SJ is making one of the largest commitments in the company’s 150-year history by investing in a comprehensive renewal and restoration programme for its fleet of SJ 2000 trains. SJ has entered into an agreement with ABB concerning the initial technical restoration of the entire fleet of SJ 2000 trains (previously X 2000). This phase of the renovation will cost approximately SEK 1.4 billion. The first newly-renovated SJ 2000 train will be put into operation in 2016, although the renewal and restoration programme will continue until 2019. The renovation is anticipated to reduce energy consumption by approximately 10 per cent.
