A special commission established by Azerkimya state company, has failed to clarify the exact amount of the damage made as a result of fire in one of the rigs of EP-300 plant on 23 November. вЂњWe expect to have the estimation of the damage shortly, a source at Azerkimya told Trend.
According to an official of Azerkimya, at present the commission continues work in this direction. A break of a rotating shaft in one of the compressors in the plant is expected to cause fire. вЂњThis is a clearly mechanic reason. The obliterated teeth at gear led to break of the rig,вЂќ the same source said. The rig itself was purchased fro Europe. The fire broke out as a result of a spill of around 500 liters of industrial oil.
At present the enterprise is in talks with the Russian enterprises on purchase of necessary spare parts. вЂњWe hope in the successful of the issue within subsequent 10 days,вЂќ a source at the company concluded.
