CAF MiiRA will contribute its experience with manufacturing wheels, axles, and complete axle systems to help reduce the adverse impact of Euskotren’s services on those living near the tracks.

“At CAF MiiRA, we take pride in our commitment to excellence and continuous innovation in the railway industry. This strategic collaboration with Euskotren provides us with an opportunity to combine our capabilities and knowledge to develop advanced solutions that improve the passenger travel experience and reduce environmental impact.”
