The "domestic" requirement brought to the tender of the Ankara Metro triggered Turkish companies. 10 “babayigit” came together for the production of domestic tram and metro wagon.
Ankara Chamber of Industry (ASO) President Nurettin Özdebir in Turkey said they brought together 10 companies to produce local tram and metro wagons. The first step will be the tender of 14 wagons set of Ankara Metro on February 324. Let us explain the details… The Ministry of Transport announced that Ankara Metro will hold the 324 set wagon tender for 14 February. According to the tender specifications announced with the announcement made on December 29, 324 sets will be delivered in 29 months. The first 75 of the wagons will be delivered in 14 months. The delivery of the remaining 249 will be completed gradually in 29 months. However, the ministry also set a condition for the tender; “The domestic contribution will be 75 percent in the production of the first 30 sets, and 51 percent in the next.” Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for domestic car "off a brave one" after the call on the train 'locals' who have the condition ASO, will produce tender is opened in Turkey have started a brave call.
10 COMPANY MEET
ASO President Özdebir, dozens of companies have reached the conclusion that the world is actually known as the giant company to produce in Turkey. Özdebir noted that tramway and metro production are intertwined, but they are working on the formula to bring together 10 main contractor companies under the two companies. We asked Özdebir about the firms and provided the following details, provided that we did not write their names: “A company from Ankara is producing for one of the important players in the world. They have produced 800 sets so far. It also has R&D centers in Istanbul, and factories in Ankara, Germany and the USA. Another company in Bursa has already made the first domestic tram. Received 18 orders. Apart from that, it also produces 80 percent domestic fuel wagons in Kayseri. There are also companies from Izmit, Eskisehir and Izmir. ” Noting that the efforts to establish a joint company continue, Özdebir said that at the first stage, existing production areas will be used and action will be taken to build a new factory in a short time. The tender on February 14 can be entered as a company, not a consortium. For this, one company will have to enter the tender and others will have to operate under this producer.
