Uninterrupted Supply Of Electricity
For the purpose of obtaining power from two different sources as a single user to maintain an uniterrupted supply of electricity, a seperate dedicated power-line has been constructed by PDB by replacing the shared line being used currently; this is in addition to a 33 KV dedicated line installed previously. The new 33 KV dedicated line has been used to supply electricity straightway from the national grid to the coal mine through a 132/33 kv transformer thereby reducing the risk power outage in the coal mine. In parallel, during the past contract, two new generators were installed and there was another one from the previous contract combinedly having the total capacity of 8.8 MW to supply emergency power in underground at the time of PDB power failure. Besides, there are the provisions of installing 3 new Generators each of 3.38 MW capacity under the current contract to cope with ever increasing emergency power requirement.
