2019-03-31 - [TR] First PowerHaul loco for Korfez Ulastirma

Home News Archive 2019-03-31 - [TR] First PowerHaul loco for Korfez Ulastirma

Production of the first new PowerHaul locomotive for Korfez Ulastirma is nearing completion at the Tulomsas works. The designated KU-DE 0001 is the first of five of the type, ordered from GE Transporation and Tulomsas in 2018.


Korfez Ulastirma is the first private railway operator of Turkey ordering locomotives 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.
