The opencast coal mine, operated by a subsidiary of the largest Indian public sector coal mining company, is located in Singrauli district of Madhya Pradesh, India and is one of the major producers of non-coking coal in the country since 1986.

The mine has now taken an important step to meet their planned target of increasing the production from 10 million tpy to 25 million tpy by implementing an IPCC system, which will also makes the production process more efficient and stable. The system consists of three in pit semi-mobile-crushing plants (SMCP) for their 15 million tpy incremental Coal Handling Plant (CHP). Thyssenkrupp has been awarded by a renowned Indian EPC contractor for complete design, engineering, manufacturing & supply and TAG services for those three Semi-Mobile Crushing Plant.

The plants consist out of three separated modules. The receiving hopper module with its’ 2.2 m wide and 10.5 m long, heavy duty apron feeder is fed by trucks and has a capacity of approximately 150 t. The heart of each of the plants is the crusher module using a RollSizer DRS 1000 x 2250 (centre distance times the length of the roller) giving a maximum capacity of 1900 tph. The third module is the electrical building with the operator room. By separating it from the crusher module, the operators and the electrical equipment are not exposed to any vibrations from the crushing process and thereby the plants meet all requirements on health and safety and guarantees a long life time of the electrical equipment.

Compared to stationary crushing plants, SMCPs are more flexible and can be relocated, when the distance between the mining area and the crushing plant increases and thereby can reduce the cost for transport of the ROM material significantly. Thyssenkrupp can look back on a long history of supplying fully-mobile, semi-mobile, and stationary crushing plants, which makes the company a leading partner for the engineering, construction and service of industrial plants and systems for the coal industry.
