Recently, the LKAB mine in Malmberget, in northern Sweden, began using an electric Scania heavy tipper. Scania has the opportunity to test and use completely electric vehicles in a challenging underground mining environment thanks to this customer-close development.
The electric heavy tipper, which has a load weight of 49 tonnes, delivers leftover goods. In the mining business, it is the first of its sort.
Both Scania and LKAB operate in sectors that are presently undergoing substantial changes to increase their degree of sustainability. The two reputable industrial firms have teamed together to run electric vehicles in LKAB’s mines, paving the way for future-proof transportation in this sector.
One of the world’s most environmentally responsible mining businesses is what LKAB aspires to be. Starting with the iron ore in the mines, the path to a safe, efficient, and carbon emission-free iron and steel sector is now being expanded to encompass transportation as well.
