CAF Wins Maintenance Contracts Worth €40m

Spanish rolling stock manufacturer has won maintenance contracts worth 40 million euros.


The public entity that manages transport in the city of Palermo, Sicily – AMAT S.p.A. – has selected CAF Italia to maintain the 17 trams that operate on the city’s four tram lines. The contract has a runtime of four years. The fleet in question has been carrying passengers in Sicily’s capital since 2015. CAF will perform the maintenance works at AMAT’s workshops in Roccella and Leonardo.

CAF won the tender as part of a joint venture with EDS Infrastrutture S.p.A. CAF Italia is the lead partner in the joint venture and will be in charge of maintaining the rolling stock, while EDS Infrastrutture will maintain the track infrastructure.


In Brazil CAF has won a contract to maintain eight suburban trains, also for a four-year period. The contract is with Companhia Paulista de Trens Metropolitanos (CPTM) in São Paulo. CAF manufactured the trains between 2011 and 2012. They currently operate on line 10 of the São Paulo metropolitan network.

CAF Brazil will perform the maintenance works at CPTM’s facilities in Lapa, which is situated west of São Paulo. CAF has a number of maintenance contracts with CPTM.

CAF has won the long cycle maintenance reviews of 35 trains that CAF delivered to Medellín Metro in recent years. This contract has a runtime of 2+ years and will be a continuation of activities already in place since these metro trains were commissioned.


CAF has also signed an agreement with the Metro de Málaga. It extends the maintenance contract already in place by a further five years. CAF is to maintain its URBOS 3 fleet, which consists of 14 trams. CAF started working with Metro de Málaga in 2010 when it delivered the first trams to this operator.
