As part of its strategic supplier partnership with Bombardier Transportation, BFG produced FRP interior panels for these trains at XXXX. 36 types of panels were produced, including side wall panels, door side panels, end cover panels, and door gear panels. All parts, which were produced using a hand lamination process, comply with DIN 5510 fire safety requirements.
