Coradia Liner V160, the new generation of Alstom main line trains

  1. 1. ALSTOM Communication Coradia Liner v160 The new generation of Alstom main line trains Alstom is an expert in the field of regional and main line trains. The company has already sold 2,400 trains from its Coradia range, which have covered distances of more than 4 billion kilometres. In France, Alstom has supplied 55% of the regional trains in circulation since the regionalisation of the network in 1997. Thanks to its experience, combined with its expertise and industrial muscle in regional and main line trains, Alstom today offers operators and passengers a range of products based on the Coradia platform, perfectly adapted to their requirements: high-capacity trains that are reliable, available, easy to maintain, accessible and clean, optimising the overall cost of ownership for operators while maximising comfort for passengers. In October 2013, SNCF ordered 34 Coradia Liner V160 trains to renew the Corail trains on its Intercity lines. This new generation of main line trains was developed from the Coradia Polyvalent platform. Situated between a regional TER train and a TGV, its design embues it with a specific identity, increased comfort, a wider range of services and greater performance. The Coradia Polyvalent project The Coradia Polyvalent project saw the light in October 2009 with the signature of a framework contract between Alstom and SNCF for 100 trains, comprising the first binding part of the order, with the possibility of extending this to 1,000 trains for a total of approximately 7 billion euros. In its regional version, the new train was baptised Régiolis1 by the regions of France. To date, 285 Coradia Polyvalent trains have been ordered as part of the contract awarded to Alstom by SNCF in October 2009. These include 232 Coradia Polyvalent (for Régiolis) and 53 Coradia Liner trains. Resulting from the involvement of several actors of the French railway sector, the first commercial entry into service took place in April 2014. To date, Coradia Polyvalent has covered more than 20 million kilometres in commercial service, with a level of reliability and availability that complies with customer requirements. As a result, Coradia Liner benefits today from the experience gained with Coradia Polyvalent for Régiolis, as well as its robustness and its proven technical solutions. 1 SNCF brand PRESS KIT
  2. 2. ALSTOM Communication Coradia Liner v160, a project that involves the entire French rail industry The project generates more than 1,000 jobs with Alstom and over 3,000 with its suppliers. Six of the twelve Alstom sites in France are involved in the development and manufacture of the Coradia Liner v160 trains: Reichshoffen for the development and assembly of the trains, Le Creusot for the design and manufacture of the bogies, Ornans for the design and manufacture of the permanent magnet motors, Saint-Ouen for the definition of the design, Tarbes for the design and manufacture of the traction systems and Villeurbanne for the design and integration of the on-board electronic systems. Coradia Liner v160, a proven technical solution and increased comfort Coradia Liner V160 is available in two lengths (72 and 110 metres) and two types of motorisation (electric and dual-mode, i.e. thermal-electric). The trains can accommodate up to 269 passengers, of which 13% in first class, and travel at speeds of 160 km/h2 . The low floor throughout the train makes boarding much easier, in particular for people with reduced mobility; on-board movement is more fluid, with spacious passenger zones suitable for long-distance trips. New reclining seats feature fully-lined armrests with an electric socket and a coat hanger. The floor covering is specially designed to soften the ambient noise. Finally, large bay windows, partitioned areas and soft LED lighting enhance passengers’ feelings of comfort. The on-board service agents have access to their own dedicated area, designed with the same concern for comfort. The design of this new main line train, specified in advance by SNCF, leaves operators free to offer a large number of on-board services to passengers (meals brought to your seat,…). Coradia Liner v160, an accessible train for passengers with reduced mobility As well as its fully low floor without steps or stairs, ensuring fluid on-board circulation, Coradia Liner v160 is equipped with specific facilities to optimise accessibility for passengers with reduced mobility. The cars are equipped with automatic gap-fillers for wheelchair users, developed by Alstom teams. These consist of an electronic system and lasers which measure the distance between the vehicle and the platform, allowing the gap-filler to be deployed to the right length. For visually impaired passengers, all trains come equipped with a solution for automatic door location, developed by the Nancy company Phitech. Receptors and speakers installed on the cars capture the signal emitted by the remote control or mobile phone of the visually impaired passenger, broadcasting a voice message that enables him or her to locate the train door. Alstom works on all these solutions in close collaboration with SNCF and its Advisory Board, comprising members of the eight national associations for disabled people and people with reduced mobility. 2 The 34 Coradia Liner v160 trains ordered in 2013 are dual-mode and 110 metres long.
  3. 3. ALSTOM Communication Coradia Liner v160, partner of eco-mobility Alstom's main line trains are designed to reconcile efficiency, economic performance and sustainability. Coradia Liner v160 benefits from the latest technological innovations in this domain. The continuous reduction of energy consumption - and therefore CO2 emissions – is one of the priorities of this train. A reduction in weight, synchronous permanent magnet motors for traction combined with articulated architecture enable a reduction in energy consumption of about 30% compared to the diesel locomotives of the Corail trains. Furthermore, the regenerative braking system allows the energy produced during braking to be reused and injected into the national electricity grid, including in the form of direct current. The lifecycle of the trains, from design to recycling, represents an investment for the future because of their very long lifespan. Coradia Polyvalent is over 90% recoverable3 . From their conception, Alstom's trains have been designed in terms of their overall cost of ownership. Far upstream, the costs of acquisition, operation and maintenance and rehabilitation have been taken into account to minimise the expenses incurred over the 30 years of the train’s life. The layout of the roof-mounted equipment is conceived to ensure the protection of the equipment, thus limiting maintenance costs, while the main equipment (combustion engine-generator, traction, converters, air conditioning...) is more easily accessible to maintenance staff. Coradia Liner v160 is also fitted with redundant equipment (traction, auxiliaries and air conditioning for example) guaranteeing reliability and availability. Coradia After-Sales Service teams deployed all over France Deployed at the various customer sites, Alstom’s After-Sales Service teams are made up of experienced technicians in the fields of mechanics, electronics and I.T. They place their skills at the service of SNCF with a focus on two main missions: the first, to provide training to SNCF employees in driving the train, and the second, to provide corrective maintenance of the equipment once the trains are in commercial service, and this for the entire warranty period. The After-Sales Service is part of Alstom’s new service offer, Maintenance Platform in Operational Condition (PMCO), designed to optimise the maintenance and availability of all Coradia trains. Apart from the technical team assigned to customer depots, the after-sales service has access to a dedicated warehouse of spare parts, as well as Alstom's TrainTracer software, making it possible to monitor the train’s condition in real time and anticipate possible maintenance operations. The PMCO’s objective is to guarantee the fleet’s reliability and availability. To carry out the maintenance operations, the teams have access to spare parts from the SNCF depot in under 24 hours, as well as parts and maintenance tools from the central warehouse located on the Alstom site in Reichshoffen. 3 Recoverability refers to the reuse, recycling or any other action aiming to obtain reusable materials or energy from waste.
