Alstom Begins Delivery of Coradia Stream EMUs for Veneto and Liguria

The first Italian region to place an order under the 2016 framework agreement was Emilia Romagna for 47 units. Of these 14 trains are already in passenger service.

Trenitalia’s Relaunch Effort

Trenitalia (FS Italian Group) has initiated a wider plan for development of the regional transport. These new trains are a part of that effort. In total, Trenitalia plans to invest 6 billion euros, bringing in 600 new trains. This will lead to a renewal of 80 percent of Trenitalia’s fleet over 5 years. The value and size of this relaunch effort make it an unprecedented undertaking for Italy.
