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 2017-18. As on 31.3.2018, 274 no of SDLs, 31 no of LHDs and 70 nos of UDMs were on roll (inclusive initial Survey-off equipments) in different underground mines of ECL. During 2017-18, production achieved from 274 no of SDLs was 4.24 Mt., from 31 no of LHDs was 0.87 Mt and from 2 no of Road header (Part of Longwall Package) is 0.16 Mt.

"Mass production technology" by deploying Continuous Miner combined with Shuttle car had been deployed at Jhanjra and Sarpi projects. The production achieved during 2017-18 from 3 Nos. of CM was 1.72 MT. Jhanjra Longwall panel commissioned in Aug-2016 & production during 2017-18 was 1.48 MT (Excluding Road header).

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

  1. Coal Bed Methane (CBM): Draft PFR prepared. Clarification sought from MoP&NG related to applicability of ORD Act and P&G Rules within Coal mining Lease hold areas.
  2. Excavation: To increase operational efficiency though 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 used in OC Mines wherever technically possible.
  3. Highwall Mining: The highwall mining is proposed to be introduced in Nimcha and Sripur Colliery.
  4. Man Riding System: Man riding system has been functional in three mines viz. Jhanjra, Parasea and Chinakuri Mine III. Man Riding Systems are under installation at four mines, viz. Shyamsundarpur, Nimcha, Dhemomain and Bansra.

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 like Jhanjra Low height CM, Kumardihi B, Khottadih, Tilaboni, Sidhuli 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.

New Initiatives and Future Programme:

Following initiative have been taken in 2017-18 for augmentation of production from underground:

  1. Technological up-gradation and Modernization of existing UG mines:The existing underground mines which have been identified for Technological up-gradation and Modernization are Badjna, Shyampur B, Siduli, Ghusick and Nimcha. Project Report and Draft Project Report for Siduli and Ghusick have already been prepared respectively.
    Apart from above, 23 nos. of UG Mines were undertaken for study of enhancement of production by Consortium of M/s ISM, M/s SCCL and M/s PWC. This is as per the MoC/CIL’s directive. Report has been submitted in Jan-2018.
