MagnaDense generates interest in the USA

Offshore platforms
MagnaDense is used as a ballast in many offshore structures such as gravity-based foundations.

LKAB Minerals' high density aggregate, MagnaDense created a stir at this year's Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, Texas.

Over four days (5 – 8th May) LKAB Minerals joined over 108,300 delegates from around the world, to showcase our unique offering to the Offshore industry. Our stand was situated in the hub of activity with industry professionals congregating to learn how our high density aggregate can be used as a cost effective alternative to traditional ballasting material and techniques.

The LKAB Minerals stand, located within the Swedish Pavilion attracted a host of visitors to discuss current and future projects involving foundations that need to be of a considerable weight in order to withstand the motions of the sea. MagnaDense’s characteristics provides the solution as it can be used as loose ballast or as concrete aggregate to ballast offshore applications.

Denise Roberts our Business Development Manager Offshore who was one of three stand personnel on LKAB Minerals’ stand commented on the exciting opportunities that the event ignited;

“Attending this iconic industry event has proved both beneficial and rewarding for us as a team. Over the four days there has been talk of some interesting collaborations involving future projects that require heavy weight ballasting."

With the ever-increasing developments within the offshore industry, LKAB Minerals is not one to stand around. Therefore in order to continue to spread the word about MagnaDense and its consistent use in offshore projects, we will be exhibiting at next week’s All Energy Exhibition in Aberdeen on stand N39.
