MADRID, 19-Aug-2016 — /EuropaWire/ — Sistema de Transporte Colectivo, the transportation organization of the Federal District Government, has awarded CAF México with a contract for the supply of 10 pneumatic tyred-trains for Line 1 in the Mexico City Metro. The contract stands at approximately €164 million.
This contract is part of the vehicle and infrastructure refurbishment program implemented by the Metro, with the first units being planned for delivery in the first half of 2018.
CAF has been involved in Mexican railroad projects since 1992, and has supplied since a large number of units for several Metro lines in the City of Mexico, along with the provision of maintenance services.
Another highlight of this close partnership with the Mexican Capital Metro is the 15 year PPS contract (Service Provision Contract) awarded to CAF in late 2009, which included the leasing of 30 Metro units plus comprehensive train maintenance for the whole term.
In addition, the passenger railroad transit project of the Buenavista-Cuautitlán commuter line in Mexico City, D.F., including vehicle supply and concession operation for a 50 year term, is being operated from 2008. This is coupled with the current intercity train project which will link Mexico City with Toluca. This project includes the supply of 30 Electric Units as well as part of the signalling systems. The Company is also actively involved in the project’s integration engineering and coordination.
Thus, this new contract consolidates CAF even more in the Mexican market as the leading train supplier for the Mexico City Metro, and further upholds the Company’s position as one of the leading suppliers of railroad vehicles in the American Continent, with relevant projects in operation in the USA, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador and Chile.
