What do you think?
Good question!
Indeed, the fire theme of the tower is explicitly expressed with its shapes, but the crane on the top and the cladding are not consistent with an initial idea.
Moreover, the fire theme of the SOCAR tower contrasts with the water symbol of Azersu tower (located next to the SOCAR). Interestingly, symbols of water and fire are situated next to each other.

With regards to the cleaning systems, they had other options but took the cheapest one.

Obviously the draw back to saving money is visual impact!

Heerim Architects & Planners Co. Ltd. has prepared a design for a new skyscraper administrative office for the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan. The building is slated to be 200 meters high, around 100 000 sq. m and to accommodate more than 2,000 employees. The building will have 2 underground and 40 overground floors. Construction works are expected to start in the mid 2010.

It's too bad that they didn't clad this tower, or at least the top of it, in red. Having the water tower in blue makes sense, having the fire tower in blue doesn't. Otherwise, it's a great building.
