Turkey's largest dockyard to be built

The ground-breaking ceremony of the world's second largest, Turkey's largest dockyard that is planned to be built at the Yumurtalik freezone in the southern city of Adana will be held in July.

The ground-breaking ceremony of the world's second largest, Turkey's largest dockyard that is planned to be built at the Yumurtalik freezone in the southern city of Adana will be held in July.

Bulent Uzunsac, the chairman of the Hay Ship Building and Repairing Co.(HGS) board of executives said they were in the last phase in the dock yard investment and indicated they acquired all the necessary licenses.

Usunsac noted that they initially received 550 billion Euro credit from Germany for the dockyard that is foreseen to be built over a 800,000 square meter area.

Usunsac stressed that the said dockyard would be the world's second largest and Turkey's largest and said the first section of the dockyard to be finished by June 2009 would create jobs for 7,000 people.

Usunsac said the dockyard would consist of two sections -- the first to produce ships weighing from 30 to 70 thousand deadweight tons(DWT) and the second section to produce ships weighing 200 to 300 thousand DWTs -- and would build 35 ships per year.

Recalling that they signed an agreement for the production of two cycle engines with MAN Diesel A/S, Usunsac said they would also build an engine factory at the dockyard site under the agreement.

The factory that would employ ultra modern technology and will build 120 engines per year with 5 to 60 thousand kilowatts power.

Usunsac said they would only use the engines produced in this factory in the ships produced at the dockyard, noting that they would aim to meet the demands in Turkey, Middle East, East Mediterranean and Turkish Republics.
