S&T Projects :

Detailed status of implementation of ongoing S&T Research Projects funded under S&T grant of MoC is enclosed as Annexure –II.

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 63 no of mines of ECL till 2015-16. As on 31.3.2016, 231 no of SDLs and 27 no of LHDs were on roll in different underground mines of ECL. During 2015-16, production achieved from 231 no of SDLs was 4.411 Mt., from 27 no of LHDs was 0.983 Mt and from 1 no of Dosco is 0.045 Mt.

“Mass production technology” by deploying Continuous Miner combined with Shuttle car had been deployed at Jhanjra and Sarpi projects. The production achieved during 2015-16 from 3 Nos. of CM was 1.474 MT.

Jhanjra Longwall panel is expected to be commissioned in June, 2016 with a target of 1.20 MT for 2016-17.

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.
  3. Highwall Mining: The highwall mining is being introduced in Nimcha and Sripur Colliery.
  4. Man riding system and Free Steered Vehicle has been functional in Parasea and Jhanjra collieries respectively.

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, Sidhuli apart from gradual phasing out of manual operations with the intermediate technology such as SDL, LHD etc. 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.
