Refurbishment and upgrade of underground wagons for LKAB

Refurbishment and upgrade of underground wagons for iron ore for LKAB.

LKAB’s fleet of 162 underground wagons, which operates on the mine’s main haulage level, 1,365 metres below ground, is currently being refurbished and upgraded by Kiruna Wagon.

During the work, a new type of easy-to-use manual for inspection, service and service intervals will be developed by Kiruna Wagon in collaboration with LKAB.

– The new manual is an important step to ensure correct assembly, inspection and maintenance of the couplers, said Bengt Bolsöy, who is in charge of technical customer support at Kiruna Wagon.
