Bombardier Transportation and Bozankaya have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to strengthen their relationship, relating to the manufacture of high-speed trains in Turkey. The Memorandum was signed in advance of an expected invitation to tender from the Turkish State Railway (TCDD) for the development and production of high-speed trains for use on the newly developed rail network between Istanbul and Ankara.

Furio Rossi, Managing Director Turkey for Bombardier Transportation said:

“Turkey has a clear vision of the critical role rail plays in sustainable economic development and is making strategic investments necessary to ensure that vision is realised.  Turkey has stated it will invest over 45 billion for rail products and infrastructure. We at Bombardier see great potential in these plans and are pleased to have found a strategic partner in Bozankaya. We are looking forward to working together in providing innovative solutions to Turkey. With Bombardier’s know-how of engineering and transfer of technology, and Bozankaya’s expertise in manufacturing vehicles both locally and internationally, we will succeed in providing the best possible vehicles for Turkey, made in Turkey.”

Murat Bozankaya, CEO of Bozankaya said:

“In Bombardier, we have found a very complementary partner and together we can enable the Turkish people to get to their destinations in a quick and comfortable, reliable and modern mode of transit.”
