Manufacturer of High-Speed Trains: Dutch Railways are Incompetent

Maurizio Manfellotto, the CEO of the Italian Ansaldo firm which built the high-speed Fyra trains, has appeared before the Dutch parliamentary inquiry committee. He said that NSFSC (the daughter company of the Dutch state railways, NS) which ordered the Fyra trains was totally incompetent and uncooperative. Manfellotto added that there was far too little time to test the trains.  He added that the problems which occurred and caused the withdrawal of the trains’ use were due to poor maintenance by NS.
