CAF has been awarded two train maintenance contracts in Spain. Renfe awarded a contract for maintenance services of Madrid commuter trains s/446 y Civia (electric trains) and medium distance regional trains s/596 and s/598 (diesel train). These contracts will be performed through their joint venture, Actren, in partnership with Renfe for a term of 4 years, with the option of an additional year considered.
Actren started operations with Renfe in 2007 and has since performed the maintenance of a significant number of Renfe fleets. Highlights include the maintenance of high-speed units with ongoing current operations.
The Bilbao Metro has designated CAF for the contract to overhaul 218 bogies on 24 units of Series 500. The awarded contract term will be 5 years and provides continuity to previous contracts for the overhaul of Series 550 and 600 bogies.
