Ağan power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Turkey and coal.|
Ağan power station was a proposed 1,580-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Çanakkale province, Turkey.
The map below shows the location of Biga, the approximate location where the plant would be built in Çanakkale province.
Background on Plant
In 2016 Doğanlar Holding submitted an EIA for a 1,540 MW coal plant in Biga. The plant would use imported coal. The prelicence (ÖN/5763-6/03334 issued under the name DD Elektrik)was set to expire on September 2018. The pre-license database of EMRA had no information regarding this plant.
In April 2018, a lawsuit filed by several environmental groups resulted in the Council of State nullifying the positive EIA for the project. A new positive EIA was submitted in July 2018 for a plant consisting of two 790-MW units. However, the second EIA was also nullified after local activist groups contested it at the Çanakkale Administrative Court.
As of June 2021 the project's sponsor had cancelled its own pre-license, according to CAN Europe. The project is cancelled.
