In January 2013, a consortium led by Engie (formerly GDF Suez) applied to build a two-unit, 1,320-MW coal-fired power plant near the village of Gölovası, in Adana province in southern Turkey. The plant is also referred to as Adana ili, Yumurtalık İlçesi, Gölovası, and Ada Enerji Santralı.[1][2][3]

As of October 2015, French public utility company Engie has announced withdrawal from its Ada Coal Power Plant project in Yumurtalik, Turkey, as a result of civil society mobilization in France and Turkey.[4]


In October 2015, it was reported that the Ada Yumurtalik power project in Turkey was fiercely opposed by Turkish civil society because of its potential negative impacts on people’s likelihoods and the local environment. The Friends of the Earth France and Reseau Action Climat France called the company in charge of the Ada Yumurtalik plant, Engie, to immediately stop the project as well as for the French government to help stop the production of the plant.[5]

By October 21, 2015, Engie had cancelled the Ada Yumurtalik plant after protests from local and global environmentalists.[6]
