ABB has won an order worth $25 million from train manufacturer Alstom Transport to supply its latest generation of traction transformers for the new Régiolis regional trains run by the French National Railways (SNCF).

The traction transformers are extremely compact and are equipped with an integrated cooling system to support the modular Régiolis train design. This single-level, low-floor regional train allows passengers easy access and all-point visibility for improved security. It can travel at speeds up to 160 kph and is available in both electric and hybrid versions, operating at two voltage levels (15 kV and 25 kV).The train incorporates eco-friendly materials and consumes around 15 percent less energy than some of its counterparts.
