Adhunik Metaliks begins mining at 3 Orissa mines

Domestic steelmaker Adhunik Metaliks today said one of its arm has begun mining at three manganese mines in Orissa even as it awaits regulatory nod to start development of an iron ore deposit in the state.

"Adhunik Metaliks has informed...That Orissa Manganese and Minerals, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Adhunik Metaliks, has started the mining operations in non-forest areas of three of its manganese ore mines.

"Further the Central Empower Committee (CEC) has approved the mining operations in Suleipat Iron Ore Mines over non- forest area of about 370 acres (150 hectares). ...The Company is now awaiting the state approval for commencement of mining," the firm said in a filing to Bombay Stock Exchange.
The subsidiary--Orissa Manganese & Minerals (OMML) has commenced mining operations at its three manganese ore mines ---Tentulidihi, Sanpatholi and Kusunidihi-- in the state.

While the company has paid the initial sum-- the Net Present Value (NPV)-- for the three manganese mines during the the last quarter.

Further, the company said it has got initial approval from the Central Empower Committee to mine iron ore from Suleipat iron ore deposits in the state for which it has already paid, but certain regulatory approvals are required to start the developmental work.

OMML is involved in the exploration, development, mining and processing of mineral assets.

It has six manganese ore mines in Orissa and one iron ore mine in Jharkhand. It is currently operating in Ghatkuri iron ore mines in Jharkhand (near Gua) and three manganese ore mines in Koira, Orissa. However, the Company's major operations are undertaken in Ghatkuri iron ore mines and Patmunda manganese ore mines.

Orissa signs final pact for Rs.6,500 crore port project

Orissa Monday signed a final agreement with Hyderabad-based Navayuga Engineering Company Ltd for a Rs.6,500 crore port project, an official said.

The full-fledged all-weather port would be built by the company at Astaranga in Puri by 2015 on a build, own, operate, share and transfer (BOOST) basis, G.K. Dhal, secretary of the commerce and transport department, told IANS.

The company will submit a detailed project report within a year, Dhal said after signing the final agreement, also known as a concession agreement, with a senior official of the company in the state secretariat.

The port will initially handle 25 million tonnes of cargo per annum and will further expand to 70 million tonnes per annum, he said.

At the initial phase, dredging will be done up to 15.5 metres which will ultimately reach 20 metres. It will cater to ultimate vessel size of 1.75 lakh DWT (Dead Weight Tonnage), he said.

The government had earlier entered into an initial pact with the company in 2008 for the project. The concession agreement was signed as part of the terms and conditions in the initial pact, he said.

Rs 2400-cr plan by Orissa to check power losses

With a view to improving the power distribution system and reduce aggregated technical and commercial loss (AT & C), the Orissa government has launched a project with an investment of Rs 2,400 crore between 2010-11 and 2013-14. The state government will provide Rs 1,200 crore out of the total investment for the capital expenditure programme (CAPEX). The four distribution companies will generate the other half.
"The investment is aimed to develop commensurate technologically advanced distribution infrastructure to effect reliable and stable power supply in the state with minimum loss in the distribution system," said Naveen Patnaik, Orissa chief minister.

Orissa has signed an MoU 27 with power companies to set up independent power plants to boost the power generation in the state from the present capacity of 4,000 megawatt (mw) to 40,000 mw

Orissa gives nod for land acquisition for ArcelorMittal plant

The Orissa government has accorded administrative approval for acquisition of 4905.19 acres of private land for the 12 million tonne mega steel project proposed by ArcleorMittal at Patana tehsil in Keonjhar district.

The state water resources department has also allotted 140 cusecs of water for this steel plant. This was stated by Raghunath Mohanty, the minister for industries and steel & mines, in response to a query in the state assembly.

ArclelorMittal, the world's largest steel maker, had entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the state government on December 21, 2006 for a 12 million tonne steel plant.
The mega project involved an investment of around Rs 40,000 crore.
As per the MoU, the project needed around 8000 acres of land.

