National electric locomotive exports will add momentum to Turkey E1000, as well as the high current account deficit reduction in mainline locomotive power, assuming the leadership of the high-speed trains and urban rail vehicle production. E1000 realized with TÜBİTAK Public Research Support Group funds, Science, Industry and Technology Minister Fikri Işık ve Minister of National Education Dr. Nabi Avcıhas taken its place on the tracks with a ceremony to be held at Eskişehir TCDD Hasanbey Logistics Center with the participation of.


Performing the opening ceremony TÜBİTAK MAM President Assoc. Dr. Bahadır Tunaboylu, He said that one of the most concrete examples of domestic technologies that will carry Turkey forward is the E1000. Stating that the E1000, where all components in the rail vehicle sector are produced locally, costs 9.5 million TL, Tunaboylu said, “The design and manufacture of the first national traction converter, which is very important for our country, the hardware and software of the traction control unit, the hardware and software of the central control units, dynamic modeling studies, dynamometer tests of traction motors were carried out completely domestically in our country. Such a project to our country kazanWe are happy to climb. We wish the E1000, which came to life with the partnership of TÜBİTAK MAM, TÜLOMSAŞ and TCDD, to be beneficial for our country. KazanWe will be able to use the technologies we have developed, our trained manpower, our design ability and the way we have taken in innovation, and our advanced technology traction systems in more powerful different rail projects. We will continue to develop new technologies,” he said.


Stating that an important vision has been prepared for the restructuring of railways since 2004 at the opening ceremony. General Manager of TÜLOMSAŞ Hayri Avcıunderlined that an important stage has been reached in the studies. Stating that E1000 is an important note to be recorded in history, Avcı said, “The national electric locomotive E1000 is a complete engineering success. With this project, which has been completed in 4 years, we have become one of the rare countries in the world that develops its own software and hardware in the locomotive industry. We have survived an important threshold today. As of 2016, we will start producing electric main locomotives with our own brand. Another important project ahead is the National High Speed ​​Train. We continue our works for its production. We would like to thank everyone who supports and supports the E1000, the demonstrator and herald of such a vision. ”


transmitting information about the activities performed at the ceremony for the rail transport sector in Turkey for rail vehicles that will bring electric locomotives national authorities become one of the world E1000 Talat Aydın, Deputy Undersecretary of the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications If that Turkey has achieved a great success in the rail transportation needs for technology, he said. Emphasizing that 100 percent domestic electric locomotive, led by TÜBİTAK MAM and TÜLOMSAŞ, is an important step in stepping into foreign sectors, Aydın said, “E1000 has an important place among high speed and fast railroad projects since 2003. We have given more speed to national train studies for national projects for high speed and fast transportation. Our important goals are from rail fasteners to the sleeper factory and to the production of diesel or electric locomotives and passenger wagons; at this point we have important works. With the valuable contributions of our universities, we will increase our work with modern driving systems on railways. We congratulate everyone who contributed to the E1000 and offer our thanks on behalf of our ministry. ”


Noting that the weight of the railway in the story of some cities at the ceremony
Minister of National Education Dr. Nabi AvcıHe stated that Eskişehir is one of these cities and that railway is very important in its culture. Sultan of the first rail moves in Turkey. Mentioning that it started in the reign of Abdülhamid, Minister Avcı said, “I hope that the dream of connecting our geography with railways will continue with the second move. We have projects that will revive the Silk Road over the railway. High-speed trains are also starting to flow on our tracks. A project that will appeal to the inspiration of the E1000 century, which is the property of the domestic and domestically included system. As Eskişehir, we are happy to host this auspicious development. I present our thanks to those who contributed. ”
