Alstom commissioned the AGV high-speed train for NTV five years ago on the Naples-Milan route. Today, the 25 AGV composing NTV fleet have run 60 million kilometres and transported over 40 million passengers, providing full satisfaction thanks to the quality of the services offered, the comfort of the train and its reliability. 

AGV is part of Alstoms Avelia range of high-speed trains. Able to run at commercial speeds of up to 360 km per hour, the AGV is equipped with a distributed traction system, tested at 574.8km/h in 2007 which set the last world speed record on rail. Featuring a futuristic and elegant aerodynamic nose, as well as the most modern technologies for very-high speed, the AGV won the Design Award 2013 for companies that have improved quality of life. Alstoms services teams are in charge of the maintenance of the 25 AGV.italo for a period of 30 years, ensuring full reliability and availability. The AGV was designed and manufactured in La Rochelle (France) and Savigliano (Italy) with the involvement of other Italian sites of Sesto San Giovanni and Bologna. 

During these five years, the AGV.italo has consolidated its presence in Italy: new destinations have been added, including Verona, Brescia and Ferrara, the daily races have been increased and the trains stop at the main Italian railway stations of Rome Termini, Milan Centrale and Torino Porta Nuova. In order to expand its current network and respond to the increasing demand for new routes and higher frequencies, NTV has decided to enlarge its fleet of high-speed trains. The private Italian operator ordered 12 Pendolino trains from Alstom with associated maintenance services, which brings up the NTV fleet to a total of 37 Avelia trains. 

The Avelia range is based on 4 current flagship products Pendolino, Euroduplex, Liberty and AGV representing the culmination of more than 35 years of expertise and more than 1,050 trains in service around the world.
