Boliden electrifies heavy ore transport

Together with Scania and Renfors Åkeri, Boliden is now taking the first steps to electrify our heavy transports on public roads in Västerbotten county, in the north of Sweden.

The electric truck to be used for heavy transport will begin operating on the roads in the second quarter of 2022.  

“This is really a preparatory measure. You could say that we are paving the way for the electrification of all trucks that transport our ore and concentrate,” explains Jonas Ranggård, Program Manager Electrification, Boliden Mines.

The project is a part of REEL, Regional Electrified Logistics, an initiative lead by CLOSER and supported by the programme Fordonsstrategisk forskning och Innovation (FFI) to pave the way for the transition to an electrified freight transport in the Swedish market.
