Azerbaijan Oil Exploration Equipment Manufacturing Industry Revitalization Project
Although it is a core industry of Azerbaijan, the oil exploration equipment industry was losing competitiveness due to lack of international standard certification. UNICO implemented a model project to obtain international standard certification, quality assurance education and on-site training utilizing a JETRO support scheme. Supported by UNICO engineers and oil and machinery industry experts, the Oil Exploration Equipment Manufacturers Association of Azerbaijan obtained American Petroleum Industry and ISO9001-2001certifications.
Sakhalin Natural Gas Utilization Master Plan
Major companies have implemented large scale development projects on Sakhalin Island which is well endowed with natural resources such as coal, crude oil, and natural gas. After finishing a feasibility study for the development of natural gas, UNICO drew up a comprehensive master plan including the construction of a natural gas power generation plant, surplus coal export plan, and a C1 chemical industry development plan.
Demonstrative Research on Photovoltaic Power Generation System
UNICO implemented an international joint demonstrative development project for the practical technology development, dissemination and reliability improvement of a photovoltaic system together with a joint venture partner. In the Gansu Province of China, where plentiful solar and wind energy is available, the joint venture built a hybrid power system composed of solar panels, wind turbines, and advanced maintenance-free storage batteries to test the effectiveness of the batteries and efficiency and stability of power supply to a dispersed hybrid generation system.
