Adani Carmichael Coal mine and railway projects by Adani Group Australia have opened the doors for hundreds of employees to occupy key positions at different levels.
The Coal sector plays a key role in boosting the economy of several states in Australia and Queensland is no different. However, the technological advancements in the state have bolstered the prospects of the sector by a long way in recent times. The quality of coal procured from the mines in Queensland is also better than its competitors, aided by the enormous supply chain that involves several businesses and skilled workforce.
Despite that, new mining projects were finding it difficult to get approval from the state government, having agreed to the global initiative of lowering the emissions significantly by 2050. But, the rising demand for coal has pressed the authorities to allow the new coal mines to operate, albeit in a systematic manner. Some of the new coal mines on the scene include Kevin’s Corner coal mine, Olive Downs coal mine, Carmichael mine by Adani Group, Australia, among others.
These coal mines intend to produce coal with low impurities that would meet the growing demand, while also limiting the emissions. The best thing about all these mines is the involvement of local skilled manpower. As the coal sector is expanding in the region, job opportunities are growing for the local communities. Deployment of low emission technologies and enhanced research capabilities are paving the way for the coal sector to emerge as an efficient industry.
For instance, Adani Carmichael Coal mine and railway projects by Adani Group Australia have opened the doors for hundreds of employees to occupy key positions at different levels needed to ensure uninterrupted operations at the site. While the Adani Carmichael mine is set to start production by 2021, the rail project is also undergoing decent progress. Both the projects are important for the future of coal mining in Queensland.
What remains to be seen is whether more projects will be given a go-ahead in the Galilee Basin or it’s going to be a game of patience for other companies to secure the approvals.
