A half-kilometre manned sea dive in the making

Quote:
Scientists working on submersible hope to go deeper in future

A group of Indian scientists are working on a mission to send a researcher in a spherical submersible vehicle, half a kilometre into the recesses of the Indian Ocean. If they succeed, it will pave the way for a bigger mission to send a three-member team in a titanium sphere, 6,000 metres into the sea to scout for little-known life-forms and precious metals.

Satheesh Shenoi, Director of the National Institute of Ocean Technology—the coordinating scientific body—said talks were on with Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, Tiruchi, to fabricate the submersible vehicle. “They are quite confident that they will be able to make a titanium sphere capable of a 500-metre dive,” he said.

“We hope to get clearance from the Union Cabinet by March and then another five years for a 6,000-metre vessel.

The 500m vessel should be ready in two years.”

Titanium is the preferred material to make submersibles as it can withstand the enormous pressure of water at great depths. However, being able to manufacture a perfect sphere is beyond the capability of Indian foundries and there is no consensus within the scientific establishment, on whether such a sphere (diving 6,000 metres) needs to be made abroad.

Once it is lowered into the sea, the personnel in the sphere are guaranteed a challenging assignment of at least 8-10 hours. The pressurised sphere will have a diameter not exceeding 3.2 metres and “the crew of three”— the vehicle’s pilot and the others making observations—will have to be prostrate, unable to sit or stand. The glass windows will allow them to observe and collect samples using robotic arms.

ISRO helps out

The submersible could cost around ₹450 crore, comparable to the Mars Orbiter Mission’s cost. “We’ve had discussions with ISRO also because many aspects of the design are common to space missions. Like oxygen filtration,” explained Mr. Shenoi.

BHEL ancillaries are going bankrupt

Very many ancillary units of Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) are literally in the red; actually, at the receiving end of banks.

As many as 200 of the over 400 units have reportedly closed down operations over the last few years, reflecting the scaled-down orders bagged by BHEL.

And, over 100 units are stated to be on the verge of closure at the mercy of banks in a helpless situation even as immovable properties the ancillaries had pledged as collatoral security are being confiscated under the Securitisation and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest (Sarfaesi) Act

“The situation is really bad for the Small and Medium Enterprises units that used to provide 20,000 direct jobs and as many indirect jobs when the conditions was ideal. Rather than confiscating properties that would spell doom for the SME sector in Tiruchi that had flourished for decades, the Central Government must intervene with offers of moratorium on the loans, and fresh capital infusion to make the most of the strength of Tiruchi as a fabrication hub and sustain the operations of the ancillary units by diverting orders from defence equipment manufacturers,” Rajappa Rajkumar, Chairman of BRAMAS (BHELSIA Raw Materials) Industrial Service Association, said, adding that ancillary units have proposed to start 'Save Tiruchi SMEs' programme. The focus of the initiative will be to prevail upon the government to accord priority for saving existing SMEs over creating new ones, Mr. Rajkumar said.

The BHEL Small Industries Association is pinning hopes on the orders bagged by BHEL in recent months to attain at least 70 per cent of the targetted 3.2 lakh tonnes for this fiscal.

There has been a perceptible rise in volumes in the final quarter of last fiscal and the first quarter now, S. Ashok Sundaresan, BHELSIA president, said.

The situation was indeed bad one year back when the units used to function for one month and remain idle for two months. But now, the capacity utilisation wagetting better, Mr. Ashok said.

Mannachanallur rice mills struggle to sustain operation due to drought

Quote:
Declining paddy arrivals due to the drought conditions has caused a perceptible downslide in milling activities in Mannachanallur town that is famous for its Ponni variety of rice.

Most of the about 40 mills in the town witnessed manufacturing activities for only three to four months in a year during 2015 and 2016. Even to ensure this, the mills, according to local sources, were constrained to purchase paddy from Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

The predicament of the member units of Mannachanallur Rice Mill Owners’ Association is not getting any better this year. Though the rice mills in the town have embraced modernisation over the last decade, the competition they face from the millers in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh is rather tough, members said.

Top quality paddy varieties produced in these States are procured by the mills there, and only the second quality is brought here for processing. The mills in the other States are also better placed in terms of operating efficiency.

With capacities to process 50 to 60 tonnes a day, the mills are able to produce and sell the rice at lower prices when compared to the millers in Mannachanallur where the capacities of the manufacturing units have capacities are much lower in the range of 10 to 15 tonnes.

