Projektträger – zwischengeschaltetes Finanzinstitut

Eurostar International Limited



Purchase of 10 high speed trainsets, each with a seating capacity of 850+ passengers, intended to replace existing trains on Eurostar’s London-Paris and London–Brussels routes, and technically capable also of operating on other high speed rail lines in Europe. Services operated by Eurostar are on the TEN-T network.


The project will increase the reliability, efficiency and quality of rail services, and thereby promote sustainable transport solutions in line with broader EU objectives in areas such as energy efficiency and climate change.
