Title: Coal Transport by Slurry Pipelines in India

The main hurdle in using the indigenous coal throughout India is non-availability of transport linkages from coal mines to distant power stations. The available rail lines are already saturated with passenger and freight traffic and unable to take up the additional coal freight. One alternative to overcome this bottleneck is to implement cross country coal slurry pipe lines. The coal deposits are located mainly in central part of the country. Coal can be transported from this region by slurry pipelines economically to any place in India with a maximum slurry pipeline length of 1500 KM. It is roughly estimated that Rs 800 per ton of coal is the present day cost for transporting coal over 1500 KM by coal slurry pipeline.
