With over 120 years of experience in supplying Swedish quality technology to mines, EOL Ventsystem provides mining- and tunneling projects worldwide with precisely calculated, highly customized underground ventilation solutions, creating a safe and productive work site - often lowering clients' ventilation energy costs with over 50 % in the process.
EOL Ventsystem was founded in Sweden in 1890 under the name Carl Ström Gruvteknik, and has been distributing mining- and tunneling technology for mines ever since. The focus on ventilation solutions emerged during the decades, and today we stand as one of northern Europe's most trusted and sought-after underground ventilation providers.
We develop, build and implement highly customized underground ventilation systems for mining- and tunneling clients of all sizes all over the globe. We currently have clients in 15 different countries all over the world, working with clients in all types of mineral mining, infrastructure tunneling among others, and entrusted with the complete ventilation of the world's largest underground iron mine.
The harsh and demanding mining conditions of Scandinavia – such as sub-arctic climates, high heating costs for air, high labor costs and high energy prices – has prompted EOL Ventsystem to focus fully on the controllable factors:
Creating the most energy-efficient, highly automated and durable ventilation technology possible for our clients, in order to keep their energy costs low, their site efficiently ventilated, and their margins high, regardless of conditions. Our fans are made to be strong, efficient and durable to endure intensive use year after year, with minimal requirements for maintenance.
We don't just manufacture and sell great fans and ventilation - we help you along the whole way, making sure you get the full benefit of our experience and know-how from square one. Calculating your mines or tunnels exact air volume needs, and weighing in all conditions such as altitude, climate, and specific tunnel shapes, you can rest assured that your site is in safe hands.
Setting up our highly automated, easy-to-use, real-time feedback based Ventilation On Demand solution, your site will be provided with just the right amount of air at just the right places, 24/7. We have seen how this one solution can cut the energy costs of ventilation in half. That's the kind of numbers that make up the difference between mediocre- and great profit margins in a mine.
Our fans are tested, developed and manufactured in Sweden. With fan hubs made out of aluminum, our fans are significantly less energy-demanding than most of our competitors', increasing their durability and saving you energy costs. We can always customize all the dimensions of your fans right from the factory, making sure you get the perfect fit and the exact performance you need.

We appreciate the cooperation we are having with EOL Ventsystem. They have been providing us with excellent help with various ventilation solutions, where everything from flow paths and air calculations to complete fan installations are handled. Our experience so far is an appreciated and personal ongoing dialogue, as well as products we now have several years of good experience from.
The fan factory itself is 100 % powered by a combination of two renewable energy sources: Wind energy and biofuel. For us, this is simply another step in our century-long tradition of constantly leading our industry forward, making sure to meet the demands of both today and the future.
We are convinced that long-term economic gain and environmental sustainability for us and our customers goes hand-in-hand. When your company chooses to install fans from EOL Ventsystem, the economic and environmental gain you make is double:
Your site makes massive energy savings from using our highly-efficient ventilation system, which saves both your money and the environment, plus the fans themselves were made using green energy, further inceasing the overall sustainability of your companys operations.
... and many others. You can read more about our project history and what our clients have to say about EOL Ventsystem here.
We never expect our client to be the ventilation expert - that's our job. Knowing what we know, we will always take the initiative and strategically help the client cut energy costs in every stage of their ventilation, calculating and suggesting improvements for them where many other ventilation companies would just install their fans and leave it at that. That's probably why EOL Ventsystem - even though being a small firm - still remain the go-to choice for many large mining companies worldwide.
