SNCB is believed to be seeking up to €26m in compensation from the Italian company, although IRJ understands the case is still being developed and the final claim could be higher. It has been reported that the case will be heard at the Court of Justice at Utrecht in the Netherlands, where legal proceedings are due to start in September.

SNCB cancelled its order on May 31 citing what it described as "fundamental shortcomings with potentially serious effects with regards to both safety and reliability." Netherlands Railways (NS) announced in June that it would abandon its order for 16 trains, although NS Financial Services has not yet cancelled the contract.
