ABB has won a 32 million US$ order to revamp four mine hoists for LKAB’s new main haulage level in its Kiruna iron ore mine in north Sweden. The order includes mechanical equipment and the upgrade of electrical control and drives for four mine hoists, and related engineering services. The order was booked in the first quarter of 2012. The revamped hoists will operate in the mine’s new main haulage level, at 1365 m deep, to increase annual crude iron ore production by more than 17 %, from 30 million metric tons to 35 million metric tons. The new haulage level will also help to extend the mine’s operations at the site through 2030. The revamped hoists are scheduled to be in operation starting in 2014, with the fourth hoist scheduled for 2017.
