New tramway contracts for CAF in Belgium and Australia

The CAF Group has signed two new contracts for the delivery of Urbos trams. First off, the Flanders Transport Company, De Lijn (Belgium), has approved the purchase of 18 more trams from CAF. These new trams are the fifth batch in the contract concluded with CAF in October 2017, which comprises of the manufacturing and supply of up to 146 trams which are distributed into batches to be activated by the customer in due course.

At the same time, Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) has awarded CAF the supply of 4 Urbos 100 5-module trams for the city of Sydney, as well as all the relevant spare parts. These new units will be delivered in early 2023 and will be added to the current fleet comprising of 12 CAF Urbos units that have been running on the Inner West Light Rail Line since 2014.

Both contracts, amounting to a combined value of close to €100 million, corroborate once more the CAF Group’s leading position in the international tram market.
