Coal India Ltd. Floats Tenders For 35 Mining Projects

  • On Monday, the government-run agency Coal India Limited has floated tenders for 35 mining projects.

  • They have been identified for the mechanised transportation of dry fuel and setting up of coal handling plants and loading of silos. The project is estimated to be ₹12,500 crores.

  • The mechanized transportation of coal involves the movement of coal through a piped conveyor belt. This technique is environment friendly.

  • "Coal India's pitch for efficient and environment-friendly mechanised coal transportation in its first-mile connectivity, replacing the road movement, gained pace with the company successfully issuing tenders for all the 35 projects, of phase-1, by September 2020 as planned," the state-run agency said in a statement.
