Alstom signed a contract with Algeria’s Société Nationale des Transports Ferroviaires (SNTF) to supply 17 Coradia Polyvalent intercity trains. The first train will be delivered in January 2018.

The investment is part of SNTF’s program to modernize and extend its network. The trains will link lgiers to destinations such as Oran, Annaba, Constantine and Béchar.

The Coradia Polyvalent for Algeria is a dual-mode train (diesel and electric, 25 kV) able to travel at speeds up to 99 mph. The train has six carriages and provides capacity for 265 passengers.

Coradia Polyvalent meets the needs of SNTF and its passengers. It is adapted to the environmental conditions of the country (sand, external temperatures) and has a highly efficient air conditioning system. The train also has a fully low floor for easy access and movement on board. Accessible to everyone, particularly passengers with reduced mobility, it respects the latest TSI1 PRM standards.

Finally, the train’s design and highly efficient motors eliminate noise and vibration for unparalleled comfort.
