New Delhi/Sambalpur: Mahanadi Coalfields Limited’s (MCL) Chairman-cum-Managing Director (CMD) PK Sinha laid the foundation stone of Rs 268.05 crore First Mile Connectivity (PMC) project at Kaniha Area in Talcher Coalfields on July 18.
MCL’s Director (Technical/Operations) OP Singh, Director (Personnel) Keshav Rao and Director (Technical/Projects & Planning) Baban Singh were prominent among senior officers and trade union representatives who were present on the occasion.
The FMC project for RLS of 10 MTPY capacity, awarded to MECON Limited, is expected to complete by May 2023.
RLS/SILO ensures quick transportation of coal to consumers through automated loading in moving railway rakes, thus reduces the negative impact of dust in the atmosphere.
The CMD also inspected mining operations at Kaniha OCP and interacted with field managers.
“MCL is committed to providing clean coal with minimum impact to the environment. In this regard, the company is implementing nine PMC projects to provide a pollution-free state-of-the-art rake loading system at a total expenditure of Rs 3,600 crore. This will also generate a capacity of 126 MT per year,” an official statement said.
