Coal India’s subsidiary– Northern Coalfields has reportedly inaugurated a new wharf-wall at MGR route line of company’s Nigahi coal producing area to reduce coal transportation by road. The said route line is used by Nigahi for transporting coal to NTPC Vindhyachal.
The new wharf-wall will help supply additional 3-4 rakes (approximately 9000 to 12,000 tonnes) of coal to NTPC Vindhyachal. The additional supplies of coal through wharf-wall will halve the transportation of coal from road thereby contributing significantly towards environmental protection.
Coal India is the world’s largest coal mining company. It also produces non-coking coal and coking coal of various grades for diverse applications.
