Availability of equipment suffered mainly because:

The percentage availability of HEMM like Shovel, Dumper, Dozer and Drill were more than CMPDIL norms during the period 2019-20. The percentage availability of Shovel, Dozer and Drill were also more in comparison to the last year same period. The percentage availability of Dragline was less due to failure of pinion bearing and armature and frequent worn out of pinion teeth of hoist motor-2. Grid and grid cover of Drag-1 were broken. The percentage availability of dumper is less than last year due to ageing of the equipment. 15 nos. of 35T and 2 nos. of 40T dumpers have been surveyed off because they have covered their life both in years and hours.

 

Remedial action taken to achieve the CMPDIL norms:

Worldwide population of this type of Dragline is only 6/7 nos. In India only 2nos. are available (i.e. 1 no. in ECL and 1 no. in SCCL). Since the population is very less and also the OEM has also changed, the stock of spares is not being maintained by the present OEM. The spares are being manufactured/arranged only after receipt of orders. As such the lead-time between indenting and receipt of spares is approximately 1.5 years. However, advance spare parts planning are being taken based on past experience and life of the components.

Procurement action has been taken for 18 nos. of 60T dumpers and 13 nos. of 35T dumpers against unreliable surveyed off dumpers. Out of these, 10 nos. of 35T dumpers and 4 nos. of 60T dumpers have been commissioned during 2019-20. The rest dumpers will be commissioned in 2020-21. These new dumpers will help in improving the availability of the equipment.

Utilization of equipment suffered mainly because:

Project

Reasons of less Utilisation.

Remedial action taken

Shankarpur

1. Underground galleries, fiery face.

2. Marshy surface.

3. Difficult mining conditions.

Regularly spraying water through 28KL water sprinkler and chemical to suppress the fire.

 

North Searsole

Out of 11 nos. of 35T dumpers and 2 nos. of 40T dumpers, 6 nos. of 35T dumpers and 1 no. of 40T dumpers have been surveyed off because they have completed their life both in terms of years and hours.

7 nos. of 35T dumpers were commissioned during January-2020 to March-2020.

Bonjemehari

OB is outsourced, only coal is departmental. Less exposure of coal due to accumulation of water in coal-face.

 

Dewatering is being done through 2 nos. of 500 GPM pumps

Gourangdi

The production in Gourangdi OCP is in initial stage after transfer of equipment from Begunia, which was closed from 7th August, 2019 to 10th October, 2019 due to imposition of Sec. 22 by DGMS. Problem of land acquisition.

Demographic survey of land has already been done. Land acquisition is under progress.

Barmuri

Limited working space, narrow haul road for only one dumper can ply.

Recently action has been taken for transfer of mining lease from BCCL to ECL. Already approved by Subsidiary Board and presently under approval at CIL Board.

 

Gopinathpur

The mine is closed.

-

Chitra

 

As working in deepest portion of the mine, there is increase of lead and lift. Due to long pending stage-II forest clearance, the horizontal expansion of the mine is restricted causing deepening of the face and high gradient resulting less capacity utilization. 9 nos. of 35T and 1 no. of 40T dumpers have been surveyed off due to outlived equipment (covered its life both in years and hours).

4 nos. of 60T dumpers have been commissioned in March, 2020 and 1 dumper is under commissioning.

Khottadih

Land acquisition problem due to resistance by villagers. Operation of HEMM in a confined strike length of mine - less working area due to land acquisition problem.

The top edge movement is completely stopped since March-2019. After negotiation, 6 Hectare land has been acquired and production started since last three months. But there is repeated interruption by villagers during operation and blasting, hence production is suffered.

 

Sonepur Bazari

Dearth of dumping space and increase in lead of dumping yard due to delay in shifting of over-head lines of six feeders. There is also shortage of Dragline operator. At present there are only 3 nos. of Dragline operators.

 

The job of shifting is still in progress and will be completed in the month of June, 2020. New Trainee Dragline Operators have been inducted and are now being trained.

Rajmahal

Due to concentrated working place, crowding of equipment’s and also land acquisition problem.

 

Land has been partially acquired.
