edilon)(sedra welcomes TCDD chairman Süleyman Karaman

InnoTrans 2014 was a complete success for edilon)(sedra as it offered exciting discussions, a good business atmosphere and interesting meetings with key decision-makers.

One of those key decision-makers is Mr. Süleyman Karaman, Chairman of Turkish State Railways (TCDD), who was accompanied by a business delegation from TCDD. We had a constructive rail technology conversation with both Mr. Karaman and his delegation.  TCDD was very interested in edilon)(sedra’s latest embedded rail innovations and rail track solutions, aimed at increasing passenger and freight volumes and the future of high-speed rail in Turkey.

Mr. Karaman stated that various embedded rail solutions are required for tunnels, level crossings and newly constructed high speed railway lines, as Turkey is currently one of the biggest railway markets in Europe. He also added that TCDD is open to new innovations in railway technology and Turkish designed locomotives and high speed line sets. ‚Our aim is to bring these innovations to the next InnoTrans exhibition.‘
