Unfortunately, dozens of boiler explosions occur every year in our country, causing an average of 10 people to die and millions of Usd in material damage.
So why can't boiler accidents be prevented?
There are three general reasons for boiler explosions:
1- Operating the devices in boiler rooms that do not comply with the standards
2- The boiler operators have not been well trained and were not competent enough.
3- Lack of periodic maintenance and inspection of boilers
As KBSB, we established the Boiler Operator training and MYK approved examination and certification center in cooperation with Gedik University in order to prevent Boiler Explosions, which is the most significant issue we are working on, and we are launching it very soon.
In addition, we revised the TS 2025 Steam Boilers Operation Inspection and Maintenance General Rules standard in accordance with today's conditions and technology and submitted it to the approval of TSE.
We also met with the Ministry of Family, Labor and Social Services about the operation, maintenance and inspection of steam boilers in accordance with the revised TS 2025.
It is possible to completely eliminate boiler explosions that have not been encountered in Europe for many years. We hope we will succeed as soon as possible.
