Installation of 1.571 MW Roof Top Solar:

SECI had floated RFS tender for installation of 97.5 MW Roof Top Solar Power Plant throughout India. This includes 1.571 MW Roof Top Solar Plant of ECL. As per this RFS tender of SECI, separate quotation is asked from the bidder for implementation of Roof Top Solar Power Plant either on CAPEX mode (design, engineering, supply, installation, commissioning, testing and O&M for 5 years at customer’s cost) or on RESCO mode (design, engineering, supply, installation, commissioning, testing and O&M for 25 years at bidder’s cost. Customer has to pay per unit cost to the bidder.) The tender has been finalized by SECI and the list of successful bidders has been communicated. ECL has communicated with the selected bidders (both – qualified for CAPEX mode @ Rs. 26,000/ kWp and RESCO mode @ 3.33/ kWp)  of Zone 3 and shall execute agreement for execution of roof top Solar Plant in CAPEX/ RESCO mode as per response and allocated capacity of the Successful Bidders.

 

Energy Conservation & Audit:

During 2019-20 ECL had focused on energy conservation through improvement of power factor in most of its underground mines. Capacitor banks of different rating have been procured and installed at units having both – low power factor and demand higher than the contract demand. Average power factor of ECL is now 0.95. This indeed has reduced average energy consumption of those points and reduced the demand. Net Gain from Power Factor Rebate has been increased to Rs. 11.36 Crore in FY 2019-20 from that of Rs. 10.77 Crore in FY 2018-19 i.e. increased by 5.41%. Energy consumption of ECL has been reduced to 8249.70 L.KWH in FY 2019-20 from that of 8463.04 L.KWH in FY 2018-19 i.e. reduced by 213.36 L.KWH (2.52%).

 

Steps have also been taken towards segregation of domestic load from industrial load. At Parbelia, Sodepur Area through a scheme launched by State Govt., all domestic load through ECL network has been shifted to WBSEDCL network. ECL is paying WBSEDCL only for the enrolled employees of ECL as per meter reading. Total energy consumption of Parbelia has reduced to 43.41% in FY 2019-20 as compared to FY 2018-19. This has resulted a financial savings of Rs. 3.25 Crore.

Performance of CHPs:

As on 31st March 2020, the two Major CHPs at Sonepur Bazari and Rajmahal handled 15.60 MT and two Mini CHPs at Shyamsundarpur and Kenda handled 1.00 MT of coal.

 

Major achievements during 2019-20:

  1. Energy Consumption of ECL has reduced to 8249.70 L. kWh in FY: 2019-20 from 8463.04 L. kWh i.e. reduction by 2.52%.
  2. Total Power Cost of ECL has reduced to Rs. 599.60 Crore in FY: 2019-20 from Rs. 611.07 Crore in FY: 2018-19 i.e. reduction by 1.877%.
  3. Net Gain from Power Factor Rebate has increased to Rs. 11.36 Crore in FY: 2019-20 from that of Rs. 10.77 Crore in FY: 2018-19 i.e. increase by 5.41%.
  4. Mechanized Production has increased by 2.54 lakh Te.
  5. Productivity of SDL has increased by 12%.
  6. Productivity of LHD has increased by 20%.
  7. To avoid non-uniform specification at different Areas, a common NIT for procurement of CCTV cameras establishing control room with live feed has been prepared and approved and is under process of implementation.
  8. Chair-lift type Man-Riding System has been successfully commissioned at Bansra Colliery, Kunustoria.
