Alstom Coradia Nordic train.

SWEDEN: Greater Stockholm transport authority Storstockholms Lokaltrafik has placed a €440m order for Alstom to supply a further 46 Coradia Nordic electric multiple-units.

The contract announced on June 15 means SL has now ordered 129 Coradia Nordic EMUs under a framework agreement signed in 2002. Alstom has sold a total of 239 of the units across Sweden.

The six-car 160 km/h EMUs will be produced at Alstom's Salzgitter plant. They are to be delivered from 2016, allowing SL to replace older stock and expand its services.
