CAF has signed an extension to the tram supply contract with Storstockholms Lokaltrafik AB (SL), the company responsible for the transport network in the city of Stockholm. The contract involves the supply of 8 new units, which add to the 22 units already built by CAF and now running in the Scandinavian capital.
The trams are low floor bidirectional units providing optimum accessibility. They are built on the URBOS platform with 3-car sets, providing an estimated capacity of 221 passengers (70 seated and 2 PRM places). Similarly to previously supplied vehicles, they are particularly adapted for the extreme weather conditions in this Nordic country, and fitted with state-of-the-art comfort and safety equipment.
The first contract for the supply of 15 trams for Stockholm was awarded to CAF in late 2010, and was subsequently extended by a further 7 units.
