The production capacity of the Turkish Pektim Petrochemical Holding where SOCAR, Azerbaijanâ€™s state energy company has equity participation will increase from 3.2 million tons to 3.6 million tons in 2014.
An increase in production capacity will be possible thanks to the improved capacity of ethylene and purified terephthalic acid production enterprises.
In particular, the ethylene production enterprise's capacity will increase from current 520,000 tons to 587,000 tons by late 2014. The purified terephthalic acid production capacity will increase from 70,000 tons to 105,000 tons which will require investments worth $25 million.
Petkim also said that the first stage of construction of a wind power station will be completed in November 2014 in the petrochemical complex.
The technical evaluation process of the power station establishment project has already been completed. The implementation of the first phase is planned to be launched this year.
The total capacity of the power station will reach 50 MW and the output will be 25 MW in the first phase.
