The eyes of the world are at the National Rail Systems Center of Excellence to be Established in Eskişehir: Anadolu University Rector Naci Gündoğan explained the National Rail Systems Excellence Center to be established in Eskişehir.
Trains from the Balkans to European countries, especially the national High Speed Train (YHT), will be tested at the National Rail Systems Center of Excellence (URAYSİM), which will be started by Anadolu University in Eskişehir. The whole world is looking forward to the center, whose foundation is planned to be laid in the spring of next year.
Providing information about the project, Anadolu University Rector Prof. Dr. Naci Gündoğan, stating that this center has two main objectives, the first one is; He said that the testing and certification of the towing and towed vehicles on the railways was carried out and the second was the establishment of an R&D center there. uraysim would serve not only to Turkey from the Balkans to Europe expressing Rector Gundogan, "Now is estimated to be approximately $ 2023 billion of exports in the framework of Turkey's 500 vision. For this, we must definitely produce high-tech products. We cannot reach these numbers by only producing textiles and exporting only fruits and vegetables. For this, we need to produce high-tech products. This is one of those products. In addition, there is no such center in this geography. The company that produces many railway vehicles from the Balkans, the Caucasus, the Middle East and even Europe will come here for testing. Tests and certification will be done here ”.
”WE WILL DELIVER R & D CENTER TO OUR OWN RESEARCH OFFICES“
Saying, “We have sent 20 research assistants to Germany, the Czech Republic and the United States of America for the R&D center we are planning to establish,” Gündoğan said, “Our young people will return after 3 years and we will hand over this R&D center to them. Research will be done here, high-tech products will be produced. In other words, we will be based on this not only for testing and certification, but also with the R&D center. Of course, this process naturally prolongs. Because we don't build a playground or anything. Very high tech stuff is being done. A rail of 50-60 kilometers will be laid in that area. So this is not such a simple thing. The route of this should be determined very well, and problems should not be experienced tomorrow the day after. That's why we always work with specialist companies, ”he said.
AC THE BASIS OF THE CENTER WILL BE LIKE THE MARCH-APRIL “
Professor Dr. Gundogan, said the last point related to the center of this issue, he continued:
I The zoning plan change was made. The process is trying to be completed. Our tender preparations are about to be completed. Hopefully we will go to the tender as January-February. We plan to throw the foundation of the center as March-April. Of course, the work does not stop after the foundation is laid. After that, the tenders will come. Just like the March-April, the foundation is only about the building. Then there are devices to be taken to the test center. Auctions are more important. We talked to the Deputy Minister of Relation on this matter. We are increasing our budget for the next year. 240 million dollars in 2015 300 million will do a transfer in total 540 million pounds. The cost may be even more. Because there are so many things ahead of us. Ümüz
ED THE CENTER WILL BE ESTABLISHED BY THE WORLD IS FOLLOWING “
Noting that everyone is aware of the center to be established and that the whole world follows the center, Gündoğan said, “Let me give a very good example about this. One month ago, the CEO of the Czech Republic State Railways sent us a mail. It says; “We want to be a partner in this. How much material value will add, let's talk to you in December. Let's be in this project. " The guys know this project is a brilliant project. They want to be partners in money. Of course, we cannot legally participate in this project right now, but I attach great importance to the offer. This shows how brilliant the project is ”.
"THIS IS ONLY THE CENTRAL ESKISEHIR TURKEY NOT BRING VIABILITY"
Rector Gündoğan, "This center will provide very serious contributions," using the expressions, said:
“Various buildings will be built on an area of 700 acres determined in Alpu. It will be built in a hangar where 3 high speed train sets will enter. Of course, hangars will be private hangars, not ordinary ones. For example, a world famous company wants one of these hangars. There is nothing yet, but they say "I want to rent one of these hangars already". Therefore, an investment will come here. In addition, a number of private entrepreneurs are looking for a place in the Alpu region. A wagon factory has found a place here. In other words, this center will be surrounded and will bring vitality to Alpu. Of course, these centers not only for Alpu, also a very important center for Turkey and Eskişehir. Also, there are only such centers in the Czech Republic and Germany. The centers here are more backward than ours. Because this center will be newly built and will be equipped with the latest technology. "
On the other hand, Turkey Locomotive and Engine Industry Inc. (TÜLOMSAŞ), this project, where the national High Speed Train will be tested, will be implemented in the Alpu district of Eskişehir.
