Friday, 24 January 2020 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

A minor fire broke out at NMDC’s Kirandul Complex in Dantewada district recently but due to vigilant supervision and quick action of  company management a huge loss was averted.

According to an NMDC press release the fire incident took place on January 21 at one of the downhill conveyor belts of its Bailadila Iron ore mine- Kirandul   complex.

The company management not only managed the crisis well by controlling the fire timely, also ensured the flawless transportation of iron ore RoM (Run of Mines) through other conveyor belts of Kirandul Complex, the release said.

This was possible due to company  leadership which was monitored the incident on minute-to-minute basis.

The fire accident occurred due to friction at discharge end of    take-up pulley at 11/C downhill conveyor belt.

Acting on the     information, the CISF teams and fire brigade tenders from NMDC’s Kirandul and Bacheli complex immediately reached to the spot and controlled the fire.

According to       company officials, RoM iron ore material     transported through other conveyor belts of Kirandul complex.

Due to these       measures, production from this complex was not hampered. Restoration action is under progress and is expected to be ready soon.
