Its production, employment and exports are increasing every year, İzmir Free Zone (İZBAŞ), which hosts the biggest wind turbine blade factory in Europe, freeway access problem waiting for urgent solution.
Izmir ring road, which is 16 kilometers away single lane road extending to Seyrek Junction, while witnessing heavy vehicle traffic during the day, Giant wind turbine blades produced in İZBAŞ it also provides transportation to İzmir and Aliağa ports it's causing trouble.
EUROPE'S BİGGEST WING FACTORY IS IN İZBAŞ
Eyüp Sevimli, Chairman of the Board of İZBAŞ, produced by TPI Composites and wings exceeding 80 meters in length, for the solution of the problem they experience in transportation to the freeway. Despite repeatedly calling the authorities to duty, that so far they have not received any results.
A road used as one lane departure and one lane arrival students studying not only at İZBAŞ, but also at Bakırçay University, drawing attention to the fact that citizens residing in Seyrek and Maltepe also use it, Sevimli said, “In addition to our more than 5 thousand employees, all shipments of our manufacturing factories is done this way. Although we have repeatedly explained and reported this problem to central and local governments, we couldn't find a solution." said.
LENGTH OF THE WINGS WILL EXTEND FROM 80 METERS TO 120 METERS
On one and a half million square meters of land, which they see as an expansion area, reminding Sevimli, that they will build the second İZBAŞ in a few years, with the employment of more than 10 thousand employees in İZBAŞ, noted that the current road will completely move away from meeting the needs.
In the wind industry parallel to the development pointing out that the lengths of turbine blades are increasing every year, Sevimli made the following assessment:
“On the land that is our expansion area companies to invest mainly renewable and will consist of companies producing equipment for the clean energy sector. These productions such as turbine blade, tower, rotor, nacelle, generator there will be large-scale productions in a few years when production starts for offshore wind power plants, the length of these wings will reach from 80 meters to 120 meters. Then the problem will become even more intractable. Having managed to make all these investments, we don't want to cross the ocean and drown in a stream. The scene is really not befitting our country.”
