OARIS – CAF HIGH SPEED

The awarding of this project for Norway consists of the supply of units from CAF’s OARIS High speed train platform.

In recent years, CAF has placed a great deal of emphasis on developing their own high speed technology, investing significantly on research. An outcome of this has been the development of the OARIS model which can reach speeds of up to 350 km/h and is equipped with state of the art dynamic, aerodynamic and noise technology, providing paramount performance in terms of comfort and functionality.

Stress should also be placed on CAF’s recent experience supplying RENFE with a wide range of units reaching up to 250 km/h, which feature variable gauge technology, and also the 2005 contract for the supply of 12 units for Turkish Railways, turning CAF into the first Spanish exporter of high speed technology.
