Leading Swedish iron ore miner LKAB announced that anew ship loader is being built in the harbour in Narvik, which are important hubs in the logistics chain & through them, millions of tonnes of iron ore products are transported every year to customers around the world. The ship loader is brought to the harbour via barge (cargo ship) and is expected to be in use by the summer of 2024.The ship loader that stands on quay 5 was built in 1977 and now the time has come to replace it. SEK 500 million is being invested in a completely new loading facility.The loader on quay 5 was for a long time the only loading route in the harbour. When a breakdown in 2011 resulted in an 18-day stoppage, it was decided that another loading route between the warehouse and the boats would be procured. Five years later, the new loading facility was inaugurated on quay 7. The decision for a redundant loader is one of many investments that LKAB has made in the harbour of Narvik.
