CAF is awarded the Sao Paulo Metro project

The Sao Paulo State Government has reported that the Sao Paulo Metro has procured 26 trains, each with 6 cars, from CAF to run on the extension of Lila Line 5 on the city's metropolitan system.

This was awarded within the framework of an international tender governed by the standards of the BIRD World Bank, who shall fund the operation. This deal amounts to a total of 615 million reales, (approx. 276 million euros).

The first trains shall be delivered in 2013, with the order completed in 40 months. These trains are in addition to the seventeen 6 car trains which have already been supplied by CAF for the same customer in Brazil, as well as the various contracts to supply suburban units with Compañía Paulista de Trenes Metropolitanos, CPTM, some of which have already been supplied, with others currently in production.

This new contract places CAF as the leading train manufacturer in Brazil, also owning a plant in Hortolandia (State of Sao Paulo), which is the most state of the art rolling stock factory in Latin America.
