GE Transportation and Tulomsas have closed a deal for the delivery of five PowerHaul diesel locomotives to Korfez Ulastirma A.Ş.. Korfez Ulastirma is the first private railway operator of Turkey taking such a step since the Turkish government has started releasing the use of mainlines for private operators.


Korfez Ulastirma is a subsidiary of Turkey's largest refinery: Tüpraş. The operator already hires five PowerHaul locomotives from TCDD, so this order will see the Korfez Ulastirma locomotive fleet double. The company also has a fleet of 549 wagons available for its operations.
