Machine-building complex includes close-related fields of machine-building, such as power-engineering, electrical engineering, radioelectrnics, instrument building, device-building, transport, agriculture, etc. For the value of products manufactured and the number of employees, machine-building is in the first place among the industrial fields.
Until the recent years, Azerbaijan was specialized in the oil machine-building. The country manufactures ¼ of the total product produced in this field. One of the largest enterprises in the oil machine-building is “Bashneftkimmash Association”. This enterprise exports its products to 40 countries.
The stationary platforms produced in Baku Deep Water Jacket Plant in Sahil settlement allow for drilling 200-300 m deep wells in the Caspian. Other large enterprises of oil machine-building industry in Azerbaijan – include Machine-building plant named after Sattarkhan, Keshla Machine-building plant, Bynegedi clay and stell plant.
After Baku Steel Plant has been constructed, Azerbaijan doesn’t purchase steel from abroad.
Besides oil machine-building, electrical engineering, device-building, radioelectronics, and other new fields has recently developed in Azerbaijan.
Electronics requires highly qualified personnel and raw material. The largest enterprises of power engineering are the following: plants that produce oil-conditioning, refrigerators, accumulators, lamps, transformers in Baku, “Star” television plant in Shamakhi, cable plant in Mingechevir, water-heater plant in Salyan.
