Alstom earns French train order

The SNCF, on behalf of the Pays de la Loire Region in France, placed an order with Alstom to supply five regional trains from the Coradia Polyvalent range.

The Pays de Loire Region now operates 54 Alstom regional trains and has already ordered 15 Coradia Polyvalent trains with an average seating capacity of 216: 10 hybrid dual-voltage trainsets and five electric dual-voltage trainsets.

In addition, the Pays de la Loire Region also ordered 24 Citadis Dualis tram-trains, some of which have been in service on the Nantes-Clisson line since June 2011. This order corresponds to an option exercised under the framework contract financed by the French regions, signed with the SNCF on October 27, 2009.

The first Regiolis train off the production line at the Alstom plant in Reichshoffen was presented to the French regions and the SNCF on June 14, 2011. The test phases are currently under way, in accordance with the project schedule.

The first deliveries are due in 2013.
