Realize the transformation of resource advantages into economic advantages and drive regional economic development. During the 14th Five-Year Plan period, Inner Mongolia, a major coal-producing province, plans to build a number of large coal mines to further increase the concentration of coal production capacity. On February 16, the "14th Five-Year Plan for Coal Industry Development of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region" (hereinafter referred to as the "Plan") was released.

The Inner Mongolia Energy Bureau issued the "14th Five-Year Plan for the Development of Coal Industry in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region", pointing out that to stabilize coal production capacity in eastern Mongolia, a number of modern large-scale coal mines will be built in Ordos, with coal production capacity of 1.2 million tons per year and above accounting for 92%. The production capacity structure has been further optimized, the supply, storage and sales system has been improved, and the supply chain has become more smooth and efficient. The degree of underground mechanization has basically reached 100%, and the application of intelligent technology and equipment has been greatly promoted. All the qualified production coal mines in the region have been built into intelligent coal mines, and the labor efficiency of all coal mine employees has reached 7,500 tons per person per year. 100% of the production coal mines will be built into green mines. Strictly enforce the access standards for newly built, renovated and expanded coal mines. In principle, the production capacity of newly built underground coal mines shall not be less than 3 million tons/year, and the rebuilt and expanded coal mines will have a production capacity of not less than 1.2 million tons/year after renovation and expansion.

In addition, the "Plan" also pointed out the main achievements of Inner Mongolia since the 13th Five-Year Plan.

During the 13th Five-Year Plan period, Inner Mongolia produced a total of 4.85 billion tons of coal, nearly 60% of which were supplied to North China, Northeast China, East China and other regions, accounting for 1/3 of the country's inter-provincial transaction volume, making a positive contribution to national energy security. We will make every effort to ensure the coal supply in Northeast China and effectively respond to the challenges of the new crown epidemic on coal supply. Accelerate the pace of "return to railway", build Haoji, Zhunshuo and other foreign transportation channels, transform and upgrade coal transportation special lines such as Jitong, Huzhun, Dazhun, etc., and greatly improve the capacity of coal transportation outside the railway.

The supply-side structural reform of the coal industry continued to advance, with a total of 69 million tons of production capacity withdrawn, exceeding the tasks assigned by the state. High-quality production capacity was released in an orderly manner, with an additional high-quality production capacity of 160 million tons per year. The structure of coal production capacity has been continuously optimized. The average production capacity of single mines in the region has reached 2.59 million tons per year, an increase of 32 percentage points compared with 2015. The scale of large coal mines accounts for 89.3% of the total production capacity of coal mines in the region, an increase of 4.2 percentage points compared with 2015. and significantly improved efficiency.

Adhering to ecological priority and green development, the construction of national-level green mining development demonstration zones has been accelerated, and 127 coal mines in the region have been built as green mines. The construction of safety infrastructure has been accelerated, and 224 coal mines with first- and second-class safety production standards have reached the standard, accounting for 73% of the normal production coal mines in the area. During the 13th Five-Year Plan period, a total of 70 production safety accidents and 111 deaths occurred in coal mines in the region, which were 39 and 41 fewer people, or 35.8% and 27%, respectively, compared with the "12th Five-Year Plan" period.

The first batch of large mining trucks based on 5G technology to realize driving without blind spots has been put into operation, laying the foundation for subsequent smart mining, unmanned driving, and remote control. The first full-section tunnel boring machine construction long-distance coal mine inclined shaft was completed and put into use. The first complete set of domestically produced 8.8-meter full-height fully mechanized mining face equipment was successfully applied, setting a world record for mining height. A breakthrough has been made in the theory of cemented backfilling coal mining technology in the super-thick coal seam under the aquifer. New technologies such as lignite power generation flue gas water extraction and underground coal gasification were first demonstrated and applied, and the level of innovation-driven development was further improved.
