Galataport Istanbul, as one of the most important destination projects in the world, takes its place on the Bosphorus with its 1.2 km long coastline for which an investment of 1.7 billion dollars has been made.
This historical port, which is a source of inspiration for similar projects around the world, is Istanbul's gateway to the world from the sea. In addition, Galataport Istanbul hosts a terminal that is a pioneer in the world and is built underground with a special cover system.
Galataport Istanbul Cruise Port hosts cruise ships visiting Istanbul as the main port and transit voyage. In this port, there is a cover system designed for the first time in the world. Based on this cover system, an underground terminal of 29 thousand m2 was put into service. When there are no ships in the port, the entire above-ground area of the area is offered to the public, thanks to a cover system that separates the customs area and the security (ISPS) area. Steel cover systems revolve 90 degrees. There are 176 sets of cover systems in total in the entire project.
A total of 343 Hydraulic Rotary Actuators are used and all of the actuators are produced by HKTM Group.
