LKAB Wassara has been a driving force behind new technological development in drilling since the end of the 1980s, when it invented the water-driven downhole drilling hammer. It has since constantly challenged traditional methods with new innovative solutions. Productivity demands have forced development in new technologies, and the possibility to drill long and straight holes has been a huge step in this direction. The next major technology leap for LKAB Wassara is to bring its mechanical products into the digital age. As part of this process, the launch of a data logging, parameter optimization and autonomous drilling system, baptized O.W.D. - Optimization While Drilling, is now taking place.
