LKAB Wassara

We develop, manufacture and sell energy-efficient, high-performance drilling systems for both surface and underground drilling. The heart of our drilling system is the water-powered DTH hammer, but we also provide instrumentation and services for messuring boreholes with our newest product Wassara explorer™.


The water-powered hammer

Wassara's water-powered DTH hammer is the most environmentally friendly percussion drilling method available today. The water-powered technology offers several advantages such as the ability to drill long straight holes, high energy efficiency and a low impact on the environment.
