  • Under an ambitious business plan reminiscent of science-fiction movies, three Turkish ships are being repurposed to produce hundreds of millions of face masks during transoceanic sea voyages.
  • The company struggled to meet the demands as the production of 100 million masks takes over two weeks, and shipping to America can take more than a month.
  • When preparations are concluded the first face mask ship will set sail at the end of the month.
