The Success of Turkish Engineers

RMK Marine has realized a significant organizational structure in line with the long term defense industry objectives, strategy and mission of the Turkish Undersecretariat for Defense Industry. The project which has been underway since 2008, currently employs 28 managers, 124 engineers, 58 technicians, 28 operators, 53 office personnel and 329 workers. A total of 2 million man/hour labor has been completed in the project until today. 6,000 units of electric cables, a total of 150 km cable length as well as 30 kilometers of piping with various diameters have been installed in each a vessel. In addition, nationally developed combat management and electronic sensor – weapon systems have also been successfully integrated in the Project and obtained the full score in implemented tests.

Among the 4 vessels constructed successfully by Turkish engineers, vessels TCSG Dost, TCSG Güven and TCSG Umut were launched within the past year, and TCSG Yasam will also be launched in the upcoming days. The vessels will be delivered within 2012. These vessels with 88,6 m length, 12 m width and 1700 tons of displacement weight fall under “corvette class” vessel family in terms of dimensions and capacities. RMK Marine executes the platform integration of weapons and electronic systems for vessels within its shipyard.

In 2000 RMK Marine had also successfully built and delivered two naval logistics vessels to the Turkish Naval Forces, namely TCG Alb. Hakki Burak and TCG Yzb. Ihsan Tolunay with 2100 DWT capacity. RMK Marine is currently also tendering for Landing Platform Dock Project, which is in clarification phase nowadays, to be procured by SSM.
