On October 13, 2016 President Ilham Aliyev visited the Baku Steel Company LLC. Chairman of the Supervisory Board Rasim Mammadov informed the President about the work done here. President Ilham Aliyev was informed about the three new projects being implemented here. The modernized automated installation of ferroalloys and furnaces for new projects includes the installation of an uninterrupted piston casting machine at 9 meters in diameter, three mile, a casting speed of 5 meters per minute, as well as the creation of a range of 550,000 tones of annual productivity. This line is equipped with an automatic welding device for each component to reduce losses in production. This line is also intended for hot rolling of the casting machine, which in turn will save energy. Baku Steel Company realizes these projects with Danieli, Italy.

President Ilham Aliyev attended the opening ceremony of the Oxygen plant. The plant is supplied with the equipment of Air Liquid, the most advanced company in this field.
