Franco Beretta, President and Managing Director, Bombardier Transportation Italy, said:

“We are very pleased to continue our long-term collaboration with our customer Trenitalia with this new agreement for integrated logistics support services. This tailored contract will ensure continuous availability of consumable spare parts and repairable components for the ETR500 Frecciarossa fleet.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to Italy’s rail industry, especially our Bombardier employees, as they play their part in supporting our nation during these unprecedented times.”

ETR500 Frecciarossa Fleet

Trenitalia’s ETR500 trains are very high-speed electric multiple units. A consortium consisting of Bombardier, Alstom and AnsaldoBreda (now Hitachi Rail Italy) manufactured the fleet of 58 trains. They have been carrying passengers in Italy since the mid-nineties. Since 2008 they have been branded as ‘Frecciarossa’ (red arrow) trains.
