It is the role of Lawler Consulting to design the site mechanical and electrical infrastructure for 3 industrial areas totalling 8km2 within the FEZ. The services include medium voltage and low voltage power distribution, telecommunications infrastructure, roadway lighting, gas and oil infrastructure and irrigation. The design considers the various land use types including storage areas, value added logistics, basic manufacturing, and oil and gas. Land use and consumption parameters vary significantly across the various activity types and each service is sized to match the predicted demand of each individual plot of land.
Existing site infrastructure such as above ground and below ground gas pipelines, overhead high and medium voltage power cables, and underground oil reservoirs are present in the areas designated to the FEZ. Part of the challenge is to integrate all existing mechanical and electrical services into the new development while minimising down time for neighbouring regions such as the Port of Baku and regional residential developments.
