Significant vehicle order for NMV Group

NMV Group has signed a contract for delivery of three explosives charging vehicles to LKAB in Kiruna. The first vehicle will be delivered in November.

In order to meet the demands of tomorrow’s mining industry, NMV Group’s mining vehicle division has worked together with LKAB to implement a number of modifications and updates to the previous version of NMV’s explosives charging vehicle. The modifications mean, among other things, that the new vehicle will be equipped with a larger explosives tank and digitalised communication with the mine planning system. The charging hose’s feeding system will also be developed to make the work even safer and more accurate in the future.

“We are always ready to adapt our products in accordance with the customer’s needs. Mining is an industry under constant development, which means that we must be responsive to our customers and plan for the future”, says Jimmy Björnström, Construction Manager at NMV Mining Vehicles.

Roger Lärkmo, who works with technical development and strategic purchasing at LKAB, comments on the collaboration as follows:

“NMV has a long history of manufacturing mining vehicles, in this case an explosives charging vehicle. We are pleased to have a supplier in the Malmfälten area, it greatly facilitates the close contact that is necessary to achieve a good product. It is very important that the customer and the supplier have a good mutual understanding.”

NMV Group is proud to be entrusted with the continued delivery of world-class vehicles to LKAB and the Swedish mining industry.
