Material had already been delivered November 2013 for the extension of the local mass transit train line in Bursa out eastwards, and in December 2014 a contract was signed for the provision of overhead catenary system components for the city of Konya.

New line and extensions in the cities of Izmir and Izmit.
Powerlines Products provides the complete range of components for the local mass transit train line extension and a depot expansion in Izmir, the third-largest city in Turkey. The municipal mass transit line is to be extended by 23 km. The system to be erected is a flat chain catenary with 1400 GRP cantilevers. The scope of delivery encompasses the entire range of components required for a catenary system. As well as the overhead catenary and cantilevers, the system also requires clamps, switches, motorised switch controls and retensioning devices. The scope of the CCE Elektrik order also includes delivery of the products for a new line in Izmit, an important and ambitious industrial area to the east of Istanbul. Powerlines Products is to supply the full range of materials required for a high chain catenary system along the new 13 km line. The contract includes the overhead catenary, 500 GRP cantilevers, clamps, switches, motorised switch controls and retensioning devices. Additionally, components for a depot expansion, carried out with a single overhead line, will be delivered to the Turkish city.

Gerhard Ehringer, Powerlines Group CEO: “I’m particularly pleased that after the success of our initial Turkish orders we have now received another contract in Turkey. In fact, Turkey is an important target market in the product sector. I see this contract as an important milestone. It is the largest order for products and components in the as yet short history of Powerlines Products GmbH.”
