Alstom has won the largest train tender in Danish rail history. As part of its landmark framework agreement with Danish State Railways (DSB) valued at 2.6 billion euros, the company won a first firm order of 100 Coradia Stream regional trains as well as a 15-year full-service maintenance agreement that amounts to a value of 1.4 billion euros. The framework agreement includes an additional 15 years of maintenance services and the possibility to order additional trainsets. Delivery of DSB’s new trains is scheduled to begin in fourth-quarter 2024.
