Bombardier wins 10-year Italian contract

Posted on December 16, 2014

Bombardier Transportation won a 10-year contract to maintain the Rome-based Trenitalia's fleet of 50 V300ZEFIRO very high-speed trains, known in Italy as the Frecciarossa 1000. One of the most important fleet maintenance contracts awarded in Italy in recent years, the contract will be executed in association with Bombardier's consortium partner AnsaldoBreda, an Italian rail transport engineering firm.

Bombardier Transportation's share of the contract is valued at approximately $191 million.

Manufactured in partnership with AnsaldoBreda, the Frecciarossa 1000 is the newest member of the Bombardier ZEFIRO family of high-speed trains. With a top commercial speed of up to approximately 223 miles per hour, the V300ZEFIRO is the fastest train in Europe and its advanced, high acceleration delivers excellent travel times, even on winding routes.

It is also fully interoperable, meaning passengers can cross European borders without having to change trains. The V300ZEFIRO can also be ada

pted for use on networks in many other non-European countries.
