Linkker bus put to the test in Artic Mine

In co-operation with Vattenfall, LKAB and Kempower, a Linkker 12+ LE bus is being used in a project to evaluate how electric buses adapt to the harsh environment of Arctic Mines. The goal is to specify the needed performance requirements in order to electrify the personnel transportation both above and beneath the ground. Apart from the freezing outside temperatures the underground environment also poses some additional challenges: a height difference of 1.2km and inclinations up to 13 degrees.
