The system helps petrochemical industrialists to access technical information about the activities having been carried out in other petrochemical plants so that operations will be carried out more efficiently without needing to test what has already been tried by others.
Managing Director of National Petrochemical Company (NPC) Marziyeh Shahdaei said the company has envisioned spread of the system across all the 52 petrochemical facilities operating in Iran in order to save lessons learned in the industry.
Addressing a ceremony to unveil a statue of knowledge management at NPC on Tuesday, the official expressed hope that the system will be institutionalized in all the petrochemical plants across the country.
She said the system’s pilot has been carried out in Bandar Imam, Bou Ali, Razi, Jam petrochemical plants as well as the Petrochemical Research and Technology Company.
“The system will need the cooperation of petrochemical industrialists to share their experiences and lessons in the field so that it will become rich in information for those in need of it,” she said.
Marziyeh Shahdaei, who is also deputy petroleum minister in petrochemical affairs, further said the system is crucial now that the world is developing rapidly.
