Rector of Karabuk University (KBU) Dr. Burhanettin Uysal, academicians who participated in national and international academic activities for three days, especially TCDD, TULOMSAŞ, TUVASAŞ, TUDEMSAŞ, İstanbul Transportation, Kayseri Transportation, Estram, Durmazlar A.Ş., KARDEMİR A.Ş., organizations such as public and private sector, Railway Transport Association and Rayder evaluated the 1.International Railway Systems Engineering Workshop and its results with the participation of Eskişehir and Anatolian Rail Systems Clusters. Rector Uysal stated that for the first time, all interested parties have come together focused on the same goal and that the planned projects have been shared with the public for the first time with this workshop. the panel is organized in our country is increasing investment in the Rail Systems in domestic production and increasing the rate of growth Rail voiced the necessity of having a say in the market of industrial production in Turkey, he said.
Rector Uysal, ası In the opening remarks of TCDD General Manager Süleyman Karaman Bey, the explanations of the existing Rail System investments in Turkey and the targets of the TCDD in the future have been important in terms of motivating all sector representatives and revealing our state's determination in this area. Mr. Karaman also emphasized that the breakthroughs in the field of Rail Systems cannot be realized without the size of the training. He also said that they appreciated the work of our university and started to train engineers and intermediate staff in this field and they supported these works. Also Rail Systems of an important issue in Turkey-based test platform and also the necessity of the laboratory Mr. emphasizing Karaman, TCDD of Turkey and its immediate surroundings will be established at Karabük University single rail wear and 5 kilometers to do the mechanical test 'Ray Test Road' platform of six months the statement that they planned to be finished in the delights, "he said.
Turkey's only domestic rail producer, Kardemir Inc. General Manager Fadil Demirel Bey also gave place to the description Rector Uysal, Kardemir A.Ş., they started new projects and hardened recently mushroom rails also produce they and In addition, Demirel stated that other production projects, especially wheels and wagons, are in the process of being completed, and that the railroad test platform where the rails produced at KARDEMİR A.Ş. will be tested is considered as a necessary, appropriate and strategic investment in this respect. In addition to this rail test platform of Karabuk University, it is planning to build a second test platform of approximately 20 kilometers, Rail Systems vehicle dynamic, mechanical and stability test platform and it is possible to test high speed train vehicles in this second test platform. He indicated. Anadolu and Eskişehir Rail Systems Cluster and other private enterprise companies Durmazlar Inc., Bozankaya Inc. and ABB participants from Turkey and the participation of Railway Transporters Association representative Rail tame, indicating that the system in Localization panel indigenization topic of discussion in detail, "our State Rail System in our country at least so 51 domestic production of preferred investment Rail Systems is understood that accelerates the production investment, if well-evaluated next 20- in the 30 year vision Rail investments in Turkey, production, testing and employment through market size 800 billion dollars, will make a major contribution to reducing unemployment by creating a million 500 thousand additional jobs. At Karabuk University, we have developed the technology of rail systems; world parallel more efficiently to developments in general, faster, more economical and have opened Turkey's first Rail Systems Engineering at Karabük University Engineering Faculty of the year 2011 the Department ensure sustainable in order to meet the needs of technical personnel trained in this field. In the 2011-2012 academic year, we included 97 and 2012-2013 in the academic year. Based on the results of this workshop, we see that; Our university has made a right decision in the future by considering the future of rail systems which has a very important place today and in the future. The fact that such a wide participation was provided to this workshop, which was organized by Karabük University for the first time, has once again demonstrated its place and importance in the rapidly developing world and in our country. This shows us that as a university, we will produce added value on behalf of our country by undertaking important tasks in the field of Rail Systems which has a very important place in the future of our country.
During the workshop, as Karabük University, cooperation protocols were signed with most companies on the internship, application and employment of our students. The workshop, which was held with the participation and interest of the public and private sectors, contributed to the strategic goals of our country as a strategic working platform. It has come to the fore among the other topics discussed and scientific studies presented. In this context, as the first engineers of our country in this field, the Rail Systems engineers, which Karabük University started to train, will contribute greatly to meeting the need for engineers in the field of Rail Systems and encouraging companies that want to make a production breakthrough. The workshop was very productive in terms of its results. it will bring kazanI wish my work to be beneficial to Karabük University, Karabük and our country, and thank the public and private sector organizations and representatives, academics, who contributed to the workshop. I invite the whole industry to the 2013nd International Rail Systems Engineering Workshop that we will organize in 2”.
