Minister Turhan, in his speech at the commissioning ceremony of the tugboat with advanced propulsion system made by Sanmar Shipyard, said that there was once a shipyard activity stuck almost in Tuzla, and that Turkish shipping was going through hard times.
their work to revive the maritime sector Turhan explained that they found a good spot in today, "Turkey, the Turkish nation, we have all kinds of support for functionality folks remember the sailors. As the Ministry of our seas, we have done whatever it takes to clear the path of our seafarers. We have realized very important initiatives and policies. We have made arrangements to pave the way for the private sector. We have carried our ships to the white list, that is, to the super league with the audits and practices we have realized. In order to share the burden on our seafarers, we implemented the SCT-free fuel application. Since 2004, the annual average of 496 million pounds to the sector, we have provided close to 8 billion pounds. Our number of international ports increased from 152 to 181. Our number of marinas increased from 41 to 62, and our yacht mooring capacity increased from 8 to 500. Our Turkish-owned maritime fleet grew more than 19 times compared to 2003 and reached 3 million DWT from 8,9 million DWT. Our 28,6th-owned Turkish fleet ranks 19th in the world today. With the strengthening of our country's role in world maritime transport, container handling increased by 15 times and reached 5 million TEU. The total cargo handling amounted to 11 million tonnes and 190 million tonnes. ”
“Today we are one of the leading countries in the world shipbuilding industry”
Turhan pointed out that there were revolutionary developments in the shipbuilding industry and that it was a very strategic area of activity with its high added value products. The labor-intensive nature of the shipbuilding industry and its wide range of activities also contribute to increasing employment. Fortunately, today we are one of the leading countries in the world shipbuilding industry. In this, the role of our shipyards to cover all our shores from Tuzla, where it is stuck, plays a major role. Over the years, the investments made by our state and the design support expanded, the lease term of the shipyards increased to 49 years, the opening of investments, the government paid a thousandths of revenue instead of the rent paid, the removal of ecrimisil payment obligations, the shipyards to the front of the credit. and the approval of EIA reports and development plans of our shipyards. ”
Turhan stated that the Turkish shipbuilding industry has become an important sector capable of building environmentally sensitive ships using the latest technology and that 81 shipyards deserve appreciation.
Emphasizing that R & D and innovation must be developed in order to have a say in the world market, Turhan said, inden One of the best examples of this work is the BOĞAÇAY 38 Hybrid Tugboat.
Among the other technological features of the tug, it is very important that it has the world's first AVD, the advanced variable propulsion system. Sanmar's success is, of course, not accidental. Sanmar is a pioneer in the world that built the first natural gas tugboat and then the first autonomous tugboat. Today, the first hydraulic hybrid tug to build another first in the name of our country and our sector is a pride in the situation. Bulundu
World's first rit Hydraulic Hybrid ”tugboat with Advanced Variable Drive technology
The tugboat built at Sanmar's Altınova Shipyard was built by integrating Advanced Variable Drive technology into the tugboat.
This innovation, developed jointly with Caterpillar Propulsion, will have lower emissions and lower fuel consumption. The tug, classed by ABS and which will wave the Turkish flag, was produced with fully computerized modeling.
BOĞAÇAY, which is 24 meters long, has a pulling power of 70 tons and has a propeller system that can rotate around its own axis, has a fire extinguishing capacity of 2 tons per hour.
Mr. Ali Gürün, Vice Chairman of the Board of Sanmar, stated that BOĞAÇAY 38 will be exported to Mexico.
