It has now been decided that the X2 units are to be upgraded by ABB. They are over halfway through their 40-year design life and the upgrade order, worth about 2 billion Swedish crowns, was signed in Stockholm on 16 January 2014.
Only the bodyshells and underfloor components will remain, everything else will be renewed or updated. Among new features will be air conditioning and a modern information system.
