This marked the 14th major deal secured from Turkey. Hyundai Rotem said that it had competed with rivals from China and Europe in clinching the business there.
"Thanks to the business project in Turkey, we expect to gain a stronger foothold in future bidding processes," a Hyundai Rotem official said.
With the latest deal, Hyundai Rotem's cumulative contracts secured this year have topped 1 trillion won. In January, it won a 530 billion won ($460.9 million) deal to build a subway system in the Philippines followed by a 187 billion won maintenance contract in New Zealand. ■
