Stadler to supply 59 additional EMUs to Renfe, Spain [free access]

July 16, 2021

Renfe and Stadler have signed a EUR998 million contract for the supply of 59 high-capacity EMUs for the Cercanías commuter rail services. Stadler will supply 24 100-metre-long EMUs and 35 200-metre-long EMUs, as well as maintenance services and spare parts for 15 years.


The new trains will feature 900 seats, providing around 20 per cent more capacity than the existing fleet. Up to 10 doors and large vestibules will minimise passenger boarding and alighting times. The trains will be designed for passengers with reduced mobility, with spaces for bicycles and pushchairs. The fleet is part of the renewal of 50 per cent of the Cercanías and medium-distance fleets.


In March 2021, Stadler and Alstom had secured contracts with a combined value of EUR2.45 billion to manufacture 211 trains.
