    The Projects of Sultan Erdogan

    Post  The Ottoman on Sun Jul 31, 2016 10:00 am

    The Marmaray



    Marmaray is a partially operational rail transportation project in the Turkish city of Istanbul. It comprises an undersea rail tunnel under the Bosphorus strait, and the modernization of existing suburban railway lines along the Sea of Marmara from Halkalı on the European side to Gebze on the Asian side. The procurement of new rolling stock for suburban passenger traffic is also part of the project.




    Metrobüs



    Metrobüs is a 50 km bus rapid transit route in İstanbul, Turkey with 45 stations which follows the city's ring-road via Avcılar, Zincirlikuyu and the Bosphorus Bridge to Söğütlüçeşme using dedicated bus lanes for much of the route.

    The busway, the first section of which opened in 2007 after two years of construction, is used by a number of Metrobus lines which operate within this ‘closed’ system carrying 800,000 people daily. The Turkish authorities have since assisted with the development of a similar system in Lahore, Pakistan, which opened in 2013. The name Metrobüs was coined by the transit agency to suggest that this system is a hybrid between a metro train (Turkish: metro) and a bus[color=#990000 (Turkish: otobüs)[/color].




    YHT



    Yüksek Hızlı Tren or YHT (English: High-Speed Train) is the high-speed rail service of the Turkish State Railways, currently operating on two lines: Ankara to Istanbul via Eskişehir and Ankara to Konya via Polatlı. YHT is the only high-speed rail service in Turkey, with trains operating at speeds of up to 250 km/h (HT65000) or 300 km/h (HT80000).




    TAI TFX



    TAI TFX is a twin-engine all-weather Fifth-generation Turkish aerial superiority fighter jet being developed by Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) with technological assistance from BAE Systems of the United Kingdom. The aircraft is slated to replace the Turkish Air Force's F-16's and is being planned to be offered to foreign air forces as-well. The project is one of many ongoing high-profile military projects in Turkey.




    Altay (tank)



    The Altay is a modern main battle tank, designed and developed by Otokar, a subsidiary of Koç Holding, for the Turkish Army and export markets. It is named in honor of Army General Fahrettin Altay who commanded the 5th Cavalry Corps in the final stage of the Turkish War of Independence.




    The Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge



    The Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, initially named the Third Bosphorus Bridge, is a project to construct a bridge for rail and motor vehicle transit over the Bosphorus, north of two existing bridges in Istanbul, Turkey. The bridge will be situated between Garipçe in Sarıyer on the European side and Poyrazköy in Beykoz on the Asian side. The foundation stone laying ceremony was held on 29 May 2013.

    The bridge is part of the projected 260 km long Northern Marmara Motorway (Turkish: Kuzey Marmara Otoyolu), which will bypass urban areas of Istanbul in the north connecting Kınalı, Silivri in the west and Paşaköy, Hendek in the east. The 58.4 m wide bridge will be 2,164 m in length with a main span of 1,408 m. The main span of the bridge will be eighth-longest among suspension bridges in the world.




    RV MTA Turkuaz



    The RV MTA Turkuaz is a Turkish research and survey vessel owned by the General Directorate of Mineral Research and Exploration (MTA) in Ankara and will be operated in deep waters by its division of Geophysical Directorate for Subsea Geophysical Exploration. Commissioning of the research vessel is planned for 2016.

    The research vessel was ordered by Defence Industry Undersecretariate at Ministry of National Defence on April 24, 2012. She was entirely designed in SEFT Ship Design Co. by Turkish engineers, and built at Istanbul Shipyard in Tuzla, Istanbul, Turkey as the first-of-its-kind. She was launched on March 28, 2015. She will conduct a wide variety of research work including oceanography, hydrography, bathymetry, undersea geology, earthquake engineering, climate change, marine pollution, ecological research and undersea engineering in addition to geophysics for oil and gas exploration. The vessel cost around Turkish lira symbol 8x10px.png300 million (approximately US$115 million). It is projected that the vessel will be in use for at least 30 years

    The Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant



    The Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant is a nuclear power plant under construction at Akkuyu, in Büyükeceli, Mersin Province, Turkey. It will be the country's first nuclear power plant.

