Prototype History: Alstom Prima is a family of modular diesel and electric locomotives. For the French market, the Prima has been delivered in electric version as SNCF BB 27000, BB 27300, and BB 37000, and in diesel version as BB 75000. One unit of an experimental quadruple voltage BB 47000 was built, but SNCF did not order the series.

Ordered in two batches in 1998 and 2002, they were delivered from November 2001 to February 2006. A total of 180 units have been produced. They have been designed for freight operations to renew the ageing CC 7000, CC 7100, BB 8100 and BB 12000.

Power output: 5,725 hp (4,200 kW)
Dual voltage: 25kV 50Hz AC / 1500V DC (2 pantographs)
