CAF SIGNS THE RECENTLY AWARDED CONTRACT FOR THE SUPPLY OF COMMUTER UNITS IN THE NETHERLANDS

The contract amount is over €500M with extension options for additional trains. This project is the largest contract secured by CAF in Europe both as regards the number of cars and the contractual amount, and one of the largest in the history of the Company.

 

NS is the Dutch government owned Operator and one of the largest railway companies in the European continent. This project embodies the success of the Civity platform developed by CAF.

 

The trains will run all across Holland in the so called "Sprinter" services, and feature all the latest technical developments for energy saving, environmental friendliness, safety features and ease of access, being fully prepared for Persons with Reduced Mobility. It is estimated that the first trains will start to run on Dutch tracks in 2018.
