fyra manufacturer looses again
Fyra manufacturer AnsaldoBreda is not allowed access to three technical reports that the NS and the Belgian NMBS have used for their decision to quit with the V250 trains.That is the result of an appeal to the Amsterdam Court. The court in Utrecht had previously ruled against the Italian train builder.
According to the court these reports were prepared for internal use by the NS and NMBS and may contain sensitive business information. These reports need not be shared with third parties, ruled the court.
The NS and NMBS are embroiled in a legal dispute with AnsaldoBreda. After the loss of a base plate, the trains were taken out of service. Further investigation revealed there was more wrong with the Fyra trains.
Netherlands and Belgium now want to come back on the purchase agreement.
