Domestic engine to Van Lake ferry

Domestic engine to Van Lake ferry: The domestic ship engine produced in Eskişehir was fitted to the Van Lake ferry built in the Tatvan district of Bitlis.

Locomotive and Engine Industry Corporation of Turkey (from TÜLOMSAŞ) produced "domestic marine diesel engines," Van Lake downloaded was mounted on the largest ferry in the country.

Yavuz Gürbüz, workshop engineer at TÜLOMSAŞ, told Anadolu Agency (AA) that the engine they have been using in locomotives since 1974 is suitable for the sea, and they are entering the marine engine industry. kazanhe told me what he was going through.

Noting that the development of this engine in the maritime industry continues, Gürbüz said, “Four of our 500 kilowatt engines were fitted to the new ferry. 4 percent of these engines are domestic production. We continue to work on its development. This to the Turkish maritime industry kazanwe are trying to climb. We continue to work in terms of economy and fuel economy," he said.

Stating that the existing ferries reach 4,5 hours from Tatvan to Van, Gürbüz emphasized that the new ferries will travel Van Lake in 2,5 to 3 hours with these engines.

Gurbuz, local production in the framework of the 2023 targets to achieve much higher levels of new locomotives, wagons and maritime road works are being voiced.

  • “We care about domestic engine construction”

Hüseyin Akhisar, a shipbuilding engineer, said that they used a 500 kilowatt and 2 200 horsepower 4 engine at a ferry boat.

Pointing out that for the first time in such a big project, domestic machinery is used, Akhisar said, “Therefore, we care about this and we want it to be successful. Because we predict that it will create a projection on the machines given to the maritime industry and that it will continue. The local TÜLOMSAŞ company continues to work on this and its new innovations. He is constantly improving his technologies on fuel, oil and environmental awareness. ”

"The fuel consumption of these engines will be much more economical than the existing ships," said Akhisar.

“An estimated 400 liters per hour seems to be spent per machine. There are 4 propellers on the ship. The propellers are designed to be operated with a single engine. Automation of the machines can be controlled from the captain's mansion and the engine room. As an advantage, I see the machine reaching high powers in small volumes. I think it can be improved further. As it is a domestic production, we think that the spare parts manufacturing of these machines will also contribute to the supplier industry. These engines will also generate less expenses on maintenance. ”
