Customised to operate in severe climatic conditions
Alstom’s Citadis Spirit life-sized mock-up has been unveiled by the City of Ottawa and OC Transpo. City of Ottawa will display the full-sized mock-up of the future light rail train for the O-Train Confederation Line at Aberdeen Pavilion in Lansdowne Park during February and March.
Alstom is supplying 34 Citadis Spirit vehicles and 30 years of maintenance services to the Rideau Transit Group that was selected to design, build, finance, and maintain phase 1 of the O-Train Confederation Line. This first phase comprises thirteen stations along a 12.5-kilometre route, with 10 kilometres running at ground level and 2.5 kilometres underground. The O-Train Confederation Line is expected to begin full revenue service in spring 2018.
The City of Ottawa is the first city in North America to choose Alstom’s Citadis Spirit as its light rail vehicle. The Citadis Spirit is based on Alstom’s Citadis range of tramways and builds on the experience of more than 1,900 Citadis in service around the world in 49 cities.
Customised for the needs of the North American market, the Citadis Spirit is designed to maximise availability and to operate in severe climatic conditions, offers superior accessibility and passenger flow thanks to full low floor architecture, and can operate on either a 750 V or 1,500 V power supply. Designed to run up to 100 km/h, the vehicles for Ottawa are fitted with panoramic windows and winterized air conditioning systems, to ensure passenger comfort on every journey.
