Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov inspected yesterday the progress of work at the construction of the new TV tower. He toured the premises and the surrounding area and made comments on their equipment and design.
It should be recalled that the facility is being built by Turkish company Polimeks. The main decoration of the new Ashgabat TV tower will be a huge octagonal star of Oguz Khan, covered with stained glass on both sides. The color gamut of stained glass will vary depending on the time of the day.
Established in 1995, Polimeks employs a workforce of nearly 23,000 employees in 5 countries: Turkey, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, China and Libya. The Company is among the top general contractors in Turkey and ranked 102nd of “Top 225 International Contractors of 2009”, published by the Engineering News-Record Magazine.
