Western Coalfields Limited (WCL), a subsidiary of Maharatna Coal India, has successfully commissioned a hydraulic excavator at the Durgapur opencast mine (OCM) and a dozer and a hydraulic excavator at the Bhatadi OCM in Chandrapur Area, Maharashtra, to improve mining operations and boost production.
Coal India announced the successful commissioning of the new HEMMs by WCL on Twitter, emphasizing their importance in increasing operational capabilities. The deployment of this innovative machinery demonstrates WCL and Coal India’s commitment to update and optimize mining methods while increasing efficiency and safety.
The addition of these heavy earth moving machines (HEMMs) is expected to give the on-the-ground workers a distinct advantage, allowing them to maximize output and easily meet production targets, according to the tweet.
The newly commissioned hydraulic excavator at the Durgapur OCM and the dozer and hydraulic excavator at the Bhatadi OCM are expected to revolutionise the mining process by enabling faster excavation and material handling.
These devices have cutting-edge technology and features that improve performance, productivity, and overall operational effectiveness. WCL hopes to streamline and expedite coal extraction by incorporating these HEMMs into their operations, reducing downtime and optimizing resource utilization. The increased capabilities of these machines will enable the staff to more effectively reach production targets, contributing to WCL’s overall growth and success.
The commissioning of these HEMMs is part of Coal India’s ongoing efforts to modernise the mining sector and leverage advanced technologies to improve efficiency and productivity.
