Kayseri Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Dr. Memduh Büyükkılıç made examinations in the Erciyes geothermal drilling area within the scope of the studies carried out to make Mount Erciyes known for thermal tourism and to evaluate this potential. In Erciyes, where hot water can be reached at 385 meters, in the light of technical data, the new target is determined as 420 meters and it is planned to reach hot water at a higher temperature and higher flow rate.

While hot water drilling works continue uninterruptedly by the Metropolitan Municipality to increase the potential of Erciyes and make it a center of attraction that can be used for 12 months, Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Dr. Memduh Büyükkılıç inspected the work carried out in this context on site.

Büyükkılıç, who received information about the latest situation from Duran Safrantı, Head of Agricultural Services Department, and the authorities, wished good luck to the personnel working in the region.

In his statement here, Mayor Büyükkılıç said, “Erciyes Ski Center is our pride, it is a world-class center. "In order to crown this, we continue to work diligently on hot water works with an understanding that also provides a glimmer of hope," he said.


Stating that the preliminary data indicate that the studies on thermal water will result positively, Mayor Büyükkılıç said, “We are continuing our work to further clarify and conclude this. I hope this work, which will make the greatest contribution to our Erciyes, will result as we hope. We hope that our hotels will have thermal facilities to provide service in the summer as well. Congratulations on the work done. "We would also like to thank our Korusu company, the pride of Kayseri, for carrying out these works," he said.
