LKAB chose ALMA as its partner

Field Instrumentation & Electrical Engineering
Technical Documentation & Management
Alma Consulting Oy provides as a service for LKAB the conversion of instruments and e-documentation at the two pelletization plants.

LKAB and Alma Consulting Oy have signed a contract for the conversion of instruments and e-documentation at the KK4 and KA3 pelletization plants. The existing Smartplant documentation will be converted to a format compatible with LKAB’s document management system. This is intended to achieve a more cost-effective, user-friendly, and reliable documentation method for the project.

According to Project Director Ola Paganus, “LKAB has invested a lot in recent years and will continue to do so in the future, too. We need new suppliers and partner organisations and ALMA Consulting Oy has already demonstrated its expertise by carrying out a pilot project at the beginning of the year.”

“This project is important from the point of view of our market penetration in Sweden and in the mining sector in general. The cooperation with LKAB has been really smooth and we’re delighted to be able to deliver the project”, reports Director Niko Pahkala.

Both companies are looking forward to continuing their collaboration on future projects. ALMA Consulting Oy’s own patented ALMA system is central to the project.

According to Project lead engineer Janne Mäkinen, “this efficient and innovative system is a key factor in effective project work and it allows us to work in a mistake-free way as well as produce high quality.”
