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.[1][2] The prelicence (ÖN/5763-6/03334 issued under the name DD Elektrik)was set to expire on September 2018.[3] 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.[4] A new positive EIA was submitted in July 2018 for a plant consisting of two 790-MW units.[5] However, the second EIA was also nullified after local activist groups contested it at the Çanakkale Administrative Court.[6]

As of June 2021 the project's sponsor had cancelled its own pre-license, according to CAN Europe.[7] The project is cancelled.
