In Italy, the operator AMAT S.p.A, the public agency of the city of Palermo managing transport in the capital of Sicily, has awarded CAF Italia the contract for 4 years' maintenance of the 17 trams which provide service on the 4 lines of the city's tramway network. This tramway fleet has been in operation since 2015, and is one of Italy's most modern tramway systems. Maintenance work will be carried out in the customer's own workshops in Roccella and Leonardo.


The tender was awarded to the joint venture made by CAF Italia and EDS Infrastrutture S.p.A, with CAF Italia leading the joint venture and being responsible for rolling stock maintenance, while EDS Infrastrutture will take on the line infrastructure maintainer role.


On the other hand, Companhia Paulista de Trens Metropolitanos (CPTM) of the State of São Paulo, Brazil, has awarded CAF a contract for maintenance of 8 suburban trains for a 4-year term. These units were manufactured and supplied by CAF between 2011 and 2012, and operate on line 10 on the São Paulo metropolitan network, operated by CPTM.


CPTM is a company associated with the Secretary of Metropolitan Transport of the State of São Paulo, which manages seven lines with over 270 kilometres of railway network, transporting approximately 2.9 million passengers on a daily basis.


The maintenance work will be carried out by the CAF Brazil subsidiary at the Brazilian operator's facilities in the district of Lapa, located to the west of the municipality of São Paulo. This contract reinforces CAF Brazil's activities with CPTM, where it now operates several maintenance contracts. Also in the American continent, the Medellín Metro has awarded CAF the long cycle maintenance reviews of 35 units supplied by CAF over the last few years. This contract will span over more than 2 years in continuation to the activity that was already being carried out since the commissioning of these units until this date.


Lastly, CAF has concluded an agreement with Metro de Málaga in Spain to extend the current maintenance contract for 5 years, including long cycle inspections, of its URBOS 3 fleet of 14 trams. It should be mentioned that CAF's relationship with Metro Málaga dates back to 2010 with the delivery of the first units manufactured by the company to this operator, having since then performed maintenance operations on this fleet of trams.
