Spain’s rolling stock maker Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles (CAF) has obtained an order to supply eight four-car high-speed trains to Norway’s rail operator Flytoget. The latest deal is estimated to be worth some €120 million.
“The contract includes the delivery of eight Oaris high-speed trains, plus associated spares and technical support,” the Spanish firm said in a statement. This means that the trains will have a unit price of €15 million.
The first trains are expected to enter into service in 2018, according to CAF. The Oaris model is enabled with a maximum speed of up to 350 km/h, and it offers a seating capacity for more than 500 passengers.
Flytoget AS operates the Airport Express line between the central train station in Norway’s capital Oslo and the city’s Gardermoen airport. Set up in 1992 and based in Oslo, the company is owned by the Norwegian state. The operator says it provides rail transportation services to some 6.5 million passengers per year.
Based in Beasain, Spain, CAF operates production facilities located in Spain, Mexico, Brazil, the US and France, according to data released by the manufacturer.
