COLOMBIA: Spanish rolling stock manufacturer CAF announced on July 2 that it had signed an €89m contract with Empresa de Transporte Masivo Valle de Aburrá to supply 20 three-car trainsets for the Medellín metro.
CAF said that the order has been placed in response to growing passenger numbers, and so the trainsets will be able to run in multiple.
CAF supplied 13 three-car trainsets to Medellín under a contract signed in 2009, and an option for three more trains was exercised in January 2014. The first of these is to be delivered to Colombia shortly.
The two-line Medellín metro covers 35·5 route-km and has 27 stations.
