ARSENALE Express S.p.A. in Rome has commissioned Knorr-Bremse to equip two Orient Express La Dolce Vita trains.
Starting in the third quarter of this year, Knorr-Bremse will supply state-of-the-art braking technology as well as entrance, climate control and sanitary systems.
Harald Schneider, member of the management board of Knorr-Bremse Rail Vehicle Systems and responsible for Knorr-Bremse Italy, said: “In the luxury rail segment, tradition and modernity are comingtogether in a unique way. Knorr-Bremse is helping to achieve this by providing a range of top-quality, environmentally friendly technologies. We are delighted that ARSENALE Express S.p.A. is relying on our innovations and systems expertise to equip its premium fleet.”
Simone Mantero, managing director of Knorr-Bremse Rail Systems Italy, adds: “We’re proud that ARSENALE Express S.p.A. has identified Knorr-Bremse as a trusted partner for this project, which truly exemplifies the excellence of Made in Italy.
“We’re looking forward to supporting passengers with our various system solutions as they enjoy a unique and exclusive travel experience to a broad range of iconic destinations across Italy.”
Just recently, Knorr-Bremse won a major order for multiple train subsystems from Hitachi Rail in Italy, among them coupling systems for passenger trains destined for the Milan region.
The ARSENALE Express S.p.A. order represents yet another prestigious project for a Knorr-Bremse customer in Italy. With its dynamic development and potential for future business, Italy is one of Europe’s most important and promising rail markets for Knorr-Bremse.
