For many years, CAF has maintained a close relationship and collaboration with benchmark companies in railway-related sectors, such as civil works companies and companies in the electricity sector, and also with financial institutions and public bodies. This has all led CAF to head and participate in prestigious projects throughout the world, based on concession or turnkey models.
Railway concessions are becoming a formula that is increasingly demanded by customers throughout the world. The growing participation of private initiative in the promotion and financing of new infrastructures makes it necessary for innovative concepts to appear in this area.
CAF has developed solutions in the area of railway concessions, adapted to meet its customers' needs in an increasingly complex market.
These operations follow the classic BOT scheme: Build, Operate, Transfer. In other words, CAF assumes the responsibility and management for the complete project, right from the start of the work construction up to the end of the concession.
CAF has the experience, the know-how and the capacity required to undertake turnkey projects.
CAF delivers the system to the customer with all the infrastructure, electrification and signalling fully integrated, ready for the desired operation. CAF also offers operating support, although in this case the level of risk assumed is lower than for concessions.
