The 750V dc four-car articulated trains are being supplied by a consortium of Ansaldo STS and Hitachi Rail Italy under a €34.9m contract awarded by the City of Genoa in 2012, which was funded with the aid of a €5.9m contribution from the Italian government. The project includes upgrading of the line's existing depot at Dinegro to maintain the new fleet.

Each 39.1m-long train accommodates 48 seated passengers and 242 standees (at 6 passengers/m2).

The remaining six trains are due to be delivered by the end of the year.
