13 billion euro support for urban rail transportation: Science, Industry and Technology Minister Fikri Işık stated that they envisaged the purchase of 2023 sets of tram or metro type vehicles by 6 in line with the urban rail transportation targets. We calculate the total amount of investment to be made until 500 for urban rail transportation vehicles as approximately 2 billion euros. ”
Minister Işık evaluated the "Development of National Rail Vehicle Systems (MİLRT) Project".
the development as a native of the rail transport city traction and control systems, large distances to Turkey katettir would emphasize the light, in this context, last year's budget of Turkey Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) Marmara Research Center (MAM) met with internal resources, 1,7 million pounds He said that the work for the development of the National Rail Vehicle Systems Project originating from Turkey.
Completed in November 2016
Explaining that they are aiming to develop Traction Engine, Traction Control Unit, Train Control and Management System for use in urban tram and metro vehicles within the scope of the project, Işık said, “We aim to complete the National Rail Vehicle Systems Development Project in November 2016 with on-vehicle field tests. . Bursaray Duewag Metro Vehicle and traction system developed within the scope of the project Bozankaya We plan to implement it on the tram vehicle. ”
“Continuing the prototype production works of the draw frame system”
Light, the drawframe system prototype production studies continue, touching the laboratory test and 2016 in the middle of the year of vehicle applications and field tests are also aimed to realize.
Stating that it is foreseen to purchase 2023 sets of tram or metro type vehicles by 6 in line with the urban rail public transportation targets, Işık said, “If the cost of a vehicle is taken as approximately 500 million euro, the total amount of investment to be made by the city until 2 We calculate it as 2023 billion euro ”.
Light, the cost of the vehicles in question, looking at the ratio of the traction system and train control systems in the vehicle approximately 50 rate, he said.
