CAF to supply 77 diesel units for the United Kingdom

(04/07/2018) 

The contract includes the supply and maintenance of 44 two-car and 26 three-car units that will enter service in September 2022 and a further 7 two-car units to be delivered in September 2024. The units are based on the UK Civity platform, designed for commuter and regional services.

The final assembly of the units will take place at CAF’s new facilities at the Celtic Business Park site in Newport, South Wales, which is expected to be operational in autumn 2018. CAF has invested over 30 million pounds (about 35 million euros) in its new British factory, receiving grant support from the Welsh Government’s investment programmes.
