788 - YHT - Onur

Local partners may come up empty


The details about local partners of 96-HST-sets-tender also unveiled.

Many HST manufacturers had chosen their local partners in Turkey considering the local production critearia.

However, the tender terms may nullify all the preparation. Companies should give their offers by themselves, no consortium is allowed.

On the other hand, there are tough terms like building a facilty in given address, production of most of the sets in this facility, 53% localization. All these may force the winner to cooperate with local companies.

Tülomasaş is a natural partner of this project and may handle all issues in Turkey and remove the need of a local partner.
