Alstom has been awarded a contract valued at circa 30 million euro with Metroselskabet for the mid-life fleet modernisation of the M1 and M2 metro trains in Copenhagen in Denmark. The programme includes renovations of 34 metros, which have been in operation for almost 20 years in the city. The mid-life modernisation will begin immediately for a period of approximately three years. Alstom will perform the services in its workshops in the Rotterdam area in the Netherlands. The trainsets modernisation includes parts replacement along with interior and exterior renovation. It will improve the performance of the 34 metro trains and extend its lifetime by 10 years. This will result in a better experience for passengers commuting on the Danish metro network. Once the modernisation project is complete, the trainsets will be reassigned to Metroselskabet’s M1 and M2 lines.
