In the Name of God
Fajr Petrochemical Company (the beating heart of the petrochemical special economic zone)
Fajr Petrochemical Company was established in site 4 with
the aim of utility supply for the petrochemical companies situated
in PET.Zone in 1998. Also, this company
is considered as the first utility company in Iran which launched in 2002. Subsequently,
Fajr Petrochemical Company started to work on Fajr development plan in site 2
by improving companies and increasing NPC plans in site 2&3.
Persian Gulf Industries
Co. (70 %) and Edalat Fund (30%) are the main shareholders of Fajr Petrochemical Company.

The Iranian petrochemical industry is an effective drive
in national development and economy promising economic and social advancement
in Iran with the definition of the 20-year vision. Stable production in
industry requires fundamental preparations to guarantee and maintain
production. The most distinctive factor in this respect is energy. Energy is
among the most elemental requirements of the petrochemical industries of the
special economic zone with the aid of which millions of tons of products are
annually produced and offered to global markets.
Fajr Petrochemical Company was established in 1998 to
provide the utility required by the companies of the special economic zone in
Imam Khomeini Port. It began to operate in 2002 as the first centralized
utility company in Iran. The development plan of Fajr Petrochemical Company was
implemented in Site 2 with the increased number of plans in Sites 2 and 3 and
the rising need for utility.
In line with enacting the policies of Article 44 of the
constitution, the ownership of this company was transferred to Persian Gulf
Petrochemical Industries Co. (PGPIC) in 2009. In light of the brilliant
performance of the company in various strategic fields, a fraction of the
company stocks was offered to the national stock market in 2015 after being
accepted thereto. Thus, Fajr Petrochemical Company joined the Iranian capital
The process units of the company comprise electric power
and steam generation, dispatching, water treatment, air separation, industrial
wastewater treatment, and offsite utilities.
Electric power is the most crucial product of Fajr
Petrochemical Company. A total of 1147 megawatts of electric power is generated
using 11 gas turbines.
The most important feature of the power plant is that it
is environment-friendly; nitrogen and carbon oxides in gases resulting from
combustion, which exit the power plant stacks, are below the standard allowable
Steam is produced at a rate of 1690 tons per hour. The
major part of steam is produced using the huge thermal energy existing in the
hot gases yielded by the combustion of gas turbines. As a result, the thermal
efficiency of the boilers reaches 92%.
Air separation unit
Air separation unit has been built to compress and
separate air for two different applications in industry. Compressed air is
produced to be used in instrumentation equipment, controls, and generic
industrial applications. Air separation aims to supply oxygen, nitrogen, and
argon to be used in the process productions of customers. The capacity of the
compression sector is 33500 normal cubic meters per hour of instrumentation air
and 66000 normal cubic meters per hour of service air.
The capacity of the separation sector is 40500 normal
cubic meters per hour of gaseous oxygen and 51000 normal cubic meters per hour
of gaseous nitrogen.
In the air separation sector of this unit, air
temperature is reduced to -194 degrees centigrade. Oxygen and nitrogen are produced
via distillation, compressed via a compressor, and stored in tanks as liquids.
Water treatment unit
The use of water is common in all industries. Without
this vital substance, industrial activities will be impossible to perform. On
the other hand, the type and quantity of water consumption differs considering
the production process and technology level in each industrial unit.
Various types of industrial water are produced in the
treatment unit of Fajr Petrochemical Company given their application and they
are consumed by the neighboring companies. The products of this unit are as
follows: dematerialized water (3735 cubic meters per hour), reverse osmosis
water (9750 cubic meters per hour), fire extinguishing water (14000 cubic
meters per hour), service water, and healthy water.
These units are fed by the water of Karoun River at a
rate of 15000 cubic meters per hour.
The particular advantage of this unit is the very low
loss of water in the production cycle and the recycling of the reverse osmosis
system wastewater thanks to a new design in R.O. Reject sector.
Wastewater treatment units
These units convert toxic, polluted wastewater to clean,
life-endowing water for thirsty plants and vegetation.
Fajr Petrochemical Company has built two treatment plants
to treat industrial and sanitary wastewater of the complexes of the zone.
The wastewater treatment plants were designed and
constructed to treat low TDS and sanitary water and high TDS wastewater at a
rate of respectively 980 and 95 cubic meters per hour.
The received low TDS industrial wastewater is utilized in
the green space of the special economic zone and the thinning of the high TDS
part after physical, chemical, and biological treatment, purification, and
Owing to the great pollution of incoming wastewater in
the treatment unit of Area 2, wastewater treatment is conducted at two stages.
This unit is in charge of distributing and controlling
the secondary services (utility) produced in Fajr Petrochemical Company to all
operating complexes of the special zone. In addition, the complexes of the zone
receive or transmit their required feed and products using the pipelines
supervised by this unit.
The operational jurisdiction of this unit is the entire
special economic zone.
This unit is also in charge of maintaining the pipelines
and the related equipment including the valves, instrumentation systems, and
electric heating systems.
The efforts made by the expert, committed, and
indefatigable workforce have invariably maintained the dynamicity and vigor of
the energy production cycle beyond the role of technology. Expert teams in Fajr
Petrochemical Company, working in units with areas of operation that are
greatly different from one another, have turned this complex to the beating
heart of the Imam Khomeini Port Petrochemical Special Economic Zone.
The vision of Fajr Petrochemical Company with regard to
human capital has been defined as follows in Persian Gulf Holding: enjoying
staff with high productivity and distinct capabilities (adept, precise,
healthy, sympathetic, flexible).
The valuable gift these industry experts offer to the
Iranian petrochemical industry is petrochemical industry wastewater treatment,
industrial water treatment and production, consumptive gas production and, most
importantly, electric power generation. Up-to-date, efficient knowledge and
working around the clock has led to a constant flow of energy through the veins
of other process complexes of the zone.
Vision and future
To complete production capacity, the vision of Fajr
Petrochemical Company has been defined as follows: presence in the energy
markets of the neighboring countries.
The determination of this vision as the guiding light of
the complex indicates the strong will and commendable self-confidence of Fajr
Petrochemical Company’s managers and employees along with Iran’s special status
in petrochemical industries.
Progress and success entail foresight and attention to
the concept of sustainability in social, economic, and environmental aspects.
In Fajr Petrochemical Company, we strive to deepen this outlook.
