A different path is now chosen for supply of new high speed trains.
There’ll be a pre-qualification tender for 96 HTS sets in April. Most important thing about this tender is that it includes technology transfer and local production of sets in Turkey.
In other words, a part of this tender and all new HST set orders after this will be produced in Turkey, by subsidiary of TCDD, Tulomsas.
