Due to the interest in the high-speed train and the citizens' demands, the number of high-speed train services increased from 44 to 56 as of 10 September. Prof. Dr. Mustafa Karasahin made statements within the scope of the 23-29 September Rail Safety Week. He also indicated the most significant feature of railway transportation is the use of zero-emission electrical energy, adding that it contributes to sustainability.
Upon the request of the citizens, the number of high-speed train services was increased from 44 to 56 as of 10 September. Adil Karaismailoglu, Minister of Transport and Infrastructure, announced that on September 10, when the high-speed train service capacity increase was put into use, the passenger transport record was broken with 31 thousand 651 passengers per day. Mustafa Karasahin from Istanbul Gelisim University (IGU) Engineering and Architecture Faculty Civil Engineering Department, who made a statement within the scope of the 23-29 September Rail Safety Week, also remarked that railway vehicles are environmentally friendly and zero emission electrical energy is used.
“IF ALL ELECTRICAL ENERGY IS PRODUCED FROM RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES, THE GREENHOUSE GAS EFFECT WILL BE MINIMUM”
Along with the development of high-speed train management in Turkey, railways have gained an important market in passenger transportation. The development of high-speed train capacity has increased both the transportation between cities and the number of tourists. Sustainability was contributed by increasing the number of high-speed trains, which have significant advantages in terms of environmental pollution and energy saving. The most crucial feature of railway transportation is the use of zero-emission electrical energy. Prof. Dr. Mustafa Karasahin also added the following:
“If the electricity used in railway vehicles is produced entirely from renewable energy sources, the greenhouse gas effect of high-speed train vehicles is at the zero level. Considering that the use of electric energy in road vehicles has just come to the fore, it is easy to comprehend how eco-friendly railway vehicles are. The use of renewable energy sources in the electrical energy produced in our country is 35%. The remaining electricity is produced with natural gas and coal. In conclusion, if all of the electrical energy is produced from renewable energy sources, the greenhouse gas effect of high-speed train vehicles will be minimized.’’
