New Generation National Freight Car Introduced

New Generation National Freight Wagon was Introduced: Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Ahmet Arslan pointed out the importance of not only transportation in railway sector but also locomotive, passenger car, freight wagon and side industry in the field of manufacturing. It is also important to be stepped on.

Minister Arslan, Turkey Railway Machines Industry Inc.. (TÜDEMSAŞ), together with the Minister of National Education İsmet Yılmaz, participated in the publicity program organized by the Milli New Generation National Freight Wagon un in Sivas.

In his speech, Arslan said that he applauded and saluted the valuable employees of TÜDEMSAŞ with respect and gratitude.

Adına Because it was important for them to believe, ortaya Arslan pointed out the importance of the efforts of TÜDEMSAŞ employees to know the point of arrival of railway sector in this country for 1,5 centuries, and the point of arrival of TÜDEMSAŞ today and to carry this flag upwards. Arslan, "so I thank them very much." He said.

Arslan, in the most important days of the struggle for independence of the country, trying to divide the country by the owls, "Anatolia is the geography of the whole place is Sivas," he said, becoming a national unity started to fight against the consciousness of the satisfaction of being in the presentation of such a project in Sivas.

“We are now a leader country“

All the world's "Now with confident and believes in the power of a completely different Turkey interlocutor" also emphasizes Arslan, he continued:

I Not so much, when I spoke to the Korean minister who I spoke to a week ago, he had a very clear statement; 'You may not be aware, but the distance traveled by the world in Turkey in recent years 15 very clearly aware of. This distance makes you leader in your region. It makes you a center of attraction in your area. So 1915 we wanted to be together with Turkey, while the Dardanelles Bridge, but this is a first, we are located in the here together many more projects with Turkey from this region, we want to produce and provide services to the surrounding geography. ' For this reason, one of the best indicators of the point where Turkey. With its economy, development, and more importantly, we are now a leader country with its geography as well as the oppressed and the victims of the world. Of course, the leader should be the targets of the country, and should take firm steps towards these goals. Of course, the world does not follow, keep pace with the world development that should be a Turkey. It knows the transport infrastructure in the ministry which we are responsible on this motto, the type does not matter, rail, sea, road, air, communication, the point we have reached in transport infrastructure being moved Turkey among the most important countries in the world makes us're satisfied with. "

Arslan, noting the importance of the geography where Turkey is located, "to integrate all the transport modes of Turkey in the bridge position between Europe and Asia together by integrating logistics centers, it was very important to plan such a Turkey." He said.

Arslan stated that they had done many things in 2002 year in 15 as the Ministry and stated that this would not be enough.

Minister Arslan, underlining that Turkey is a very important responsibility imposed on the shoulders of geography that's been said, "This we have put a great responsibility to fulfill the objectives we say is not enough. Hopefully the railway sector, especially in all sectors of our country will move to much better points. "He said.

Europe's 6, the world's 8 high-speed train that emphasizes the importance of being a country Arslan, said:

Önemli In the railway sector, not only transportation, but also in manufacturing, locomotive, passenger car, freight wagon and side industry are very important. Which makes us very happy. More importantly, it is also important to have stepped into the period of 'high-speed train' from the 'black train delayed' period. I congratulate everyone who contributed to this issue. We care more about something. It is important for our country to create the shortest, shortest and least cost middle corridor between Europe and Asia especially in international transportation. We built Marmaray as a complement to the central corridor, Baku-Tbilisi-Kars is about to end, but only to make a corridor only from Kapikule Halkalıto come to Istanbul, from Ankara to Ankara said it was not enough. '

Ankara-Sivas YHT Project

Arslan gave information about the high-speed train project between Ankara and Sivas.

Arslan continued his studies on the whole route, said:

Iz Hopefully, our intention is to end the 2018 and bring it to the high speed train in Sivas, but we will not stay here. We initiated the tender process of the first stage of Sivas-Erzincan and we will extend it to Erzincan. We will not be satisfied with it, but we will take it to Erzurum, Kars, because Baku-Tbilisi-Kars and Marmaray make much more sense. In addition, Sivas-Elazig-Malatya again to the south again we will carry the fast train because, iron network to make the railroads all over the country passes through. It is also important to connect Sivas to Konya via Ankara. Not to stay in Konya-Karaman-Mersin-Adana and then Gaziantep, Şanlıurfa'ya will extend the high-speed train line. The construction of the high-speed train up to Izmir continues, Bursa continues but not enough to go to Antalya via Afyonkarahisar, to Çorum via Samsun Kirikkale, to Samsun, to Black Sea via Erzincan, to Trabzon with high speed trains. When we weave, then we will become a country woven with a real railway network. ör

Minister Arslan stressed that not only the infrastructure would be enough, but also that they want to become a global player in the sector and be able to compete on a world scale.

