In 2011, CAF signed a contract with the Friuli Venecia Giulia region to supply 8 electric trains to run on their Trenitalia operated regional lines. These units form a part of the Civity family, a range of low floor modular trains that meet the requirements of today’s most important European operators and clients.

This unit consists of 5 cars for mass passenger transport, with a floor height of 600 mm, facilitating train access from any platform type. The train also includes two places for persons with reduced mobility in wheelchairs and a lift providing easy access to the vehicle for said passenger.

Subsequently, both parties have signed a new contract for the supply of a further 4 trains, in this case, dual voltage Civity trains. These units are designed to run on the Austrian and Slovenian trans-border networks with the Friuli-Venecia Giulia region.
