In this paper the application of a Proportional Hazard Model (PHM) in order to quantify the effects of climate conditions on the hazard rate of the Stacker belt in The Svea coal mine – in Svalbard, Norway –are discussed. The result of the study shows that the hazard rate of the Stacker belt in winter can be four times more than the rest of the year, which needs to be considered in the maintenance plan of the mine.
