Project Manager and Mining Industry Advisor at Business Sweden speaks exclusively to BizClik Media.

Looking to collaborate and foster innovation in the mining sector, six Swedish mining technology firms have joined forces with Business Sweden to create the Swedish Mining Automation Group (SMAG).

Formed just one year ago, SMAG is a collaborative ecosystem that plans to revolutionise mining, creating a more sustainable industry by innovating holistic solutions together with mining companies.

Ericsson, Eprioc, SKF, Mobilaris, Sentian Technologies and Scania Mining: the founding members of SMAG make for impressive reading, and in conjunction with Business Sweden, they plan to bring the latest industry know-how and technologies to mining regions across the globe.

One such country where SMAG is leaving a lasting impression in is Canada

“Sweden has a long history of providing solutions to the mining industry and it’s quite famous for having some of the leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in mines,” said Christian Orrego Silvander.

“This way of working together with a group, as opposed to one vendor is a very new concept, especially in the mining industry.”
