SOCAR lets contract for Baku refinery

State Oil Co. of Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) has let a contract to Hamon Thermal Europe SA of France for the delivery of a water-cooling unit at its Heydar Aliyev (formerly New Baku) refinery at Baku, Azerbaijan.

The cooling unit, which will have a capacity of 7,000 cu m/day, will replace the refinery’s existing equipment, which failed to fully meet the demands of the plant during the warmer months of the year, SOCAR said.

Site preparation for the project’s construction currently is under way, SOCAR said.

SOCAR recently completed maintenance work on the atmospheric and vacuum distillation units at the Heydar Aliyev refinery, but the company has yet to confirm completion of ongoing, major repair work at the plant’s catalytic cracking unit (OGJ Online, May 30, 2014).
