CAF will supply 31 units to Budapesti Közlekedési Központ (BKK) for use in the Hungarian capital.

With this order, BKK is exercising an option to further extend the number of units ordered in an initial 2014 contract.

CAF’s first contract with BKK consisted of 37 units, with the option of possible future extensions. Since then, BKK has already received an additional 36 units and has a further 20 units on order.

Under this latest extension, CAF will supply 26 five-module trams and five nine-module units. The manufacturer will also provide additional equipment and services to support their operation.

These low-floor vehicles are designed to operate at 50 kilometres per hour. The 5-module trams will have capacity for up to 326 passengers, while the 9-module units will each be able to transport 526 passengers. At 56-metres long, these will be some of the longest trams in the world.

Alcalá de Guadaíra

Meanwhile, the Regional Government of Andalusia has contracted CAF to manufacture 6 Urbos trams for the Alcalá de Guadaíra tram line in Seville.

This contract also includes two years of maintenance work on the units, as well as the supply of spare parts.
