CERTIFER has been selected by CAF as Assessment Body and Notified Body for the new inter-regional EMU and BMUs project in Sweden
Sweden’s rail operator SJ awarded CAF a contract for the supply of 20 EMU units and 10 BMU units which will enter passenger service in the Stockholm-Mälardalen region. With a maximum speed of 200 km/h, the Civity Nordic electric multiple units will be design with winterization for Swedish requirements, smoother boarding, extra space for bicycles, strollers, and baggage, and facilities for passengers to work while onboard.
As the introduction of a new rolling stock is a significant technical change for the railway system, CERTIFER’s mission as Assessment Body and Notified Body will be to ensure that all safety requirements and other important requirements are applied. CERTIFER is proud to take part in this project which confirms its presence on the Scandinavian market.
