The company is tendering for manufacturers to produce units which can operate at up to 225mph (360km/h) and provide the reliability, comfort and capacity required for services on the new network. The winner of the bid will be awarded a contract for the design, build and maintenance of at least 54 trains, to be delivered and ready for service by 2026.

Richard Garner, CAF UK Director, said:

“We are extremely pleased to be included in the HS2’s procurement programme. Our Oaris high speed trains use the latest technology offering high speed travel which is comfortable, safe and provides digital connectivity to facilitate the busy world that we live in. The new high speed trains will meet the highest international standards for passenger experience, noise reduction, and environmental sustainability.”

CAF has also stated that if it wins the contract it will manufacture the trains at the facility which it is currently constructing in Wales.
