Rejlers expands cooperation with LKAB
Rejlers has been commissioned to develop the logistics system for the new and deeper main level planned at LKAB’s Malmberget mine. The goal is to create new technical solutions that will set a new world standard for sustainable mining at great depths.
One of the world’s largest underground mines is located in Malmberget in Gällivare Municipality. The current mining operations are conducted 1250 m below ground. Planning is underway for mining operations beyond year 2060 with major investments in infrastructure, innovative mining methods and new ways of working.
Rejlers has been given a renewed assignment to continue its work with logistics systems process, which includes the transport of iron ore at the new and deeper main level. The assignment began in 2021 and is expected to be completed in February 2024.
“Deeper mines are extremely complex and involve both greater rock stresses and stricter safety requirements. We’re working to find the absolute best technical solutions for this purpose and developing a fully autonomous and robust logistics system with a focus on low operating costs and a high level of safety. This project is something completely new and will set the standard for future iron ore mining at these levels,” says Mats Daglind, Project Manager for the logistics project at Rejlers’ Industry division.
The development of the new main level is tied to the technological shift required to create fossil-free steel. Malmberget and Gällivare are paving the way forward, and the solution created for Malmberget may also be implemented at LKAB’s other underground mines.
