Digitalisation is a cornerstone of LKAB’s operations, now and in the future. We use digital technology to be and work smarter, safer and more sustainable.
LKAB's digital systems is an important part of the foundation for efficient mining and future development. Our business requires systems that are robust, secure and have high availability.
Globally, we were first to have underground wifi and developed our own wireless communication systems long before that. Today, our mines have the largest underground wifi system in the world.
In the mines, we use everything from our own apps for mobile phones and tablets to driverless trucks and remote-controlled drills. New applications for digitalised processes are constantly being developed.
To drive development, we are constantly at the forefront, testing new technology - whether it be artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), driverless vehicles or positioning.
A solid IT network and access to high-level digital competence are both key when building LKAB's digital future.
