The train is 95 % recyclable
The new Alstom train “Jazz” can now be observed at the Firenze Santa Maria Novella railway station in Toscana region. This train is one of the regional trains ordered by Trenitalia to Alstom in November 2012, among which 12 are intended for Toscana region. The rest of the ordered trains will be sent until to end of 2015.
“Jazz” is the newest train generation of Alstom’s Coradia Meridian range designed for regional operators in Southern Europe, mainly in Italy. It is an Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) train that can run at a maximum speed of 160 km/h.
Its concentrated traction system, with two motor bogies, optimizes the electrical braking capability of the train allowing energy consumption and brake wear to be reduced. Designed to be eco-friendly, the train is 95 % recyclable.
Coradia Meridian regional trains are designed and manufactured by Alstom in Italy. Project development, most of the manufacturing as well as the certification, are done in Savigliano site in Cuneo.
The plant in Sesto San Giovanni (Milan) is responsible for the design and manufacturing traction systems and auxiliary switchers. Trainborne signalling systems are delivered by the Bologna site.
