The War of the month of pride of Sakarya TÜVASAŞ
The first plants of TÜVASAŞ were launched in 25 October 1951 as wagon repair workshop in order to eliminate foreign dependency in railway. The humble, modest workshops of those times were transformed into a huge factory, which now sells wagons abroad, and sells great products. There is a separate world established. General Manager Erol Inal briefly learns the history and the ones that keep in my mind. He says; Agon Savaş Abicim, The first wagon was produced at 1961 in 1962, which was converted to Adapazarı Railway Factory (ADF). As a result of the export efforts started in 1971, 77 wagons have been exported to Pakistan and Bangladesh, can you look at the miracle? I ask: - What happens in the road map? - In 1975, the production of RIC type passenger cars in international standards was started in the facilities named lar Adapazarı Wagon Industrial Enterprise ler (ADVAS). From the 1976, the production of electric suburban lines with the license of Alstom was started and a total of 75 arrays (225 units) were produced and delivered to TCDD. - And then it became corporate, right? - Yeah. He won his current status at 1985. Turkey Wagon Industry Corporation (TÜVASAŞ) was. After that, the company also focused on the development of passenger carriages and electrical arrays, research and development activities, engineering services and new projects. - You got a big blow at the earthquake. I had come and saw the damage - unfortunately it was so. May Allah not let those days live. We lost our production capability. Workshops and infrastructure became unusable, repair and production stopped completely. However, from April 2000, wreck removal works have been started. In a short time, rebuilding and repair activities were restarted with the great efforts of TÜVASAŞ personnel. - Today? - Now, we can explain our chest, TCDD, which is both capitalist and sole customer, as of the end of last year, we made the maintenance, repair, overhaul and modernization of 793 passenger cars with the production of one thousand 36 passenger cars. In addition, our country is not only dependent on foreign rail vehicles, but also contributes significantly to our national economy. Let's visit our secret heroes in their workshops and take a souvenir photo.
