New logistics system in production at the Kiruna mine

10 April 2017

At the end of last year, BDX chose Triona as their supplier regarding the new assignments for LKAB. This includes machinery- and transport services above ground in Kiruna. BDX began using the solution on New Year's Day of 2017.

In the final months of 2016, Triona and BDX worked closely to prepare the launch of the new system. Release was scheduled for midnight, New Year's Eve and everything went well, staff and equipment were able to continue working without interruption.

The system was delivered and production start was carried out without problems. By integration with both systems for weighing and the ERP system, BDX now manages multiple tasks such as; loading of coal and additive handling, loading of ore products on railway wagons, storage handling of pellets and transportation of waste rock and raw goods, transport of materials, ore traffic and road maintenance.

With the new solution, prerequisites are in place to further expand the functionality in 2017 with features like GPS tracking, geofencing and mobile communications. This all together will improve the quality of daily work and automate reporting and monitoring.
