Command Areas of Operations:

There are 14 numbers of operating Areas with 78 numbers of working mines, 49 Underground mines, 20 opencast mines and 9 mixed mines.

 

Research and Development Projects:

Detailed status of implementation of ongoing R&D projects funded under R&D grant of CIL is given in Annexure-I.

 

S&T Projects:

Detailed status of implementation of ongoing S&T Research projects funded under S&T grant of MoC is given in Annexure-II.

 

Modernization of Underground Mines:

In order to increase the level of modernization and mechanization in underground mines, intermediate technology deploying LHD/SDL was introduced in 57 nos. of mines of ECL till 2019-20. As on 31.3.2020, 244 nos. of SDLs, 40 nos. of LHDs and 134 nos. of UDMs were on roll (inclusive initial Survey-off equipment) in different underground mines of ECL. During 2019-20, production achieved from SDLs was 4.17 MT, from LHDs was 1.02 MT and from 2 nos Road header (Part of Longwall Package) is 0.11 MT.

“Mass production technology” by deploying Continuous Miner combined with Shuttle Car (6 sets) had been deployed at Jhanjra, Sarpi and Kumardih-B UG projects and is running successfully. The production achieved during 2019-20 from 3 Nos. of Standard Height Continuous Miner and 3 nos. Low height Continuous Miner was 2.43 MT. In Jhanjra, Longwall technology is running successfully since August, 2016 & production during 2019-20 was 1.43 MT (Excluding Road Header). Overall underground coal production increased from 9.06 MT in 2018-19 to 9.21 MT in 2019-20 registering growth of 1.60%.

In addition to above the following steps are being taken for diversification / modernization of Coal Industry:

 

  • a) Coal Bed Methane (CBM): Project Feasibility Report (PFR) has been formulated and approved by ECL Board administratively under MDO concept on 22.09.2018 covering lease hold area of Satgram, Kunustoria & Sripur Area. CMPDIL prepared revised Notice Inviting Offer and Model Revenue Sharing Contact considering Directorate General of Hydrocarbon under MoP&NG’s suggestions and sent the same to CIL for approval with a copy to ECL.
  •  

  • b) Highwall Mining: The Highwall Mining is proposed to be introduced in Nimcha and Sripur Colliery. Contract agreement has been signed on 25.07.2018 for introduction of Highwall Mining Technology.
  •  

  • c) Man Riding System: During 2019-20 one set of Man Riding System has been introduced in Bansra UG Mine. Thus total number of functional Man Riding System is 10 (Ten) nos. viz. Jhanjra (3 nos. Free Steered Vehicle), Parasea, Nimcha, Bansra, Shyamsundarpur & Chinakuri Mine III (Chairlift System in each mine) and Chinakuri Mine I (2 nos. Battery Locomotive).
  •  

    Steps taken to improve underground coal production:

     

    Considering the various operational constraints, liquidation of upper seam, delay in availability of land for caving etc. actions have 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 coming years like Khottadih, Tilaboni, Siduli, Parasea-Belbaid apart from gradual phasing out of manual operations with the intermediate technology. Action has 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.
