In 2006, the Aksa Akrilik Kimya Sanayii (Aksa Acrylic Chemical Industry) plant, owned by the Akkök Group, began planning to build a 142-MW coal-fired cogeneration plant at the Aksa plant. Construction began in 2009 without local approval, with Aksa expecting to have local approval in hand soon.[4]

Since then, the group Yalova Çevre Platformu (Yalova Environmental Platform) has fought the plant, arguing that the plant's proximity to residential areas and to the North Anatolian Fault made it a poor site.[5][6]

During the opposition, Aksa continued to pursue plans for the plant.[7][8]

According to Aksa's 2014 annual report, the power station was completed in 2013.[9]

In November 2021, Aska discussed the implementation of an Advanced Energy Solutions project that may reduce the Acrylic plant's reliance on coal.[10] The company's January 2022 General Assembly Meeting Report suggested that they were continuing to import coal.[11]

AKSA Akrilik's 2023 Annual Report stated that the company's total megawatt-hours (MWh) of coal consumption increased in 2022 and again in 2023.[12]
