SCCL The Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) is a Government coal mining company jointly owned by the Government of Telangana and Government of India on a 51:49 equity basis. The Singareni coal reserves stretch across 350 Km of the Pranahita – Godavari Valley of Telangana with a proven geological reserve aggregating to whopping 8791 million tons. SCCL is currently operating 16 opencast and 30 underground mines in 4 districts of Telangana with a manpower around 58,837.While historically technology has been a critical factor in SCCL’s ability to reduce environmental impacts and occupational hazards, the need to constantly increase productivity and cut costs has demanded that the company goes in for phased mechanization and adapts state-of-the-art technologies.

SCCL pioneered mechanization of coal mines in India by adopting coal drilling machines as far back as in 1937. In 1950 Shuttle Cars, Gathering Arm Loaders, Conveyors, and Coal Plough Equipment were introduced. Later in a path-breaking move to replace arduous manual labor, Road Headers, Load Haul Dumpers and Side Dump Loaders were gradually brought in.
A combination of modern machines in Open Cast Mining like Walking Draglines, Shovels and High Capacity Dumpers were introduced in 1975. In-pit Crushing and Conveyor technology for Over Burden removal and coal extraction was commissioned for the first time in Ramagundam Open Cast Mine with German assistance in 1994.
In 2002, Surface Miner Technology which not only facilitates cost reduction but also contributes to eco-friendly mining was introduced for the first time. Longwall technology in Under Ground Mining in 1983 and also Blasting Gallery (BG) Technology in 1989 were other notable introductions. Today, with 4 Longwall Panels and 5 BG Panels working in the company, mechanization of Under Ground Mines is being planned with state-of-the-art technologies like Continuous Miner and Punch Longwall. Already the mechanization of Under Ground Mining has seen the commissioning of 104 Side Discharge Loaders and 37 Load Haul Dumpers that have enhanced safety and productivity during the last four years. Other innovations in Under Ground Mines are 35 man-riding systems (chairlift and railcar) that have improved transportation inside the mines.
From Heritage to Hi-tech: In a state that is fast emerging as the IT hub of the country and hosts one of the Asia’s largest Technology Parks, it was but natural that IT entered the realm of mining as well. And SCCL made a head start in harnessing the benefits of IT by developing proprietary software for integrated Open Cast and Under Ground Mine Management Systems.
From automating the Personnel Records to Material Management Systems, many new measures were initiated in the IT sphere to improve productivity. To stay in tune with the online world, and keep customers and other stakeholders informed about the developments in SCCL, the company launched its website www.scclmines.com.
Initiatives that have cemented SCCL’s strength in IT are Video Conferencing, Integrated Mine Management Applications, and e-procurement. Digitization of mine plans by Minex Software was yet another major initiative. This software supports core areas of geological data management, opencast and underground mine design and scheduling.Other IT initiatives that are on the anvil or are being implemented on an experimental basis include the use of Satellite based communication systems for monitoring Heavy Earth Moving Machinery using Global Positioning Systems and Biometric based Attendance Monitoring Systems. A dedicated cross-functional team forms the core of the Software Development Group to provide in-house software solutions and the company is all set to become an ERP based company in the coming years.
