Stockholm Metro is a rapid transit system serving the Swedish capital, Stockholm. The Stockholm Public Transport Authority (Storstockholms Lokaltrafik - SL) has ordered MOVIA C30 articulated trains produced by Bombardier Transportation for its upgrade of the system’s red line.

As part of its strategic supplier partnership with Bombardier Transportation, BFG produced sophisticated FRP front ends for these trains at NOMA Composites, its fully owned subsidiary in France. The parts, which have anti-ballistic properties, were produced using an infusion process, and comply with EN 45-545 fire safety regulations.
