BOT PROJECT AT DAITARI IRON ORE MINE, OMC
This fully Mechanized Old Mine of 2.0 MTPA capacity, commissioned in 1974 could not achieve more than 30 % of the Capacity as the Crushing and Ore Handling Plant (OHP) was the major bottle neck.
KCCL accepted the challenge of BOT contract for modification of OHPand completed in record time. But commencement of operation was delayed for nearly 3 Years due to delay in Statutory Clearance. Starting in November 2014, this project immediately achieved rated capacity in 2014-15 and 2015-16. During 2016-17 with production of 2.63 MTPA,KCCL successfully produced 2.61 million MT in 2017-18, 2.30 Million MT in 2018-19 and 3.0 Million MT in 2019-20 and also in 2020-21.
The capacity of the mine has been enhanced to 3.0 MTPA with scope of production of 4.5 MTPA.It is now planned to enhance the annual production to 6.0 MTPA subject to approval of OMC and other statutory bodies.
