Economic Times reported that NMDC has moved a step closer to commissioning the Coke Oven Battery at its upcoming three million tonne greenfield steel plant at Nagarnar by charging the Coal Handling System to initiate the commissioning of the coal route of the plant's raw material handling system. NMDC's INR15,525 crore steel plant project in Bastar is slated to be commissioned in September 2018.

The charging of the Coal Handling System gains significance because the three million tonne per annum (mtpa) capacity Nagarnar Steel Plant is expected to handle close to 2.5 million tonne of coking coal annually to feed its two Coke Ovens. The CHS was charged in the presence of Prasant Dash, Executive Director and Project In-charge of Nagarnar Iron & Steel Plant (NISP), senior officials of NISP and MECON, the consultancy partner, workers' representatives and officials from BHEL's Industrial Systems Group, Bangalore, the project commissioning partner.

Earlier this month, NMDC had started the 220KV GIS (Gas Insulated Switch) Main Receiving Sub-station, followed by power supply to the Sinter Plant. Of the steel plant's total power requirement of 296MW, NMDC proposes to take 241 MW from the grid through Chattisgarh State Power Transmission Corporation Limited (CSPTCL) while the balance will be generated in-house. Subsequently, as per schedule, power will be stepped down to 33KV and conducted to the 11 sub-stations that will distribute power to different units of the steel plant by the Plant Power Distribution System (PPDS) through overhead cable gallery system. The power sub-station packages that will be activated subsequently are the Raw Material Handling Plant, Coke Oven, Blast Furnace, Steel Melting Shop, Hot Strip Mill, Lime & Dolomite Calcination Plant and Railway Yard.
