The shunting locomotives of group 225 were standard-gauge diesel locomotives and had been used for shunting operations across the Italian network since 1955. They were built as three models with different characteristics. In 1958 the Jenbacher Werke delivered two prototypes with different engines, which were added to the locomotive stock as 225.6098 and 225.6099. In 1960/61, a total of 20 series locomotives were built under licence at Officina Meccanica della Stranga in Padua and Jenbach Diesel Soc.r.l. in Bolzano, Italy. They were classified using the company numbers 225,6001 to 6020. A two-stroke diesel engine with hydraulic power transmission provided the drive for the locomotive. Its top speed was 30 km/h in shunting mode and 50 km/h in main-line operation.
