We would like to inform you more about BursaRay Rotterdam vehicles:
BursaRay vehicle / wagon requirement: Two vehicle purchase auctions were made for BursaRay previously. The first one was the scope of BursaRay construction, Siemens was 2 B48 type high-base vehicles and the second one was purchased from Bombardier. 80 high-tech Bombardier vehicles, each purchased at a price of 3.16 million Euros, are also used on Bursaray lines.
Therefore, the total 78 10 vehicles serve under the management of Burulaş with serial intervals exceeding XNUMX minutes on BursaRay lines.
Currently, the number of vehicles needed is at least 24 and the need needs to be met immediately. With the opening of the Kestel stage, this need will increase even more! Knowing this necessity, the work of Mr. Levent Fidansoy, the general manager of Burulaş, had already begun for a long time. There were two solutions to purchase a vehicle with a new tender or to maintain and use used vehicles in good condition.
1) If there was a new car purchase tender:
In case of a tender for the vehicles that will be needed at the first stage, the required budget would be 24 x 3 million EURO = 72 million EURO with the most optimistic calculation. The delivery period will be a minimum of two years!
2) Used vehicle solution in good condition:
If we calculate the cost: 24 x 125.000 EUR = 3 million EUR (only one new vehicle price) What about spare parts and other replacement costs 2 x 3 EUR = 24 million EUR. So in total 125.000 3 pieces modernized vehicle to the new vehicle price! Spare parts included! (Calculate a summary
6 Million EURO / 44 = 136.000 EUR All-inclusive cost per vehicle!
Bursa Metropolitan Municipality, which made this calculation, bought 44 high-based vehicles produced at the Düwag factory in the coastal city of the Netherlands, which is in a very good condition with the superior efforts of Levent Fidansoy. These vehicles are in good condition and suitable for BursaRay system.
According to the agreement made between Bursa Metropolitan Municipality / Burulaş AŞ and Rotterdam Train Company RET, the purchased Düwag SG2 wagons were Germany'about Rheinbach being taken to the city. Here, electrical and electronic components are renewed according to 1500 V DC. In addition, the exterior parts are renewed and most likely painted in Bursa green. Although we do not have any information about the replacement of air conditioning and on-board communication systems, we do not see them as a big problem.
Domestic vehicle production:
We support companies that produce domestic vehicles. He sees such solutions as a temporary solution for urgent needs. Very soon we wish to see the tram and car on the same tracks.
2 of the Rotterdam vehicles, which we expect to be officially announced soon, are in Bursa! There is a 750rd rail system with 3 V DC pantograph and side energy on two trains coming to Bursaray Main Control Center. Even dynamic gabare tests were carried out on the BursaRay line of the vehicles that were tested in the warehouse area.
Siemens B80 …… .27,70 m
Bombardier N 28,14 m
Düwag SG2 UM 29,80 m
The vehicles that do not cause problems in length, width and height are quite spacious, their doors are wide and aesthetic. In addition to this beautiful feature that we think is ease of entry and exit during the intensive use and ease for disabled roads, the operating speed of the vehicles is also very satisfactory.
