Speaking about the projects and platforms designed and produced by ARES, ARES Shipyard CEO Utku Alanç said:

“With the design and platforms we have built, in addition to the added value we have provided in the defense industry for both our security forces and our friends and allies, our pride and happiness in supporting the natural gas exploration activities that have gained momentum in recent years with the national energy slogan is indescribable. One of the most important pillars of economic independence is undoubtedly national energy alongside the national defense industry. We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to Turkish Petroleum Corporation for their solution-oriented and collaborative approach in identifying the need, concept design and contract negotiations.”
