Aselsan’s traction system on rail


Aselsan’s first metro traction system, developed in cooperation with Ankara Metropolitan Municipality, was unveiled in Eurasia Rail.

Last year, Aselsan and Ankara Metropolitan Municipality announced the project for development of locally produced traction system for metro cars.

The new traction system, which has completed the production tests successfully, was unveiled in the Eurasia Fair.

This new traction system will now be used in one of the old metro set of Ankara Metropolitan Municipality. The set with new traction system will soon start road tests.

Aselsan is also working on signalization and control systems for metro lines.
