Bombardier Transportation Italy, a consolidated partner for every railway operator, operates in the rail transport system and focuses on the production of rolling stock, including sub-systems, major overhaul activities and maintenance assistance. The company has three production units: Rolling Stock, Service Execution and Rail Control Solutions (RCS). With more than 110 years of activity, Vado Ligure is the main production site; the first Italian electric locomotive was built here in 1908.
Known for the production of electric locomotives for freight and passenger transport, Bombardier’s scope in Italy also includes very high-speed trains, trams and regional trains, as well as aftersales activities including lifetime fleet maintenance. In 2015 Bombardier Transportation was certified as an entity in charge of maintenance (ECM)
To date, Bombardier Transportation Italy has produced 728 E464 locomotives, 50 ETR1000-V300 ZEFIRO very high-speed trains, and more than 200 TRAXX DC2 locomotives, all under full-service maintenance contracts. Some 50 new TRAXX DC3 locomotives were ordered in late 2017 and early 2018.