The state government owned Industrial Promotion and Investment Corporation of Orissa Ltd (Ipicol) had approved 7002.72 acres of land for the steel plant and an additional 750.58 acres for the plant township.

Out of 7002 acres earmarked for the steel plant, government land is 2583.53 acres with the balance 4419.18 acres being private land.

The villages where land is to be acquired for the steel plant are Chilida, Angikala, Chemana, Nuagaonbalabhadrapur, Raikala, Dharuapada,Kimirdapasi, Bhringaraj, Birudipusi, Padmakesharpur, Kodakhemana, Bradaungua, Jamunapasi and Padmapur.

The township project will be spread over 750 cares in Chilida and Baliapsi villages.

It may be noted ArclelorMittal chairman, LN Mittal in a recent media interview had expressed dissatisfaction over slow progress of land acquisition and allotment of mining lease for his projects in India and favoured setting up of smaller steel plants at different locations in the country instead of going for mega ventures

Tata Steel's Orissa project will kick-start by Jan

The construction of the six-MTPA steel plant in Orissa by Tata Steel is likely to begin from January, a top company official said today.

"Hopefully, the construction work of the plant will begin next month and will be completed by mid-2013," Tata Sons director J J Irani said today on the sidelines of an event at the CII-Suresh Neotia Centre of Excellence here.

In May this year, Tata Steel even performed a low-key 'bhoomi puja' at the site in the Kalinga Nagar Industrial Complex.

He said land was a big problem for industry and the agitation at Kalinga Nagar had led to a three-year delay in project implementation that led to substantial cost escalation.

Irani did not provide details on the cost escalation.

Speaking on the steel industry, Irani said the production target of 100 million tonnes by 2014-15 could be realised as demand for steel remained bouyant.

Good to see action on ground .. means if land aquisition is being completed and construction starts then it really shows that all the MOU's are not gas but are solid projects ..

I think this is a big difference between Jharkhand and orissa .. both have signed a lot of MOUs but because of lack of responsible govt in jharkhand most of the MOU's have just vanished into the thin air .. except for a few projects like electrosteel , Jinndal steels and now Posco is doing some work ...


We need more development in the mineral rich states of orissa , Chattisgarh and Jharkhand ... I am glad Orissa is showing the way !!

Land acquisition for OPTCL's 2000 Mw power plant soon

Land acquisition for the proposed 2000 Mw power plant planned by Orissa Thermal Power Corporation Ltd (OTPCL), a 50:50 joint venture between state owned PSUs- Orissa Mining Corporation (OMC) and Orissa Hydro Power Corporation (OHPC), will take off soon.

The project needs 2000 acres in all, out of which government land is 55 per cent, private land 42 per cent and forest land comprises only three per cent.

“The site for the 2000 MW power project of OPTCL has been finalized at Kamakhya Nagar. The land acquisition process will be set in motion soon. Only two small habitations will be displaced by the project. A rehabilitation colony and an ash pond will also be set up as part of the project”, a top official source told Business Standard.
Initially, the power project was to be set up at Rengali in Sambalpur district but it had to be relocated to Kamakhya Nagar as the Kaniha coal block falling under the previous site was declared as a ‘No-Go area’ by the Union ministry of environment and forests (MoEF) in August last year.

Power production from this 2000 Mw plant is expected to take off from 2015-16.

The decision to build the 2000 Mw power project was taken up by the state government in June 2006. Thereafter, the board of directors of OMC and OHPC had agreed to form a joint venture company on January 29, 2007.

No coal block has been allotted by the Centre to OTPCL for the thermal power project. However, it has been decided to use the Baitarani West coal block allotted to OHPC and Mandakini-B coal block allotted to OMC for the project.

