Iran’s Assaluyeh Dock No. 17, first homegrown cryogenic loading arm operational

SHANA (Tehran) – Dock No. 17 of Phase 2 of Assaluyeh Port in Iran’s southern province of Bushehr and the first domestically-built cryogenic loading arm were put into operation in the presence of the National Petrochemical Company (NPC) managing director.

Speaking during a ceremony, NPC CEO Morteza Shahmirzaei said, “I proudly announce that the first cryogenic loading arm, which was before manufactured by a few Western countries, has been made, installed, and put into operation by Iranian engineers and experts.”

Iran’s petrochemical industry is about to stand at the summit and become self-sufficient in acquiring technical know-how and making necessary equipment and products, added the deputy oil minister, continuing it is a matter of pride that the first ammonia cargo was loaded at Dock No. 17.

Given NPC’s strategy on credit supply of petrochemical products aimed at supporting downstream industries and manufacturers, domestic supply will rise by around 1.3 million tons, he pointed out.

More than 100 petrochemical projects are underway, said Shahmirzaei, adding they will come on stream one after another.

The NPC chief observed the operations of installing homegrown heat exchangers and process equipment of Dena petrochemical and Jam cold box projects during his one-day visit to Assaluyeh.
