CAF fined for late delivery of Italian EMUs
Friday, May 09, 2014



CAF has been issued with a €4.5m penalty by the Italian autonomous region of Friuli Venezia Giulia (FVG) for the late delivery of a fleet of eight ETR 563 EMUs.

The region placed a €45.6m order for the five-car trains in March 2011 and the first set was delivered to Italy in July 2012 for testing. The trains were due to enter service in early 2013, but have remained in store at Cervignano and Trieste due to what the regional transport councilor for transport Maria Grazia Santoro describes as "the bureaucratic slowness of other institutions."

The contract between CAF and the FVG government stipulated that the trains must be ready for use upon delivery, with Authorisation to Place Into Service from Italy's National Railway Safety Agency (ANSF). However, certification has still not been completed and the trains are not expected to enter service until early next year, although the regional government says it is working with CAF to conclude the process as quickly as possible.

The FVG government is due to award a new 15-year operating contract for regional services this year, which will see the new trains replace 40-year-old Ale 801 EMUs.

Four of the new CAF trains will be equipped to operate cross-border services into Austria and Slovenia

More double-deck trains for Trenord
Friday, May 09, 2014



FERROVIENORD, Italy, has signed a contract worth around €100m with AnsaldoBreda for seven additional TSR six-car double-deck EMUs, which will be used on regional services in Lombardy by Trenord, the company's joint venture with Trenitalia.

The order is an option from a contract signed last year for seven TSR sets. Delivery of the additional trains is expected to begin in January 2015.

Ferrovienord has already received a total of 78 TSR trains, which were delivered by AnsaldoBreda in several batches between 2006 and 2012

Elia takes charge as FS reports successful year
30 May 2014

ITALY: RFI Chief Executive Michel Mario Elia has been nominated as the next Chief Executive of Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane, in succession to Mauro Moretti who was named head of the Finmeccanica group in April. The appointment was announced at the FS Group annual shareholders meeting in Roma on May 29, subject to ratification by the group’s board of directors.

Professor Marcello Messori, Director of the School of European Political Economy at LUISS Guido Carli University in Roma, was appointed as the new President of FS Group, and several existing directors were re-elected to the board, with the addition of Daniela Carosio and Simonetta Giordani.

The meeting also approved the FS Group financial results for 2013, reporting a 207% increase in net profit to €460m. FS said it was the sixth consecutive year of positive results, with the increased profit attributable in part to a 12% increase in operating revenues to exceed €83bn for the first time. At the same time, operating costs fell slightly to € 63bn.

‘The 2013 performance and the achievement of all the objectives of the 2011-15 Industrial Plan, despite the continuing national and international economic crisis, confirm the sound structural reorganisation process that the management has undertaken since 2007’, said FS, adding that ‘the stronger financial solidity of Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane’ provided a firm foundation on which to achieve ‘the yet more challenging’ objectives in the 2014-17 plan approved in February

High speed line and classic line side by side in Orvieto, half-way between Florence and Rome.
Almost an aerial, but in fact taken from the fortress of this fantastic hilltop city
