Modernization of Coal Industry:

In order to increase the level of modernization and mechanization in underground mines, intermediate technology deploying LHD/SDL was introduced in 62 no of mines of ECL till 2016-17. As on 31.3.2017, 274 no of SDLs and 30 no of LHDs were on roll in different underground mines of ECL. During 2016-17, production achieved from 274 no of SDLs was 4.44 Mt., from 30 no of LHDs was 0.88 Mt and from 1 no of Dosco is 0.10 Mt.

“Mass production technology” by deploying Continuous Miner combined with Shuttle car had been deployed at Jhanjra and Sarpi projects. Jhanjra Longwall panel commissioned in August, 2016. In addition to above the following steps are being taken for modernization of Coal Industry:

  1. Coal Bed Methane (CBM): PR is under preparation for exploration and exploitation of CBM in ECL mining lease hold areas.
  2. Excavation: To increase operational efficiency through ergonomics, it has been made mandatory for all the HEMMs to come fitted with AC cabins for the operators. The process is on for replacement of rope shovels with the hydraulic shovels. Latest technology is being increasingly used to enhance safety aspects in HEMMs. Surface miners are also being deployed in OC mines wherever technically possible.
  3. Highwall Mining: The highwall mining is being introduced in Nimcha and Sripur Colliery.
  4. Man riding system has been functional in Parasea and Jhanjra colliery.

Steps taken to improve underground production:

Considering the various operational constraints, liquidation of upper seam, delay in availability of land for caving etc. action has been taken to improve underground production mainly by introduction of mass production technology deploying Continuous Miner with Shuttle Car in more number of underground mines in XII Plan like Jhanjra Low height CM, Kumardihi B, Khottadih, Tilaboni, Shankarpur, Siduli apart from gradual phasing out of manual operations with the intermediate technology. Action has also been taken to introduce more UDMs keeping in view of shortage of Drilling gang due to superannuation and the dual purpose of availability of more coal at face and supporting as well.
