CAF to supply trams in Lisbon, Portugal [free access]

April 23, 2021

Spain-based Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles (CAF) has secured a contract to supply 15 Urbos trams in the city of Lisbon, Portugal. The contract also includes the supply of five years of maintenance services. The new trams will be deployed on Line 15 to increase its capacity. The contract is valued at EUR43 million.


The one-way, five-module unit Urbos tram will operate at a maximum speed of 70 km per hour. The 28.5-metre-long trams will feature one driver cab and will have low floors to facilitate passenger access. The vehicles will be manufactured so that they are prepared for future retrofitting of onboard energy-storage solutions. The tram’s technology also enables catenary-free tram operation to protect architecturally sensitive areas while also providing transport energy efficiency benefits.
