Alstom submits a bid to construct 100 Vande Bharat trainsets out of aluminium

The Sonepat-produced trainsets will be lighter and more energy-efficient than conventional steel-built trains.

While other significant participants in the sector passed on this procurement, French multinational rolling stock manufacturer Alstom and Hyderabad-based Medha Servo Drives submitted a bid to build 100 aluminium Vande Bharat trainsets in collaboration with Swiss giant Stadler.

To be manufactured in Sonepat, the trainsets will be lighter than traditional steel-make trains and more energy efficient.

Due to a lack of both the necessary technology and materials, India does not have any aluminium trains. With this project, that will alter.
