Digital cooperation in the energy sector | Economy News

SOCAR Turkey and Turkcell developed a special project for the Aliağa Peninsula as part of their cooperation.

Within the scope of the project, Turkcell will establish a private LTE network with the mobile communication network established exclusively for SOCAR Turkey, by establishing base stations only for SOCAR Turkey’s information technology infrastructure in the Izmir Aliağa Peninsula. The region where SOCAR Turkey has important subsidiaries such as STAR Refinery and Petkim on the Aliağa Peninsula also draws attention with the title of Turkey’s first “Private Industrial Zone”. Making a statement at the press conference held, SOCAR Turkey Digital Transformation and Information Technologies President Hakan Irgıt said, “As Turkey’s largest industrial holding, SOCAR Turkey, we are working to realize firsts. We claim to be the leading company in digital transformation in our industry. Today, we announced the cooperation that excites us and will be a first for our industry. As SOCAR Turkey, we are preparing SOCAR Turkey and Aliağa for 5G with Turkcell’s technology in this project, which we developed in the light of our digital transformation vision and strategic plans. We are taking a very important step in our digital transformation journey.”


According to the news in Hürriyet newspaper; Turkcell Corporate Sales Assistant General Manager Ceyhun Özata said: “Since SOCAR Turkey operates on a 1,453-hectare peninsula in business lines such as refinery, petrochemistry and port management, it wanted to be able to respond to tailor-made digitalization needs for each business unit. SOCAR Turkey will have an infrastructure that can digitize all its activities on the Aliağa Peninsula with Private LTE technology, which we offer thanks to our unique network. We think that the establishment of this infrastructure, which will cover the entire open area, have low latency values, and support internet of things technologies, will set an example for the energy sector.”
