The French engineering concern and operator Metroselskabet have signed a contract worth about €30 million. It involves the modernization of 34 metro trains operating on the M1 and M2 lines in the Danish capital for almost 20 years. It is reported by Railway Supply magazine, citing the manufacturer.


The upgrade will start immediately and last approximately three years at the Alstom workshops near Rotterdam in the Netherlands. It includes the replacement of parts, interior and exterior repairs. The upgrade will improve performance and extend the service life of the trains by 10 years.

This is the first major project of Alstom and Metroselskabet. The French company has been present in Denmark for 20 years, having delivered over 500 regional trains and signaling systems to the country.
