Alstom has shipped the first of the 17 Coradia Polyvalent ordered by the Algerian national rail transport company SNTF (Société Nationale des Transports Ferroviaires dAlgérie) on 29 July 2015. The train will be transported to the port of Savone (Italy) where it will embark in the direction of the port of Algiers (Algeria). It is expected to arrive on the 29 January 2018. The deliveries of the following trains will be carried out until July 2018. The trains, designed and manufactured at the Alstom site in Reichshoffen, France, will circulate in Algerias major cities.

"Today we celebrate the departure of the first Coradia train for Africa. We are proud to deliver this first train to the SNTF in Algeria. Thanks to the trust of our customer and the commitment of our teams, the delivery schedule has been perfectly respected and will continue until July 2018. With this project, we are happy to contribute to the development of mobility in this country," said Henri Bussery, General Manager of Alstom in Algeria.

The Coradia Polyvalent for Algeria is a mainline dual-mode train (diesel and electric-25kV) capable of running at speeds of 160 km/h. With a total length of 110 metres, the train has six cars and offers a capacity for 254 passengers including 60 in first class.

Coradia Polyvalent meets the requirements of the SNTF and its passengers. It is adapted to the country's climatic conditions (sand, high temperatures) and has a very efficient air conditioning system. The train also has a low floor to facilitate access and movement on board, notably for passengers with reduced mobility (PRM). Lastly, the train's design and powerful motorisation enable optimised operating conditions. The trains interior fittings are among the latest developments undertaken by SNTF and provide optimum travel comfort.

The Alstom site of Reichshoffen in France is responsible for the design, manufacture and validation of the 17 trains. Five other sites in France are involved in the project: Saint-Ouen for the design, Le Creusot for the bogies, Ornans for the engines and alternators, Tarbes for the traction chains and Villeurbanne for the on-board electronics and passenger information. Alstoms Coradia range or trains benefit from 30 years of experience, with more than 4 billion kilometres covered by 3,000 trains.
