”Railways Become a Global Player“
Ahmet Arslan, the Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications said that Turkish Railways became a global player., We have made our railways a 'global player' with what we have done for 15 years; we have begun to make a competitive structure on a world scale. Of course, if you do not have the domestic industry, you cannot become a global player if you cannot produce your own track, your own vehicles, your own wheel. For this reason, we first established our domestic industry, we have come a very important way in a short time. Production of the national engine started. The construction process of our National High Speed Train was started. The concept design is complete. Kons
”Ankara-Sivas YHT Line 2018 Will End“
Stating that the works continue on the Ankara-Sivas YHT line, Arslan said: “Hopefully, our intention is to finish the end of 2018 and meet Sivas with a high-speed train, but we will not stay here. We started the tender process of the first phase of Sivas-Erzincan, and we will extend it to Erzincan. We will not be satisfied with that place and we will take it to Erzurum, Kars because Baku-Tbilisi-Kars and Marmaray will be very meaningful at that time. We will not be content with this, but we will carry the high speed train to the south again by saying Sivas-Elazığ-Malatya. ”
Referring to the railway projects under construction, Arslan continued his words as follows. “Knitting the country with iron nets is a railroad across the country. It is also important to connect Sivas to Konya via Ankara. We will extend the high-speed train line not only in Konya but to Karaman-Mersin-Adana and from there to Gaziantep and Şanlıurfa. The construction of the high-speed train to İzmir continues, Bursa continues, but we do not settle for it, but hopefully when we weave everywhere in the country via Afyonkarahisar, Antalya, Kırıkkale, Çorum, Samsun, Erzincan, Black Sea, Trabzon. then we will become a country built with a real rail network. ”
Lighter and Efficient than Their peers
Talking about the advantages of the national freight wagon, Arslan shared the following information;
“The first is the feature of being able to carry 29,5-carriage container in a single carriage with a length of 2 meters. Another important feature is that it is about 9,5 tons lighter than similar wagons. This means it is 26 percent lighter. Again with its 25,5 tons of empty weight, it gives the opportunity to carry more than 4 tons of cargo compared to equivalent wagons in Europe. This increase in carrying capacity is of course a high benefit advantage for the operator. Due to the lightness of the tare, it means 15 percent more burden or lower cost. Thanks to the 3 H type bogies and compact brake system produced for the first time in our country, the cost of carrying loads by 15 percent has been reduced. Low noise level while driving is another advantage of our freight wagons in terms of management. The production cost of a single new generation national freight wagon, which can serve as two wagons, is also 15 percent lower. Of course, this also means that the cost of long-term care is low. ” said.
Ür 150 pieces will be produced in this year “
Arslan said, ine We aim to start mass production of the wagon, which is produced as a prototype, and from here to hope. This year, 150 will make the production and both domestic and export market will be presented. Bu
