Kirunas city center has moved

In 2004, it became known that Kiruna's center would be affected by mining activities and would need to be relocated.

The relocation was aimed at enabling ongoing mining and thereby securing jobs and transitioning our processes and products to fossil-free alternatives. 18 years later, the historic inauguration of Kiruna’s new center took place. On September 1, 2022, the retail center in the new commercial quarters opened, situated about 3 kilometers east of the city’s old center.
