Spain’s CAF Wins Train Contract in Mexico

MEXICO CITY – Spain’s Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarril (CAF) said it won a contract to build 26 trains for the Metrorrey rail system in Monterrey, the capital of the northern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon.

The contract covers specialized infrastructure and equipment for Metrorrey’s Line 3, CAF said in a statement.

CAF, which will supply 26 articulated trains to the Metrorrey system, will provide replacement parts for two years and training in a variety of areas, including vehicle operation, traffic control, supervision and maintenance.

“The concession will have a life of 20 years, starting from the date of signing, during which the company is required to provide technical advising and assistance,” CAF Mexico director Maximiliano Zurita said.

The contract for 22 trains and 20 years of service is worth 3.3 billion pesos ($251 million), Zurita said, adding that the cost of four more trains must be factored in because Metrorrey plans to exercise an option to acquire the additional units.

Delivery of the first train is expected within 12 months, with all 22 trains in the initial package being delivered in 17 months, the CAF executive said.

The contract allows CAF “to consolidate its position in the Mexican market as one of the main train suppliers in the country, and it makes it one of the most important in the Americas,” Zurita said.
