The CHLOR-ALKALI Project is counted as one of the most specific Iranian mining projects, which after 3 years from its launching idea beside the biggest world brine mining and also in order to supplying the requirement energy for high above mentioned project, now the related contract is being established between parties.
Since the first days of this project, the biggest challenge related to this enormous project, was the supplying the power for this generating unit – which is one of the vital industries in IRAN. Eventually, the efforts of authorities fructified in January 22, 2018 through signing a contract and in so doing, the first steps were taken to complete this huge national project which is the biggest CHLOR-ALKALI Project in whole of the world. In fact, this contract, in January 2018 and in order to supply 10 MW required project’s energy, was signed between KIANTAJHIZ CO. and SHAYA Professional consultant Co.
Following this issue, SHAYA Professional consultant Co. has established another contract with other well-known Turkish company – ASTOR Transformer Co. – in order to supplying the transformers which are required for electrify to this generating unit.
In the case of performing this contract, the problem of supplying electricity power for enormous CHLOR-ALKALI Project will be solved until 20 weeks later.
Hence, ALI ROSTAMI – the manager of KIANTAJHIZ CO. which is the only exclusive agent of ASTOR Transformer Co. in IRAN – performed a conversation about this project with our reporter, in which he explain about the troubles caused by attending in the Iranian market.
At the first of the conversation, Mr. ROSTAMI stated that: “In order to supply the electricity for the CHLOR-ALKALI project under the contract which we previously had, it was supposed to the requirement generator of the project are provided, which has been started and are in the process of design and production.”
He by refer to this fact that, for supplying entire electricity of project, after install generators we need to transformers, mentioned that: “considering this fact, the required transformers for this projects will be procured by KIANTAJHIZ CO. through a contract which has been signed recently. As well as, it has been supposed to these transformers will be designed, tested, and carried in 20 weeks by our colleagues.”
Mr. ROSTAMI said that: “the technology of these transformers is belong to TURKEY and we as KIANTAJHIZ CO. – which is the only exclusive agent of ASTOR Transformer Co. in IRAN – are the fourth company in the world which are able to produce transformers up to 850 kV and 1000 MVA.”
Following the question of our reporter about working conditions in Iran and how it works, Mr. ROSTAMI answered: “unfortunately, as far as we know, all projects are being suspended one by one, or the budget for construction and industrial projects is not given to the activists. However, in the last few months the situation has been better compare to pervious and we hope to hearing good news at future. Despite this, we will try to do our best to supply the necessary power for the projects of the country as much as possible.
Mr. ROSTAMI, referring to KIANTAJHIZ’s background of presence at Iranian market, stated: "our company has been established in IRAN for 15 years and it can be said that we have been involved in the supply of goods since then. On the other hand, we repeatedly tried to enter in the field of production in IRAN, which has not been achieved for many reasons.
Mr. ROSTAMI complained about the existence of bureaucracy and numerous obstacles to production and trade in Iran and said: “sometimes I regret that, I wish we would had invested our stocks in construction, or we would had devoted our monies to buying and selling coins, currency, and cars, to name but three. Because such activities are more profitable; however, our patriotism does not allow us to do this.”
Following the question of our reporter about new international conditions which occurred for Iran and the concerns about them, Mr. ROSTAMI answered: “in fact, the dilemmas have increased and in this situation it is very difficult to be optimist.
In another part of the conversation, the manager of KIANTAJHIZ CO. emphasized about KHOUR & BIABANAK CHLOR-ALKALI Project that, if this project had electricity, it would be the largest chlorine project in all of the world. In the following Mr. ROSTAMI stated that: "we have no problem with the supply of generators and transformers – which are very special – and we hope that the financial problems of this project will be solved, inasmuch as it can have significant profits for the our country.
Mr. ROSTAMI mentioned that, by performing this project we can protect and help to regional power grid; that is, when we do not need to electrical power for the CHLOR-ALKALI Project, the generated power will be injected to the grid. By doing so, the regional power grid will enjoy from extra producing power. In the following he said that: “I as the one person who spent 15 years in Iran's oil and gas industry during the most severe sanctions, have been encountered to quite a few torturous conditions. Nonetheless, in all of these hard times we have applied all of our might until doing our best for projects and we, as a private sector, have tried to exhibit the best service to the customers. Therefore, considering the mentioned background, I emphasize that this industry is a new and innovative industry; thus, I hope that Iranian banks will provide an appropriate support for this project, in that this will give us the opportunity to play an effective role in this project.”
