CAF wins Euskotren´s Contract to manufacture 28 new trains

Euskotren has awarded CAF with the manufacture of 28 new units for €150m expected to run on Line 3 of Bilbao Metro. This line is currently being built and will contribute to Euskotren’s current modernization process with the replacement of the oldest Units of Series 200 and 300.


The New Units will feature cutting-edge technological innovations in the railway industry as regards technology, reliability, sustainability and ergonomics, coupled with a design similar to Series 900 which embodies state-of-the-art design.


The New Units are scheduled for delivery to Euskotren from 2015 to 2020, with the first units being ready for operation in late 2016, when Metro Line 3 is expected to start revenue service between the town of Etxebarri and the Matiko District in Bilbao.
