June 24, 2020

Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles (CAF) has secured two agreements for the extension of contracts to supply trams for Amsterdam and Stockholm, and a new contract to supply metro trains for Naples. The aggregate value of these three deals is EUR100 million. CAF has also secured a contract to supply driverless light metro trains for the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) in London. The value of this deal has not been disclosed.


CAF has secured a framework agreement from Ente Autonomo Volturno (EAV), the railway management authority of Campania Region, to supply 10 metro trains for the Piscinola–Aversa Centro metro line in Naples. The contract also includes the supply of depot parts and the provision of maintenance services for a period of three years.


CAF has secured a contract from Gemeentelijk Vervoerbedrijf (GVB), the public transport operator in Amsterdam, to supply nine Urbos trams to increase the capacity of the city’s tram network. The order has been placed as the first option on a contract signed in September 2016. The original option includes the delivery of an initial 63 bidirectional low-floor trams by 2022, with options for delivery of up to 60 additional trams.


CAF has secured a contract from Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL) to supply 10 Urbos trams for the tram network in Stockholm. The order has been placed under a framework agreement signed in late 2010 that included a firm order for 15 trams with options for up to 121 additional trams. These low-floor bidirectional trams have the capacity to accommodate 221 passengers.


CAF has secured a contract from Transport for London (TfL) to design, manufacture, and supply 43 five-car driverless light metro trains for DLR. The contract also includes technical support services and the supply of spare parts. The first train is expected to commence service in 2023. Of the total order, 33 of the trains will be used to replace the oldest rolling stock currently in service, and the remaining 10 will be used to expand the train capacity and services.
