Finland-based steelmaker Ruukki has announced that it has signed a contract with the Swedish company Kiruna Wagon to deliver high-strength shell plates for iron ore wagons to be used at an iron ore mine in Pajala, northern Sweden. The contract marks an important new entry into the Swedish mining sector.
Under the contract, Ruukki will deliver high-strength shell plates made of Ruukki Optim steel for 75 wagon units, with each unit consisting of two wagons. The iron ore mine at Pajala will begin operations in late 2012 and the new wagons will transport iron ore concentrate to the harbor located in Narvik, Norway.
Ruukki stated that the shell plates will be prefabricated at its steel service centers in Seinäjoki and Uusikaupunki, Finland.
