NS Groep enters into EUR 300 million loan agreement with EIB to finance Sprinter trains

De Brauw has assisted NS Groep in reaching a EUR 300 million loan agreement with the European Investment Bank to finance the acquisition of Next Generation Sprinter trains.

The project consists of the acquisition of 118 trains to replace the existing obsolete rolling stock for commuter and regional services. The agreement for the supply of new rolling stock was reached in 2014 with Spanish high-tech train manufacturer CAF.
