NYAB wins two contracts in Kiruna municipality – infrastructure projects for Infranord

With the new agreement, NYAB will carry out the earthworks on the railway projects in Linaälv-Kalixfors and northern Kiruna for Infranord.

Infranord is the largest railway contracting company in Sweden and one of the largest players in Norway. The company is wholly owned by the Swedish state.

The infrastructure project includes two contracts.

The first, "Exchanges and station extensions, Linaälv-Kalixfors section", refers to the construction of eleven track switches on the Malmbanan and three station extensions. It also includes relocating two scooter crossings. The purpose is to allow meeting between ore trains and to place the switches in straight tracks.

The second, "Infrastructure Norr Kiruna, BEST Ny Sjöbangård Kiruna", refers to part of the work for a new Sjöbangård with up to nine tracks in width to be built.
A construction interchange with a construction track will be constructed for the implementation of the works.  

LKAB's mining of iron ore goes down at deeper levels in the Kiruna mine. Sjöbangården is affected in its northern part where it connects to Kiruna Malmbangård (KMB) and Malmbanan. Other existing infrastructure is also affected. This leads to replacements of the infrastructure that today runs between the society and LKAB.

The infrastructure project will start in near future.

In connection with the newly signed contracts, NYAB on behalf of LKAB carries out the two infrastructure contracts "Land for other infrastructure" and "Land for track construction North". The four rail-related contracts together represent significant economic value with possible synergies and coordination wins.

- We are grateful for Infranord's trust. We are well acquainted with prevailing conditions and the importance of careful consideration for mining operations, road and rail traffic. The ambition is to, together with Infranord, perform high-quality work with the goal of handing over two projects that exceed the customer's expectations, says Mikael Ritola, vice president of NYAB.
