Over nearly 20 years we've provided a range of technical advisory services to the Azerbaijan government, private-sector, and development partners to help strengthen institutional capabilities in the transport, industry, energy, water, and power sectors.
Mott MacDonald has supported Azerbaijan's government in providing local communities with better infrastructure through sustainable resource management and local governance. We're providing professional services with leading engineering and management experience in technical and economic studies, detailed design, construction supervision, projects preparation, procurement, monitoring, and reporting. One of our key projects is the 53-mile (86-kilometer) Baku Metro extension, which is adding three lines and 60 underground stations. We are the detail designer and construction supervisor.
Water and environment
Our experts have contributed to many local water and environmental projects. Our key services in these areas include institutional building, engineering design, procurement, construction supervision, and environment monitoring for the rehabilitation and completion of water infrastructure. We've played a role in helping clients develop an integrated approach to water resource and water quality management.
Our other consulting services have assisted public and private organizations in developing and managing oil and gas, power, health, governance, and business development projects.
For instance, we provided gas distribution utility technical advisory services to Deloitte & Touche and its clients (World Bank, government of Azerbaijan) on a project to privatize the Baku Gas Distribution Company in Azerbaijan. After an initial report, our role involved technical assistance on unbundling issues, such as final asset boundaries and valuation, organizational structure, tariff formulation, and human resources.
We also provided facade, building services, and fire engineering for the National Arena in Baku: a 9,000-seat gymnastics venue. The facade marries the requirements for high environmental performance and structural expression. Internally, fresh air, heating, and cooling requirements are met using low-velocity vents within the seating system rather than high velocity jets on the ceiling. This provides comfort where it’s needed and minimizes the fan energy required for air circulation.
