STOCKHOLM--Swedish engineering group Sandvik AB said Wednesday its mining-and-rock products unit has been awarded a two billion Swedish kronor ($213.3 million) contract from BHP Group Ltd. for underground-mining equipment and automation products at the Jansen Potash project in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Delivery of the equipment is expected to start in the third quarter of 2023 and will extend to 2026, the company said.

An order value of around SEK500 million will be reported in each of the first, second and fourth quarters of 2022, as well as in the second quarter of 2023, the company said.

The Jansen project is a potash-producing mine and is expected to operate for up to 100 years. Production is expected to start in 2027.
