Finmeccanica unit AnsaldoBreda has won a EUR 250 million contract to maintain Trenitalia’s (Gruppo FS Italiane) new fleet of Frecciarossa 1000 high speed trains. The V300Zefiro, built by Bombardier Transportation and AnsaldoBreda, is capable of service speeds up to 360 km/h.
The ten-year contract includes the preventive, first-level and corrective maintenance on board of the vehicles, with the aim of optimizing the reliability and the availability of the trains. The service will be carried out at Trenitalia facilities in Naples and in Milan.
The eight-car Electrical Multiple Units (EMU) are manufactured in AnsaldoBreda’s Pistoia plant and will enter into operations next year on the Italian High Speed network.
