LEMMINKÄINEN TO BUILD A CRUSHING PLANT IN GÄLLIVARE, NORTHERN SWEDEN
Lemminkäinen has signed a contract with Boliden to build an ore crushing plant at the Aitik mine, located near the town of Gällivare in northern Sweden. The project will start in June 2016 and will be completed in June 2017.
Lemminkäinen is responsible for the execution of the project, including concrete works, earth works and construction steel works. Boliden Aitik is one of the largest copper mines in Europe. The new, powerful crushing plant will be built next to the current crushing plant enabling increased production.
“Industrial construction is one of our areas of expertise in the field of complex infrastructure construction and we are pleased to continue our long-term cooperation with Boliden. In 2015, we built a water pumping system for Boliden Aitik, for example,” says Harri Kailasalo, Executive Vice President, Infra projects at Lemminkäinen.
