Alstom awarded $2bn high-speed train contract

31 Aug 2016

Alstom has won a contract from US-based rail operator Amtrak to design and build 28 new high-speed trains. 

The $2 billion contract will see Alstom provide long-term technical support, and supply spare components and parts for maintenance of the new trains. 

The first train set prototype is expected to be ready in 2019, with revenue due to commence in 2021. 

By 2022, all train sets will be in-service and the current operational fleet will have been retired.
