Azerikimya reconstructs railway network
Azerbaijan, Baku, July 30 /Trend/
The State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) is paying special attention to improving the Azerikimya Production Unit's transport infrastructure. The production unit's automobile fleet has been centralized, expanded and equipped with new vehicles and mechanisms.
Azerikimya has started to overhaul and rebuilt its railways to improve chemical exports. As of today, a 7.3-kilometer section has already been rebuilt. Some rails were replaced.
Chemical enterprises utilize railway branches in Azerbaijan that combine to form a large transportation network. However, the country does not currently need a factory railway depot, as production has been suspended on several fields.
Specialists at Azerikimya determined earlier that the production unit's railways must be reconstructed and nearly doubled in length to guarantee cargo coordination and efficiency.
Large-scale repairs are continuing under a project to create contemporary production fields, while applying advanced technologies and ensuring premium quality and the rational use of labor.
The first round of work to overhaul and reconstruct the production unit's railway junction will end by late August. This will allow chemical output to be more safely and more efficiently transported to the Sumgayit Station and exported to farther destinations.
