To address issues such as productivity, safety, environment and also output at a competitive price.

In line with its mechanisation and modernisation programme, Tata Steel’s Jharia Division has commissioned the state-of-the-art 2 million tonnes per annum Coal Preparation Plant and 400 kilovolt-ampere (kVA) Uninterrupted Power Supply for Main Mechanical Ventilator at Jamadoba Colliery.

The modern beneficiation plant not only addresses issues such as productivity, safety and environment but also production of coal at a competitive price, he said.

The coal preparation plant has been transformed from the oldest running washery in Asia (in operation since 1952) to one of the most modern washeries across the globe.

This is also the first washery in the country with a 100 per cent dewatering facility built in the plant.

The giant UPS provides an uninterrupted power supply to the 450 horsepower mine fan. It automatically changes over during power failure from DVC and keeps it running for 40 minutes, giving enough time for power restoration or change-over to captive supply, said the company.
