Abdolrahim Ghanbarian, the CEO of Jam
Petrochemical Company, expressed gratitude for the unwavering support of the
board of directors and the relentless efforts of the dedicated staff during the
major overhaul of 1402.
"Following nearly a month of round-the-clock
work by committed and specialized staff, we have successfully achieved all
predefined objectives of the planned overhaul. The operational units of Jam
Petrochemical Company are now in production mode, and the redesign has
permanently resolved the flare stack problem during startup," Ghanbarian
reported, as per NIPNA.
He added, "The results of this major
overhaul have led to increased production, reduced capital loss, and amplified
profits for all stakeholders, especially retirees."
Highlighting the safety and efficiency in
executing the project, Ghanbarian continued, "One key aspect of the 1402
major overhaul is that such operations usually take over 60 days in regular
circumstances, but with the preparations made, excellent management, and the
efforts of approximately 5,000 operational, supervisory, support, and
coordination staff, this operation concluded within about 40 days with minimal
Ghanbarian emphasized, "The primary activity
undertaken involved the replacement of the upper portion and the hot core of
the cold box, as well as addressing issues with seawater exchangers. A
significant number of equipment and lines, totaling 1205 inspection points,
underwent replacement or repair based on risk-based inspection standards and
Speaking about the positive outcomes, he noted,
"Previously, due to inefficiency and internal leaks in the cold box, a
significant amount of valuable ethylene and propylene products were lost. By
trusting an Iranian manufacturer and employing domestic engineering, the first
Iranian cold box, with most of its components also being Iranian-made, was
designed and manufactured through collaboration and supervision by the
specialists and engineers of the complex."
Furthermore, Ghanbarian stated, "The
previous leaks in the cold box streams have now been rectified, and its
performance is notably efficient. With the installation of the new cold box,
prevention of substantial product loss has been ensured, leading to a significant
increase in the profit margin."
He detailed, "With the relentless efforts of
native specialists, units such as Olefin, HD, PE, BD, and B1 are now in
operation. Bringing the production units of Jam Petrochemical Company back into
service after major overhauls is a testament to the responsible endeavors of
each hardworking individual who, in the most challenging phase of major
overhauls, always believed in the phrase 'We can.'"
Ghanbarian concluded by acknowledging the
guidance of the company's management, deputy directors, and all other
colleagues, attributing the success to the synergy and guidance provided,
transforming the workforce into an invaluable asset for the complex.
