Posted on October 15, 2009

Trenitalia (Italian Railways) awarded Bombardier Transportation a new order, worth approximately $383 million, to supply an additional 100 E464 electric locomotives. The contract also considers an option for a further 50 locomotives.

With these additional E464 locomotives, Trenitalia will be operating one of the largest single vehicle-type fleets in Europe, making it one of the first operators to benefit from considerably reduced operational and maintenance costs. Delivery of the locomotives is scheduled for between 2010 and 2012.

In addition to the locomotives being manufactured in Vado Ligure, the car bodies and Bombardier MITRAC propulsion equipment will be supplied respectively by Bombardier's sites in Wroclaw, Poland and Trápaga, Spain.
