the operational performance of diesel trains, including their range.
