ASPİLSAN Enerji also localized another product, the Nickel Cadmium Rail System Battery System, by getting a domestic product certificate.
ASPİLSAN Enerji, which has been providing innovative solutions to the military industry's energy demands since its inception, has greatly grown its portfolio with new products in recent years by diversifying its business.
"We are moving forward with the goal of reducing our foreign dependency in our efforts to develop our defence industry and strengthen our country's industry with domestic and national resources," Ferhat Özsoy, General Manager of ASPLSAN Energy, and he added “A domestic and national solution provider in the portable energy sector, said about the domestic goods certificate that was entitled to receive. As ASPİLSAN Enerji, we've taken a big step in reducing our reliance on foreign suppliers for rail system battery technologies. Our Nickel Cadmium rail system battery system has earned a Domestic Goods Certificate as of September 23, 2021, which can only be produced by our company in our country and by three companies worldwide. We would like to express our gratitude to ASPİLSAN employees and senior management, who contributed to the development and product development of a technology that is not currently available in our country and is completely import substitution, as well as our stakeholders, vehicle manufacturers and operators, the Presidency of Defence Industries, who believed in our effort and effort, TSKGV (Turkish Armed Forces Strengthening Foundation) executives, and all relevant state institutions.
ASPİLSAN Enerji Aviation, Marine, and Rail Systems Manager Murat Kaan remarked of ASPİLSAN Enerji’s work on rail systems, "Our systems, which create a difference in terms of both cost and efficiency compared to their competitors, have all rail system standards and certifications." "Our battery technology is presently employed in tram and metro vehicles owned by Kayseri Transportation, SAMULA (Samsun Transportation Inc.), Adana Metro, and Istanbul Metro A," Kaan continued. Our business also designed the battery system for the E5000, which is our country's first national electric locomotive project, and it was completed and delivered.
In addition, the design phases for the Gayrettepe-Istanbul Airport, ASELSAN Projects, Bozankaya Gebze-Darca subway, and Gaziantep-Gaziray Suburban projects have been completed.
We can state that our foreign dependency in a vital and critical technology in the rail system sector has come to an end thanks to our battery systems that comply with international standards and meet all of the parameters and requirements set out by global vehicle manufacturers. In this scenario, domestic rail system battery production will contribute value to our economy by lowering our current account deficit and creating new job opportunities.” he added.
