Sandvik reported a LH625iE electric loader, with a 9.5-m3 bucket and a 25,000-kg payload capacity, will be deployed at LKAB’s Kiruna underground iron ore mine in Sweeden.

Leadership at Kiruna said the miner and the supplier have a relationship dating back two decades, which is the context for the adoption and deployment of the loader. “We are satisfied with the loaders delivered from Sandvik,” Michael Palo, senior vice president, northern division, LKAB, said. “We have had a long and good collaboration and look forward to a good continuation.”

The unit belongs to Sandvik’s i-series and features the Sandvik Intelligent Control System and My Sandvik Digital Services Knowledge Box as standard, and can be fitted with the company’s AutoMine and OptiMine solutions. It has an IE4 classified energy-efficient motor.
