Successful participation at Europort Istanbul

Successful participation at Europort Istanbul

The Europort Istanbul, a leading maritime exhibition of the Turkish Maritime Sector, was held from 11 – 14 March, 2015 in Istanbul, Turkey. Over 200 exhibitors from 30 countries showed their latest technologies, components and systems for the Shipbuilding and Maritime Industry.

The Turkish Maritime Industry has a history of over 600 years and belongs to the world’s largest shipbuilding and shipping nations. Since 2005, the Turkish owned merchant fleet increased 40% to 2,237 vessels by January 2013, this being 6.6% of the world fleet. A large part of this fleet is outdated and needs to be replaced in the near future.

Wouter Witzel participated in a stand of our Turkish agent D.O.P. Ltd and presented different product lines and our latest innovation: the Econaxe. A new product range of double eccentric high performance butterfly valves. In the Turkish Shipbuilding Industry Wouter Witzel acquired a great market share with a lot of opportunities for the Econaxe. This fair offered the opportunity to inform new and existing customers in detail about the features of the Econaxe. We can look back at four successfull trade fair days. New potential customers visited our stand and we have met various international relations.
