First CAF Oaris for Flytoget arrives at Velim Quintus Vosman

THE first CAF Oaris high-speed train for Oslo airport express operator Flytoget has arrived at the VUZ Velim test centre in the Czech Republic for dynamic testing.

The four-car 15 kV 16.7 HZ ac class 78 EMU has a maximum speed of 250km/h and seats 236 passengers.

The train will undergo an extensive programme of tests at Velim as part of the process for obtaining an Authorisation to Place in Service (APS), which is required for commercial operation.

The trains will be compliant with the Technical Specification for Interoperability for Passengers with Reduced Mobility (TSI- PRM).

Flytoget became the debut customer for the Oaris in March 2015 when it placed an NKr 1.3bn ($US 160m) order for eight trains for services from Gardemoen Airport to Oslo Central and Drammen.
