DB Regio selected for Rhein-Neckar operating contract
The 31 multiple units will reduce the average age of the existing Cercanías commuter service in Asturias, Cantabria, the Basque Country, Galicia, Castilla y León and Murcia from 28 to 15 years.
The two and three-car trains will have a maximum speed of 100km/h, and the EMUs will be equipped with a last mile battery system. The bi-mode trains will be designed to be upgraded for either battery or fuel cell operation in future.
The contract includes an option for six additional EMUs and an additional bi-mode multiple unit. The trains will have spaces for bicycles, and will be accessible for passengers with limited mobility.
CAF will also supply six trains for services along the C-9 metre-gauge line in Madrid, which connects Cercedilla and Cotos.
The contract includes 15 years’ maintenance for 12 of the metre-gauge trains and the six Alpine trains, which will be undertaken by the Actren joint-venture between CAF and Renfe Fabricacion y Mantenimiento.
The order is part of Renfe’s €5bn fleet renewal project, which was announced last year.