The industry is also labour-intensive, particularly in conventional rice mills where cleaning, drying, grading and polishing activities are carried out manually. Manpower requirement is rather high since the overall operation in rice milling unit encompass cleaning to remove impurities; separation of small stones from paddy; parboiling to improve nutritional quality; husk removal; husk aspiration; paddy separation; whitening by removal of bran layer; polishing the exterior of milled kernel; length grading of broken and full rice; and finally packaging it.

Providing impetus to handloom weavers

Quote:
At a time when the demand for handloom textiles is on the decline, the Tamil Nadu handloom textiles department has launched a 15-day exhibition to provide impetus to the ailing industry.

State minister for tourism Vellamandi N Natarajan inaugurated the exhibition at GVK Mini Hall at Woraiyur on Saturday.

The handloom industry took a beating as weavers were unable to cope with the emerging trends in the garments industry. "The preference for handloom textiles is declining as people find items made in the power loom more attractive. The introduction of GST has also increased the price of handloom textiles," said PV Ramasamy, a weaver from Karur.

Thathaingarpettai on the outskirts of Trichy was once famous for its hand-woven dhotis. However, the introduction of power loom ruined the sector as weavers found it difficult to compete with the sheer volume produced by the machines.

"Former chief minister MGR was fond of dhotis from Thathaingarpettai. Now, there are around 75 weavers in our area who have continued with the business. Over 400 weavers have abandoned the business. The invasion of power loom caused a setback for us because they can produce items in large numbers, said Ravi from T Pettai.

A total of 25 stalls of various handloom textile weavers from Karur, Kancheepuram, Karur, Nagercoil, Salem and a few other areas have been set up at the exhibition. There is also a discount of 20 % on all the products.

The textiles department has set a sales target of Rs 25 lakhs for the exhibition.

However, not all is lost for the industry as it still has its customer base who feel comfortable in wearing handloom garments. "Our business is moving on because of a set of customers whose preference is handloom garments. They prefer it because of the quality. If we are able to bring it to the larger market, the industry can be revived," said S Saravanan, of Thuraiyur in Trichy.

Collector promises support for setting up trade centre

Seven-day special camp for sanction of loans by TIIC inaugurated

The district administration would extend all necessary support for establishing a trade centre in the city, said Collector K. Rajamani here on Monday.

Establishing a trade centre in the city for hosting conventions, trade fairs and other industrial events has been long pending demand.

The plea was reiterated by the secretary of the Tiruchi District Tiny and Small Scale Industries Association (TIDITSSIA), S. Punniyamoorthy, during the inaugural of the seven-day long special camp for sanction of loans by the Tamil Nadu Industrial Investment Corporation (TIIC) here on Monday.
Although the government has assured to extend 50% subsidy for establishing a trade centre in the city, the cost of private lands was prohibitively high, Mr. Punniyamoorthy said.

“We inspected a few private sites but the cost was high. Hence we have sought the allotment of a piece of government land at Panchapur for establishing the facility,” Mr. Punniyamoorthy said.

Responding to the plea, Mr. Rajamani, who inaugurated the camp, said the district administration would stand by TIDITSSIA in its efforts to establish the trade centre. He urged the association not to just stop with mooting the proposal, but also to follow it up with a proper plan of action. “You have a big role to play in promoting industrial development in the district,” he said.

He called for joint and coordinated efforts by the stakeholders and government agencies to foster industrial growth in the district. “We are a largely agrarian district. But in order to achieve the expected development on the industrial front, we have to constantly review and examine our plans and actions,” he said.

The Collector assured steps to ensure that the proposed industrial park of SIDCO at Manapparai turned a reality as 1,000 acres of land has already been acquired.

Echoing Mr.Punniyamoorthy’s suggestion, Mr. Rajamani called upon the TIIC to simplify procedures for sanction of credit and ensure transparency in its operations. “I understand you are planning to advance Rs. 1,800 crore of credit during the current year. Ensure expeditious clearance to help entrepreneurs,” he said.

K. Srinivasan, Deputy General Manager, TIIC, said the corporation was a model to most other state financial corporations in the country. “TIIC offers a range of schemes to meet the requirements of entrepreneurs. We are willing to fund viable projects,” he said. V. Mathiazhagan, Senior Regional Manager, TIIC, Tiruchi, said the Corporation, since its establishment in 1949, had extended financial support to thousands of industrial units in the state.

J. Daniel Chellappa, Senior Scientist, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), gave an overview of water purification technologies developed by BARC, and called upon entrepreneurs to come forward to manufacture low cost water purifiers using the membranes developed by it. Models of water purifiers using technology developed by BARC were displayed.

TIIC officials made a presentation of various schemes offered by TIIC and said its interest rates have been made cheaper than banks and financial institutions with the 3% interest subvention offered by the State government.
