The ETR 1000 is the train manufactured by Hitachi Rail Italy, on behalf of the Italian State Railways designed to reach a top speed of 400 km/h and suitable to operate on the European network. It is a new technological jewel made in Italy able to shorten times and distances.
The aerodynamic design and the state of the art solutions for energy saving, beyond ensuring unmatched operational efficiency, guarantee to the ETR 1000 more than a record: the fastest train ever mass-produced in Europe, with the best acceleration, noiseless, less vibrations and low environmental impact.
The reduced aerodynamic resistance, the result of simulations and studies conducted in the wind tunnel, limit the energy consumption and the noise. The use of light alloys for vehicle carshells and for the furniture, beyond providing an optimal ratio mass/power, will allow at the end of the life of the vehicles the material recovery with reduced impact on the environment. Hitachi Rail Italy is leader of the project. Bombardier is the partner.
Further distinctive features of the frecciarossa 1000:
|Conception of “open tube” spaces through provision of technical equipment on the roof and underbody|
|Highly modular interiors with easy reconfiguration through rails on the floor|
|Evolved Information system for passengers|
|Indoor LED Lighting|
|High thermal and acoustic insulation|
|New diagnosis system for maintenance “on condition”|
The most beautiful train in the world stems from a design-oriented eco-design: high performance with 85% of recyclable materials and 95% renewable materials.
