Largest Petchem Plant in Western Iran to be Launched Soon

TEHRAN (Shana) -- The CEO of Ilam Petrochemical Company said the 13th olefin unit, touted as the largest petrochemical project in western Iran, is about to come online after 19 years.

According to Ilam Petrochemical Plant, Hassan Najafi-Semnani told a press conference on Tuesday that the plant was planned to come online in August but its commissioning was delayed as one of the unit’s compressors ran into problems.

He said the unit was set up without any foreign assistance and with the capable hands of the technical and local forces of the province and the country, adding: “91% of the forces of this company are from locals and more than 1400 people are working directly and under contract.”

The CEO of Ilam Petrochemical Company further pointed to receiving the Green Industry Award for the second consecutive year in the field of environmental issues.
