Turkey's first new generation produced by TÜDEMSAŞ in Sivas national freight cars are in great demand. Turkey's first new generation of national freight cars 29,5 meters long with 2 vagonluk container carrying ability in a single wagon, about 9,5 shades lighter that is lighter than 26 percent from other cars of similar wagons, Again, according to equivalent cars in Europe with 25,5 tons of curb weight 4 more than tons of load carrying capability. This increase in carrying capacity gives the operator an advantage. Due to the light weight of tare, 15 has a higher load or lower cost advantage.
With the experience and experience of TÜDEMSAŞ, our country's pride in the production of freight wagons. To create a synergy by supporting the private sector and produced, it managed to export cars to the lightened tare Turkey's largest overseas wagon factory. Domestic wagons are made at 85 levels in freight wagons produced at TÜDEMSAŞ.
TÜDEMSAŞ is also the factory where Bozkurt, our first domestic and national steam locomotive, was produced in Sivas in 1961. Bozkurt 25 is on display in front of the factory after serving for years. He says that I am a work of Turkish Industry which is produced locally and nationally with all its parts in 1961. 1961 in Sivas Bozkurt and Eskişehir Karakurt locomotives produced, produced the revolutionary car of the Turkish Industry can now produce all the needs of our country as domestic and national. Do not import the Turkish industry to produce. May the Turkish industrialist win. Don't let the money go to the stranger. Adopt our National Industry as a principle.
In line with this principle, TÜDEMSAŞ passed the first 600 number of 2 wagons ordered by Azerbaijan last month and passed the tests. In addition, it signed a protocol with the US for the 80 feet articulated container transport wagon to be produced in cooperation with Gökyapı. The wagons to be produced will be exported to the US company GATX which is an international company providing rental services in many parts of the world.
Welcoming us in business; I would like to congratulate the General Manager Mr. Mehmet Başoğlu as well as all TÜDEMSAŞ management and wish them continued success.
