He made statements that draw attention to the business volume of the renovation projects for the boiler and pressure vessels sector:
“Energy supply is among the biggest problems in the world. The way countries produce and use energy is not sustainable. For this reason, on the one hand, our rapidly depleting energy resources, on the other hand, led to the accumulation of greenhouse gases, which cause climate change, in the atmosphere. Considered the largest-scale war in Europe after the Second World War The Russia-Ukraine war also quickly triggered the energy crisis in the world. Due to the sanctions imposed on Russia by the European Union countries, “plans to combat the energy crisis” have started to be implemented in many countries of the world, especially in European countries. These plans also create business opportunities for our industry.
“The Russia-Ukraine war brought new opportunities as well as many troubles“
The boiler and pressure vessels sector, which reached a size of 500 million dollars in 2021, is among the sectors that have strategic importance in the fight against the energy crisis, not only with its size but also with the chain effect it has created on the economy.
The Russia-Ukraine war brought new opportunities as well as many troubles. With the conjuncture brought about by the war, it is possible to increase this business capacity by 100 percent ”.
