BRAZIL: São Paulo suburban operator CPTM has awarded CAF a four-year contract for the maintenance of eight suburban electric multiple-units which it supplied in 2011-12 for use on Line 10.

The work will be carried out by the Spanish company’s CAF Brazil subsidiary at the operator’s Lapa depot.

CAF said the latest contract announced on July 27 ‘reinforces its ongoing work in São Paulo’, where it now holds several maintenance contracts awarded by CPTM.
