ITALY's new open-access high-speed rail operator, NTV, has signed a contract with Interporto Campano to build a maintenance depot in Nola near Naples for its fleet of 25 AGV trains on order from Alstom. The 150,000m2 depot will cost about Euros 90 million to build.
The depot, which will employ about 300 people, will have 11 tracks totalling 12km. The maintenance workshops will occupy 55,000m2.
"The signing of contract for the construction of the workshops represents a milestone for our project," says NTV's managing director Mr Giuseppe Sciarrone. NTV plans to launch its high-speed services in 2011 from Turin, Milan, and Venice in northern Italy via Florence to Rome, Naples and Bari in the south.
