The train was built specifically for operation in Romania, and is fully functional but its interior will be completed in Romania in accordance with specific requests from infrastructure manager CFR SA. This work will be completed in early 2017.

The project also includes the modernisation and resignalling of the 170km Sighișoara – Simeria line, which will also be equipped with Alstom’s ERTMS Level 2 solution, Atlas 200.

The Coradia Polyvalent which can run at a maximum speed of 160km/h on both electrified and non-electrified lines will be used to test and measure the performances of the supplied systems.
