Five new trains ad high energy efficiency, as well as ecological, entering the EAV fleet, the first in operation one day in advance compared to what was initially assumed, the others are on the way by April 2023.
The route they work on is the Naples - Piedimonte Matese, the goal is to retire the old engines that are now worn out and expensive in terms of maintenance.
Ben 170 the places available for each car.
The EAV renewal plan and the question circumvesuviana
A good start, but EAV still has a long way to go starting from circumvesuviana, the company's true Achilles heel with a service that puts users and the company itself in serious difficulty.
40 trains are expected for the line circumvesuviana, while a new tender for 60 trains will start in December, but times are long.
In 5 years Vesuviana will turn the page, unfortunately we still have to suffer a littleUmberto De Gregorio, EAV President
De Luca, the governor of Campania, also intervenes, a region very involved in EAV affairs as it had to enter with capital integrations for a good 25 million given that, despite a positive balance sheet in 2019, due to the pandemic and the increase in energy costs EAV got into trouble again.
If we closed the Vesuviana for a year we would immediately do all the necessary work but this is not possible and therefore we will have to carry out a maintenance program staggered over timeVincenzo De Luca
