21 TRAM CONTRACT AWARDED TO CAF BY THE CITY OF LUXEMBOURG

The LUXTRAM Board of Directors has awarded CAF with the supply of 21 Trams for the City of Luxembourg worth approximately €83 million.

 

The competitive bidding process was launched in late 2014 and includes the removal of the overhead line from the Red Bridge to Luxembourg's Central Station. After analysis of all bids submitted, CAF obtained the highest technical score coupled with the most economically advantageous tender (MEAT).

 

The contract includes the supply of 21 high capacity trains for up to 450 passengers with the possibility of several extension phases.

 

The first track sections will be laid on the first quarter of 2016, and the first train is scheduled to be delivered in early 2017, with the objective to guarantee the start of revenue service on the line stretch from Luxexpo to the Red Bridge in the second half of 2017.
