CAF’s scope in this contract exceeds €500M and involves the supply of 29 diesel-electric units, two simulators and the construction and fitting-out of a new maintenance facility in the city of Dubbo, northwest of Sydney.

In addition, CAF is also providing equity financing of the company that will operate the system, whose first units will enter revenue service during 2022. The aim is to replace the old regional train fleet with new trains for regional and intercity rail services to the cities of Canberra, Melbourne and Brisbane.
