This is the first project in which CAF units will be supplied for the RER network in the Paris metropolitan area, one of the largest transport administrations in Europe.
This attests to CAF’s clear commitment to the French market, where it has executed a significant amount of contracts over recent years.
Of these contracts, those worthy of mention include the contract secured for the operator SNCF at the end of 2019 for the supply of 28 trains with an option for an additional 75.
These will serve the Paris-Clermont and Paris-Limoges-Toulouse lines, with the contract amounting to approximately 700 million euros.
Other noteworthy projects include the supply of trams for the cities of Nantes, Besançon and St. Etienne, as well as the rehabilitation of the fleet of trains running on line D of the Lyon metro and the supply of dualtype electric locomotives which CAF is currently manufacturing at the plant located in Bagnères de Bigorre (Hautes-Pyrénées), France.