“We've traveled significant distances“

Stating that it is important to develop the domestic industry, Arslan said:

, In order to develop our own tracks, we have made significant progress in producing our own vehicles, our own wheels. Don't say 'wheel'. Another bogie on the railways (the system that provides the movement of the wheels) system. It's really important. We produced a rail to use in our own lines in Kardemir. So we modernized our car park. We have both improved our existing conventional lines and become electrified and signaled. We have become one of the important countries with high-speed train processors. Of course, this is very important to us. We also produce rail fasteners in Erzincan in order to develop the railway industry. In Adapazarı, we established a factory which can produce high speed train cars and metro cars. We started to produce high-speed train tracks in Karabük. We produce wheel sets with MKE in Kırıkkale. In this regard, we are grateful for the contribution of our esteemed Minister to the Ministry of National Defense. We established the fast train scissor factory in Çankırı. We are producing and exporting a new generation locomotive in TÜLOMSAŞ in Eskişehir. We started production of the national engine. The process of making a national high speed train was important, we completed the concept design. More importantly, it was very important to produce the tools to walk on these roads, to produce the materials to be used in these roads locally and even to become the exporter in the region. For this reason, together with the railroaders, we are now saying to the world that we do not satisfy "yes."

Minister Arslan, the first steam locomotive in the 1961, Bozkurt imza producing Sivas, another success, signed another signature, pointing to the source of success, olan So we congratulate TÜDEMSAŞ again. This signature 3 is a signature in the year. 3 years may seem long to you, but in these sectors, 3 in this type of production is very short, I can easily say that this is one of the people involved in the business.

Advantages of the national freight car

Talking about the advantages of the national freight wagon, Arslan gave the following information:

Önemli First, the ability to carry the 29,5 wagon container in a single car with its 2 meter length is very important. Another important feature is that similar wagons are lighter than about 9,5 tones. This means that the percentage is lighter than the 26. Again, the 25,5 gives the opportunity to carry more weight than the 4 tone, compared to the equivalent wagons in Europe. This increase in the carrying capacity of the operator, of course, the benefit of high benefit. Due to the light weight of the pipe, the 15 ratio means more load or lower cost. 3 units, which are produced for the first time in Turkey, have been reduced with 15 ratio by means of H type bogie and compact brake system. The low noise level during the journey is far from the noise, and another advantage of these freight wagons in terms of business. The production cost of a single-generation national freight car, which can serve as two wagons, is also lower than the 15. Of course, this also means that the cost of long-term maintenance is also low. We aim to start mass production of the wagon produced as a prototype in a short time and from here to hope. Friends who work at TÜDEMSAŞ have a word, they said, '3 brought to this stage in the year, we brought to the production stage, but the point is not enough. This year we will produce 150 and we will be presenting to both domestic and export markets. We tell our friends that the number of 150 is significant, the number of 150 is big but the targets of Sivas, TÜDEMSAŞ's targets and the goals of our country are insufficient.

After the speeches, TÜDEMSAŞ General Manager Yıldıray Koçarslan gave a plaque to the Ministers Arslan and Yılmaz.

Arslan and Yilmaz, who cut the ribbon in front of the New Generation National Freight Wagon, made observations.


  1. Why is my national dmy tools changed 10-20 -70 years ago? In the old years, there were specialist staff who knew their jobs.Lakin trained expert technical staff were forced to retire by senior management was expelled was unleashed. The materials of national vehicles must be native. bearing wheel t.valf.regulator etc. should be made in the domestic market.

  2. Thank you Mahmut Bey,

    10-20 know that there are some attempts before. Wagon technology does not make a great progress, technologically many years ago National wagon manufacturing could be done!

    I think it is not necessary since the railway freight transport is ignored after 1940s and we are mostly directed to road transport.
