The Kaohsiung tram is the world's first fully catenary-free tram. This city is home to Taiwan's second largest harbour.

CAF T&E has developed a superior energy capture system with the SIL-3 security level. In this way, 14 stations have been built along the 8.6 km track without catenary with this technology to adapt to the needs of customers.
