Few Industrial Projects Completed

Market entry strategy for international company into the United States
During Spring 2016, I participated in IXL Innovation Olympics 2016 Winter Challenge with my friend and colleague, Aniket Sakpal to develop a market entry strategy for a foreign company into the United States. As part of the competition, we conducted market research and came up with opportunities, business concepts and business case study, introduced ideas and strategies based on data analysis and came up with a Business strategy for the company. Our team was declared the Winner of IXL Innovation Olympics 2016 Winter Challenge.

Design effective dust suppression system

Complying with environmental policies and regulations in a 10 million ton producing surface coal mine during my tenure as Environment Project Manager at Coal India Limited, the largest coal producing company in the world, I got a first-hand experience on how to measure and mitigate dust in a mine. Exposure to coal dust was measured using personal dust sampler and it was found to be above the exposure limit. Designing an effective dust suppression system to minimize dust generation was an efficient application of knowledge to real problems in the mining industry.

Risk Assessment and Standards Compliance

I studied policies and regulations related to health and safety during my tenure as Project Safety Manager. Minimizing incidences and reducing fatal injuries to zero was the priority. I conducted the risk assessment of various operations and events in the mine in accordance with the guidelines of SIMTARS. To achieve this goal, processes to acquire certification for ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OSHA 18001 were initiated and the company was certified with all three certifications. This resulted in the reduction of fatal injuries to zero, and the company amended its policy to implement risk assessment in all the mines it operated.

Design, Develop and Establish Road Dispatch System

I commissioned four road weighbridges to establish a road dispatch system in a 10MTY surface coal mine to increase dispatch quantity by 4 million tons. I coordinated with government organizations for licensing requirement, calibration and stamping, and manufacturer for services and maintenance and developed a dispatch strategy with checks at every step to ensure zero pilferage.
