Scroll down for more

We have beaten the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure that our work on the Azerikimya modernization project in Azerbaijan has been completed on time. 

The overhaul of the SOCAR’s petrochemical complex near the nation’s capital, Baku, is now complete and the plant has been handed over and is fully in operation. It has been producing ethylene and propylene on demand since October 2020. 

Testing has shown that all the technological modifications introduced as part of the project execution are functioning properly. The contractual performance test was successfully completed in February and the plant met the ethylene and propylene production capacity and quality specification. 

Stefano La Femina, Project Director, said: “This is another result that demonstrates the reliability of our design in this technology. 

“Technip Energies’ high quality standards, followed in all phases of the project from engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning to start-up, allowed us to achieve the performance targets without any problem.” 

This is another result that demonstrates the reliability of our design in this technology.
