Background on Plant
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.
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.
According to Aksa's 2014 annual report, the power station was completed in 2013.
