CAF P&A PLAYS A KEY ROLE IN THE AWARDING OF THE CONTRACT FOR THE REFURBISHMENT OF 14 UNITS ON ATHENS METRO LINE 1

The operator STASY S.A., in charge of managing transport in the city of Athens, has selected CAF to refurbish 14 metro units that currently run on line 1 of the Greek capital's metro system. This project, with a tender budget totalling €70 million, marks the first major contract for the company in Greece.

Athens metro Line 1 is the city's oldest metro line, known as the Green Line, which connects Piraeus with the neighbouring town of Kifisiá, to the north of the capital city. The contract establishes a 34-month completion period for the unit refurbishment´s project. These units were commissioned for operation between 1983 and 1985, and the intention is to update them so that they can continue to run efficiently for further 25 years. (quité la “a”)

CAF Power & Automation will replace the traction equipment, fitting new state-of-the-art motors, providing improved consumption efficiency, as well as updating various systems such as those related to braking equipment, vehicle access door control and passenger information systems, to name a few. The total approximate value of the project will be €9.5 million.
