The agreement, which exceeds 50 million dollars (about 42.6 million euros), also includes the supply of spare parts, special tools and testing equipment, as well as the possibility of purchasing up to ten additional vehicles and their relevant spare parts.

The new trams will be equipped with an on-board energy storage system, which is supplied by CAF Power & Automation, allowing them to run on the catenary-free sections of the network.
