Turkish firm to set-up ginning plants in Turkmenistan
Mar '13
Turkish firm Engin Group has signed a contract with Turkmenpagta (Turkmen Cotton) to build cotton factories in the Mary district of the Caspian state, Turkmen state media reported last week.
Two new factories will be built in the Mary province, according to the agreement inked by Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.
“The contracts will provide for the design and construction of two cotton-seed processing plants with an annual capacity of 40,000 tons each, as well as their engineering support systems in the Altyn Asyr district in the Akhal province and the Sakarchagi District in the Mary region,” the statement said.
A new manufacturing facility will also be built in the northern province of Dashoguz.
The new processing plants will each sit on nearly 40 acres of land. Construction of the plants is expected to begin next month, and should be completed in two years.
The new deal with the Turkish firm is part of Berdimuhamedov’s push to modernize the cotton production industry in the country, which now largely depends on revenues from gas exports. The new plants will improve the quality of cotton seeds used by Turkmen farmers.
