RSK Chairman Kenan Işık:
Not a domestic car, but a national locomotive.
Rail systems sector 2005- 2023 years between 50 billion 440 million dollars over investment plans in Turkey 2023 targeted melt to reach for the first sector 2020 vision of President Kenan have saved the RSK Board determines Light, Adapazari in the sector rail systems, an area in Eskişehir and Ankara Noting that production basin will occur, this production center; stressed that the vehicle, locomotive, train sets and light rail systems will be designed. Işık stated that they will move towards becoming a technology transfer center as well as a platform with high local contribution rate in rail systems, and said that it should focus on high-speed train production with advanced technology.
Işık underlines that the priority should be local and national locomotive production rather than domestic automobile production. It should not be forgotten that even if the start of the production of domestic cars today, the result will be 1000-1000 will be electric and driverless cars on the roads after years. Un Giving information about the global developments in the sector, Işık said, bilgi There is a change in the production cost index in terms of global value chain.
The advantage in production costs is shifting from the Far East to the US. In other words, production shifts to emerging markets with low labor costs. Turkey, remains competitive in the world in terms of production levels. Assuming production costs in Germany, this figure 100 121, 100 in the United States, is 98 in Turkey. As can be seen, we maintain our competitive edge. We have to go into production with high added value. We have to create value chains. So we have to act together, Yani he said.
Işık enumerates the objectives of the railway systems sector, stating that their goal is to develop design, R & D and innovation, and become a production center, stating: Işık Testing and certification in our sector is a must. Because the product you cannot test is not the product. The product you are unable to certify is non-salable. To have the technology, product development, testing and documentation to offer to the market is a whole.
Technicians, academicians and researchers are still in need. We need to increase cooperation and sharing in our sector. We have to open new markets with new projects, products and services.
URAYSIM is an important investment to achieve them. With URAYSİM, we will establish a center of excellence in the rail sector. URAYSİM will provide us with significant advantages with its test path capability and test infrastructure as well as being the certification authority. We should increase our production with the question 'can we sell' rather than 'national or local' questions. We are in the process of establishing a Rail Systems Design Center in Eskişehir. Studies on the model of this center continue. Bu
Chairman of the Board of ESO Savaş Özaydemir:
A very important subsidiary industry in Eskişehir
ESO Chairman of the Board Savaş Özaydemir stated that the rail systems are a sector focusing on the Eskişehir industry. The production here is more dependent on capital. The need for resource needs to be improved to improve production capability.
In Eskişehir, a very important sub-industry culture was formed. In Eskişehir we will train those who come from other countries in the field of rail systems. But 'we do, we must' and we should not spend our day with. We need a man to screw us. Vocational schools with higher education standards should be established in industrial areas. If there is a school in every industrial area, the technical personnel employment gap will be eliminated. It is said that the domestic car will not be sold at a meeting on automotive. Everything has an economy. It should be known that cars will be electric and driverless in the future. Gelecek Özaydemir, who predicted that the high-speed demand will be born to rail systems in the coming period, ir Investments are made in these areas and we should continue to take our place here. Eskişehir industry will continue to have a say in this area with its significant supplier industry investments and production capability Esk.
