Fighting coal mine fires in India

DMT GmbH & Co. KG and Sri Avantika Construction Ltd., its cooperating partner in India, have been commissioned by Coal India Ltd. to combat coal mine blazes in the state of West Bengal. In the first phase of the project DMT experts will work with their partner in India to locate underground fires with the help of geothermal and geophysical measurement techniques in the mining regions near the industrial city of Asansol in eastern India. This will enable expert monitoring and fighting of the fires. This procedure was used effectively to combat several coal mine fires in China in recent years.
