• Alstom has upgraded a total of 270 model C20 cars for the Stockholm metro;
• Since 2017, the project has been involving 110 workshop fitters, 25 engineers and several local subcontractors in Västerås;
• The upgrade brings about significant improvement in customer experience by modernising all passenger cars.

The last car is now leaving the workshop in Västerås to return to Stockholm, fully prepared for passenger service.

The modernisation programme emphasises the extensive reuse of materials to achieve environmental and cost-saving benefits. Additionally, the interior layout has been updated with an open design and new seating arrangements, facilitating quicker boarding and disembarking, and new passenger information systems, enhancing the passenger experience.

"For our operations in Västerås and for our local subcontractors, this project has been of significant importance, placing the Västerås workshop on the map internationally showing our expertise in the domain," says Maria Signal Martebo, Managing Director of Alstom in Sweden.

The project was carried out in close collaboration with Alstom's customer MTR and the end customer SL.
