Alstom has signed a contract worth approximately €100 million (£85m) to manufacture and maintain battery-electric trains for a line in Germany.
Running until 2032, the agreement will see it deliver 11 Coradia Continental battery-electric trains for use on the Leipzig-Chemnitz route on behalf of Verkehrsverbund Mittelsachsen, with the support of Zweckverband für den Nahverkehrsraum Leipzig - these are the two authorities responsible for the line.
The battery-powered trains, which will be built at Alstom's German site of Salzgitter, in Lower Saxony, will bridge the 80 kilometres of non-electrified line between the cities of Chemnitz and Leipzig from 2023.
