BRAZIL: Salvador metro PPP concessionaire CCR has ordered 49 four-car trainsets from a consortium of Hyundai Rotem and Iesa.

The cars are to be assembled in Iesa’s Araraquara plant, with some components manufactured in South Korea. They will join the six trainsets built by a Mitsui-Rotem consortium that were delivered to Salvador in 2008. These have been refurbished by Hyundai Rotem.
