Baku, Azerbaijan, Sept. 9


Over 90 percent of the construction of Azerbaijan’s Pirshagi Wastewater Treatment Plant funded by the Azerbaijani government and the Export-Import Bank of Korea has been completed, Trend reports referring to Azerbaijan Caspian Shipping Company (ASCO).

The facility is the first modern wastewater treatment plant in Azerbaijan, developed on the basis of new technologies. ASCO’s specialized vessels dredged the installation construction route. Dredging was carried out with the help of the “Engineer B. Mammadov” digging vessel and the “Baku-3”, “Baku-5” and “Baku-6” transport ships. The “Absheron-5” towing vessel and the “Orion 12” diving vessel were also involved in the work.

The volume of dredging in the Pirshagi drilling zone amounted to 216,650 cubic meters.

A guide pile was installed in the drilling zone with the help of the "Zulfu Hajiyev" crane ship, as well as 1,630-meter-long pipes transported from the municipality of Hovsan to the territory of Pirshagi by the company ships.

The complex will prevent the discharge of ​​wastewater generated in the vast territory in the northeast of the Absheron Peninsula into the Caspian Sea. The wastewater from the villages of Kurdakhani, Pirshagi, Mashtagha, Bilgah, Nardaran, Mahammadi, Digah, Mehdiabad, Goradil, Fatmayi and Novkhani will be treated here. The project is of particular importance in terms of ensuring the environmental safety of the Caspian Sea.
