NLC India sets up new conveyor system
NLC India has launched a new conveyor system to transport lignite from Mine-1A to the thermal power station. Making a save of Rs 180 million, the conveyor system was set up with innovative ideas by the engineers and NLC India’s employees without any new purchase. With a production capacity of 3 million tonne per year, Mine-1A was built to serve as an independent power producer to cement factories present in Tamil Nadu. The new conveyor measuring 832 metre with 1,500 mm belt can carry 1,000 tonne of lignite per hour and was linked with the existing conveyor system.
