We are pleased to announce the III International Conference «HEAVY IRAN», March 1, 2018, «NOVOTEL TEHRAN IMAM KHOMEINI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT HOTEL», Tehran, Iran.
On March 09, 2017, the 2nd International Conference «HEAVY IRAN 2017» successfully took place. It was attended by more than 70 delegates from Iran, Iraq, Russia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, UAE, Germany, Belgium, Turkey, Poland and Switzerland. The Conference was attended by managers of the largest Iranian transport companies which have a huge experience of transporting extra heavy and oversize cargoes over the territory of Iran. The Conference was sponsored by Italian «Cometto».
As known, international isolation of Iran drastically restrained development of the entire economy of the country, including machine-building, shipping, chemical industry, resulting in high level of inflation and unemployment. However, in the nearest future, all sanctions against Iran may be lifted and around $150 billion will be released from blocked bank accounts. The country will face a real investment boom, and not only in the oil and gas sector. Unfrozen assets will be used to modernize the economy, as continuous blocking of investments has led to lack in technology. Just so, the average oil recovery factor in oilfields of Iran is one of the world’s lowest. Nevertheless, 67 petrochemical projects are currently under implementation in Iran, including construction of Persian Gulf Star Refinery with the capacity of 360 thousand barrels per day. It is expected that by 2020 Iran will take 41% of the petrochemical market of the entire Western Asia (Near and Middle East).
Need for modernization of industry will entail considerable volume of project cargoes. In the next few years, Iran may become a leader in consumption of services in the field of oversize and heavy loads transportation and installation among the Persian Gulf countries.
Among the Conference topics:
- Potential of Iranian transport infrastructure (ports, roads, bridges)
- Sharing practice of delivering project cargoes in the direction of Iran
- Particulars of state regulation of the transport sector
Iran is waiting for you!
