53 CAT® GENERATOR SETS POWER HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION
Featured Product from Caterpillar Electric Power
As one of Turkey’s largest build-operate-transfer highway projects, the construction of the Gebze-?zmir motorway is expected to boost the Turkish economy and environment by significantly reducing travel times between various cities.
NÖMAYG A.O, the main construction contractor, required reliable power to produce the approximately 8.6 million tons of asphalt for the project. It also needed spare power for the Osmangazi suspension bridge, which crosses the ?zmit Bay, as well as enough energy to power and light road junctions, tunnels, service and parking places, security, maintenance complexes, intelligent traffic systems, and toll collection systems. Leveraging its excellent relationship with local Cat® dealer Borusan Cat, NÖMAYG A.O acquired 53 Cat generator sets over the course of the project.
