 In the Kaunisvaara iron ore project, the Canadian mining company Northland Resources will exploit the Tapuli and Sahavaara iron ore deposits. A concentration mill and stockpile buildings will be built. 

 Ruukki's delivery consists of the process plant building and auxiliary buildings, two iron ore stockpile buildings and the frame structures for the truck workshop. The new iron ore processing plant will be over 200 metres long, 72 metres wide and 40 metres high.

 The buildings will be installed by experienced Ruukki personnel. Installation of heavy structures is technically demanding and the weather conditions have been challenging (darkness, wind).
