LKAB modernization of Enrichment plants

In year 2015 LKAB carried out two modernization projects to Enrichment plants both in Gällivare and Kiruna mills. Old process equipment was removed and replaced while plants were in full production. The total value of the investments was ca. 50 M€.
Both projects utilized selective laser scanning.  As much as 80 percent of the welding was done in the workshop. The installation concept enabled that the shut-down works could be carried out in a short time frame without notable manpower peaks and made the HSE-planning much easier.
Fineweld Ltd's delivery included manufacturing and installation of process equipment, piping installation, valve delivery and installation, pump installation and coupling alignment. Joint value of the projects was ca. 10 M€
