With 50 years of history in construction projects, Ascioglu Construction is well known for its prestigious projects that give users the utmost quality of life, combining the latest technologies with comfort and contemporary style. Having nine Cummins generator sets in operation already at other sites, the company is again relying on Cummins for their new mixed-use project, Selenium Retro. Cummins Turkey provided two C1675D5 generator sets together with synchronization panel and fuel tank, for emergency standby power to avoid interruption of the utility. Cummins Turkey also performed site analysis, full mechanical installation and commissioning.
Selenium Retro will be built on 47,000 m2 in Atakoy, Istanbul, close to the marina and airport and with good access to public transportation. It will include a horizontal unit between the north and south blocks each with 18 stories of residences and offices. The horizontal unit will feature an indoor social event space and an outdoor swimming pool with a sunbathing terrace, each 1,000 m2, while the side overlooking the street will have commercial areas.
Along with their previous experience, the customer continues to rely on Cummins for this project due to the strong relationship with Cummins Turkey and the team’s ability to provide technical support and a turnkey solution with quick response and delivery time.
