Teksan joined the Bauma 2016 exhibition, one of world’s biggest construction industry exhibitions organized in Munich-Germany, with its solutions developed for the construction sector. At the exhibition, which is followed closely by the construction industry, Teksan premiered the “hybrid light tower” which is the latest example of its R&D power. The “hybrid light tower” which was produced by Teksan for the first time in Turkey was the center of attention at Bauma 2016, with the advantages it provides at construction sites with no electricity energy.
3.400 companies from 60 countries showcased their latest products and latest innovations in the sector at Bauma 2016 exhibition. With its vision of becoming a world brand in the area of uninterrupted power supplies, Teksan premiered its products developed using the latest technologies. The company, which is quite assertive in the area of R&D, created repercussions with Turkey’s first “hybrid light tower” which it launched for the first time at Bauma Exhibition.
Teksan Board Member in charge of Sales and Marketing Burak Başeğmezler stated that they follow the developments in the sector closely and said; “We believe that international exhibitions play a key role with regard to our goal of becoming a global brand. And accordingly, we take part in almost all trade events related to our sector. And we’ve been joining Bauma, the biggest exhibition the construction industry since 2007. All our products are developed and produced using 100% local capital and we export them to over 120 countries. But we plan to increase our exports. And I can say that exhibitions like Bauma serve this purpose to a great extent. For instance, the first year we joined the exhibition, we started to export our products to Bolivia and New Zealand.”
Burak Başeğmezler stated that their products are currently used in numerous constructions projects including airport projects in Turkey and abroad and said “We premiered our “hybrid light tower” which we developed using the hybridtechnology which is the latest innovation of our R&D unit, for the first time at Bauma Exhibition. The “hybrid light tower” which is an innovation for Turkey, provides great convenience at construction sites with no power source. The “hybrid light tower” decreases energy consumption by as much as 73% by utilizing renewable energy sources like solar energy and the smart battery management system.The “hybrid light tower” which lowers the normal engine operation time of 7 hours for regular light towers down to 1 hour attracts attention as an environmentally friendly product not only for decreasing carbon footprint as a result of lower energy consumption but also for the low sound emission it provides. The new hybrid system that makes less use of the engine also provides significant savings in terms of repair, maintenance and operational costs and ensures longer usable engine life.”
Burak Başeğmezler also mentioned that they rank 136th in national R&D rankings in Turkey and that this is what differentiates their company from competition.
