Alstom Regiolis Trainset Reaches End of Waranty
Two years after the first deliveries, Alstom is celebrating the first end of the general warranty of an Alstom Regiolis (Coradia Polyvalent) trainset, two years following the first deliveries to rail operator SNCF. The Regiolis is also celebrating the milestone of having reached more than 10 million kilometres of commercial service.
The first end of warranty relates to a Regiolis Picardy dual-mode trainset consisting of 6 cars. 137 Regiolis trainsets are in operation in eight regions of France. The trainsets all benefit from Alstom’s after-sales teams who ensure corrective maintenance, availability and reliability of the trains on site.
The Coradia Polyvalent is part of Alstom’s Coradia range of trains. It has a modular design which can be adapted to meet the needs of any organising authority and type of use be is suburban, regional or intercity. It is also available in electric or dual mode, and different carriage configurations. It delivers maximum comfort for passengers on long or short journeys, improving the passenger experience with cutting edge technology.
Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, Senior Vice-President of Alstom France, said:
“This first end of warranty two years after the delivery of the first trains is a great success which attests to the reliability of our train and the excellent cooperation between the teams of SNCF and Alstom. Train availability for the operator and passenger comfort are our priority. Regiolis has demonstrated that it is perfectly adapted both to daily journeys and long trips.”
Coradia Polyvalent Production
The Coradia Polyvalent has created 4000 jobs in France relating to its production, creating jobs for both Alstom and its suppliers. Of Alstom’s 12 sites in France, six are involved in the project – Reichshoffen for the design and assembly, Ornans for the motors, Le Creusot for the bogies, Tarbes for the traction, Villeurbanne for the onboard electronics and Saint-Ouen for the design.
