January 2, 2018

Spain-based CAF has secured a EUR55-million contract from Budapesti Közlekedési Központ (BKK) to supply 26 trams in Budapest, Hungary. The company will supply 21 five-module trams and five nine-module trams. The delivery is scheduled to begin in February 2019.


The contract is the second extension of a previous EUR90-million contract secured in March 2014 to supply 37 Urbos low-floor bi-directional trams with an option for 87 more trams. Under the first extension, CAF had supplied 10 trams at a cost of EUR25 million.


The trams will be bi-directional and low-floor. The vehicles are designed to operate on standard gauge tracks (1,435 mm) at a speed of 50 km/hr. The five-module trams will be 34 metres long, have capacity for 326 passengers and feature four double doors on each side. The nine-module trams will be 56 metres long, have capacity for 562 passengers and feature seven double doors on each side.


In addition, CAF has secured a EUR14.5-million contract from Euskotren Trena (Euskotren) to supply seven seven-section light-rail vehicles (LRVs) and expand three five-section LRVs to seven-section LRVs for the Vitoria light-rail network in Spain. The new vehicles will be bi-directional, be 100 per cent low-floor and have capacity to carry 400 passengers.


Further, Vectia Mobility, a subsidiary of the CAF Group, has secured a EUR3.3-million contract from Tuvisa to supply 10 hybrid city buses. Tuvisa is the municipal company in charge of urban transport in Vitoria-Gasteiz.
