We would like to inform you more about BursaRay Rotterdam vehicles:
BursaRay vehicle / wagon requirement:
Two vehicle purchase auctions were made for BursaRay previously. The first one was the scope of BursaRay construction, Siemens was 2 B48 type high-base vehicles and the second one was purchased from Bombardier. 80 high-tech Bombardier vehicles, each purchased at a price of 3.16 million Euros, are also used on Bursaray lines.
Therefore, a total of 78 vehicles operate under the management of Burulaş, with series intervals exceeding 10 minutes in BursaRay lines.
Currently, the number of vehicles needed is at least 24 and the need needs to be met immediately. With the opening of the Kestel stage, this need will increase even more! Knowing this necessity, the work of Mr. Levent Fidansoy, the general manager of Burulaş, had already begun for a long time. There were two solutions to purchase a vehicle with a new tender or to maintain and use used vehicles in good condition.
1) If there was a new car purchase tender:
In the event of a tender for the vehicles that will be needed at the first stage, the required budget would be 24 x 3 million EURO = 72 million EURO with the most optimistic calculation. The delivery time will be at least two years!
2) Used vehicle solution in good condition:
If we calculate the cost: 24 x 125.000 EUR = 3 million EUR (only one new vehicle price) What about spare parts and other replacement costs 2 x 3 EUR = 24 million EUR. So in total 125.000 3 pieces modernized vehicle to the new vehicle price! Spare parts included! (Calculate a summary
6 Million EURO / 44 = 136.000 EUR All-inclusive cost per vehicle!
Bursa Metropolitan Municipality, which made this calculation, bought 44 high-based vehicles produced at the Düwag factory in the coastal city of the Netherlands, which is in a very good condition with the superior efforts of Levent Fidansoy. These vehicles are in good condition and suitable for BursaRay system.
According to the agreement made between Bursa Metropolitan Municipality / Burulaş AŞ and Rotterdam Train Company RET, the purchased Düwag SG2 wagons were Germany'about Rheinbach is being taken to the city. Here, electrical and electronic components are renewed according to 1500 V DC. In addition, the outer hitch is renewed and most likely painted in Bursa green. Although we do not have any information about air conditioning and on-board communication systems replacement, we do not see them as a big promlem.
Domestic vehicle production:
We support companies that produce domestic vehicles. He sees such solutions as a temporary solution for urgent needs. Very soon we wish to see the tram and car on the same tracks.
2 of Rotterdam vehicles, which we expect to be officially announced soon, are in Bursa! On the two trains coming to the Bursaray Main Control Center, there is a 750rd rail system with 3 V DC pantography and side energy. Even dynamic gabaret tests of BursaRay line of the vehicles, which continue the tests in the warehouse area, were carried out.
Siemens B80 …… .27,70 m
Bombardier N 28,14 m
Düwag SG2 UM 29,80 m
The vehicles that do not cause problems in length, width and height are quite spacious, their doors are wide and aesthetic. In addition to this beautiful feature that we think is ease of entry and exit during the intensive use and ease for disabled roads, the operating speed of the vehicles is also very satisfactory.