Bhubaneswar, Feb 4 (PTI) Carrying forward its industrialisation process, Orissa government today approved investment proposals of Rs 3,400 crore in steel, cement and paper sector, official sources said.The proposals from different companies were approved by the State Level Single Window Clearance Committee (SLWCC) headed by Chief Secretary B K Patnaik.Of the total Rs 3,400 crore investment proposals approved by the SLSWCC, Rs 2,870 crore would be in the steel sector, said industries secretary T Ramachandru.Among other projects, SLWCC approved a proposal from Tata Steel to set up a re-bar mill and a hi-carbon ferrochrome unit at its Gopalpur SEZ in Ganjam district. The steel major would invest Rs 800 crore in the project, he said.As the Tatas had earlier dropped their plan to set up a mega steel plant at Gopalpur due to scarcity of water, this time the company had been asked to use water through the process of desalination, Ramachandru said.While the Tata Steel was planning to manufacture 4 lakh metric ton of re-bar mill per annum from its re-bar mill unit, it would produce 55,000 metric tons of hi-carbon ferrochrome at the Gopalpur SEZ to be set up by the company.Other steel units included a 0.6 mtpa integrated plant at an investment of Rs 925 crore by Shyam Steel Industry, Sri Bajrang Power & Ispat company's 0.12 mtpa steel plant at an investment of Rs 500 crore and another 0.21 mtpa plant at an investment of Rs 645 crore by Rupa Ispat, he said.Aryan Mining and Trading Corporation Limited's proposal for setting up an ore benefication plant at Koeda in Sundargarh district at an investment of Rs 423 crore was also okayed, he said.Kashivi International's proposal to set up an iron ore pellet plant at an investment of Rs 56 crore was also cleared.Binani Cement Limited which had initially decided to set up a cement plant at Dhamra in Bhadrak district had been allowed to shift its unit to Kalinga Nagar in Jajpur district.Replying a question, the industries secretary said the projects were approved keeping in view the availability of water close to their proposed plant sites.

PowerMin hopes to get Orissa UMPP clearance tom

The Power Ministry is hopeful of receiving conditional forest clearance for coal to be mined in blocks attached to the proposed 4,000 MW UMPP in Orissa tomorrow, as invitation of preliminary bids has been hanging fire for a long time due to environment issues.

"The Ministry of Environment and Forests is likely to send the clearance report for the Orissa ultra-mega power project (UMPP) tomorrow... They have put certain conditions for the same," a senior Power Ministry official told PTI.

The MOEF may provide conditional forest clearance to the project, stating that the two coal blocks which fell in "no-go" areas will be only be given to two power projects, though three fall within the area.

"Two coal blocks may be pulled out of the no-go area, thereby allowing mining in those mines... But that is likely to be for only two projects," the official said, adding that there are three power projects being developed in that particular area.
One project is the 4,000 MW ultra mega power project at Bedabahal, the second one is an NTPC project and the third is a state government project.

The MOEF is believed to have asked the Power Ministry to decide which of these two projects should get the coal blocks, as providing mines for all three projects would be difficult.

"We will see what can be done after we receive the official documents from the MoEF," he added.

Power Finance, the nodal agency for implementation of ultra-mega power projects in the country, has already postponed the process of inviting preliminary bids for the Orissa project till March next month.

This is the seventh time the bidding process for the project has been delayed due to environmental hurdles.

The MoEF had put three coal blocks allotted to the project -- Meenakshi, Meenakshi B and the dipside of Meenakshi -- in "no-go" areas, which means mining cannot take place in these areas, as it may cause damage to the environment.

This had resulted in delaying the bidding process for the project, as developers are shying away from committing their capital in the absence of the requisite clearances.

The government has so far allotted four UMPPs, of which three -- Sasan (Madhya Pradesh), Krishnapatnam (Andhra Pradesh) and Tilaiya (Jharkhand) -- have been bagged by Reliance Power and the one at Mundra in Gujarat by Tata Power.

These UMPPs are going to contribute significantly towards the government's ambitious plans of adding about 1,00,000 MW of electricity in the next Five-Year Plan (2012-17).