    In May 2010, Russia and Turkey signed an agreement that a subsidiary of Rosatom — Akkuyu NGS Elektrik Uretim Corp. — would build, own, and operate a power plant at Akkuyu comprising four 1,200 MW VVER units. The agreement was ratified by the Turkish Parliament in July 2010. Engineering and survey work started at the site in 2011. The construction of the first unit will begin in 2016, with the four units put into service in 2022–25.

    In 2013, Russian nuclear construction company Atomstroyexport (ASE) and Turkish construction company Ozdogu signed the site preparation contract for the proposed Akkuyu nuclear power plant. The contract includes excavation work at the site. The official launch ceremony took place in April 2015, and the first unit is expected to be completed in 2022.





    Kanal İstanbul



    Kanal İstanbul is the Turkish project name of the artificial sea-level waterway, which is being built by the Republic of Turkey on the European side of Turkey, connecting the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara, and hence to the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas. Kanal İstanbul would bisect the current European side of Istanbul and thus form an island between the continents of Asia and Europe (the island would have a shoreline with the Black Sea, Sea of Marmara, the new canal and the Bosphorus). The new waterway would bypass the current Bosphorus. Kanal İstanbul aims to minimise shipping traffic in the Istanbul Strait. The project is intended for the 100th anniversary in 2023 of the foundation of the Turkish Republic.

    The main purpose of the project is to reduce the marine traffic through the Bosphorus and minimize the risks and dangers associated particularly with tankers. The waterway will have a length of 45–50 km with a depth of 25 m. Its width will be 150 m on the surface and 120 m at the canal bed. These dimensions will allow the largest vessels and even submarines to pass.





    Istanbul New Airport



    Istanbul New Airport, or Third Airport, is an international airport under construction in Arnavutköy district on the European side of Istanbul, Turkey. The airport is planned as the largest airport in the world, with a 150 million passenger annual capacity, and was planned due to lack of capacity in the existing airports of Istanbul. It will be the third international airport to be built in Istanbul; Istanbul Atatürk Airport will be closed down once the new airport is operational. 27% of the construction of the airport was completed as of 9 June 2016.






    Turkey's 1st Landing Platform Dock



    SEDEF Gemi Insaati will construct the 27,436 tonne amphibious ship, based on Navantia's BPE (Buque de Proyección Estratégica) design, for the Turkish Navy's HCG-programme.

    Local industry has a large role in the project, with Navantia (apart from its design role) teamed with local firm AYESAS to develop the hardware for the ship's integrated platform management system (IPMS), installing the IPMS, testing it and providing in-service maintenance. Navantia is also responsible for delivering design and technology transfer, and five 8,000 kW MAN Diesel & Turbo SE 16V32/40 diesel engines.






    Indigenous Turkish Helicopter - (Arikopter)



    Since the start, the project has been a subjact for 15 international articles, over a 100 international reports and 40 Master's thesis. A team of 60 people have worked on it since it started in 2002 by ITU. It is to be completed next year. The integration of main and infrastructure to the body frame are being carried on in TUSAS at the moment. Transmision ground test are to be started next month in Istanbul. After completing the certification period, the helicopter would be produced for many different utilities, such as education, health, media, business and diplomatic purposes.

    Arikopter takes two pilots and six passengers, the rotor has a diagraqm of 11m, and it weighs two tons. National partners are TAI/TUSAS, ASELSAN, 5ABM, DEMETEK and PETEKSAN, Foreign partners are Turbomeca, Triumph, MVEN and AVIA.

    These are just a few projects. I hadd'nt enough time to make a complete list.

    Fact is that Erdogan changed Turkey's economy and infrastructure from Uganda-level to European-level.

    And he pay'd off Turkey's debt to the IMF.

    Turkey gets stronger and more independent.

    Thats the reason why US and Israel support the PKK and the Gulenists to destroy Turkey.
