Synch act as legal advisor in catapulting the next era of mining operations

Synch is proud to have served as the legal advisor in Grangex's acquisition of Sydvaranger Mining AS, marking a significant milestone in advancing the "green steel revolution". This pivotal step underscores Grangex's commitment to emerging as a premier supplier in the global market.

I thank the entire Grangex management team as well as our advisors for their hard work and commitment in completing this transaction, says Christer Lindqvist, Chief Executive Officer of Grangex.

The European and global steel industries are undergoing a fundamental shift away from blast furnace steelmaking driven by a requirement to reduce CO2 emissions and reach broader sustainability targets. Grangex is today the sole owner of both the Sydvaranger Mine and Dannemora Mine. Grangex's strategy is to restart ultra-high-grade direct reduction magnetite concentrate production at both mines to meet global demands.

'This aligns with our commitment to a better world regardless if it's in core mining operations or a technological startup. Being part of this dedicated team was inspiring and uplifting, comments Jim Runsten, CEO at Synch. 

Synch's team consisted of Olof Hultén, Stefan Rakovic, Cecilia McMeel, Emma Lindberg, Andreas Börjesson, and Jim Runsten.
