In July 2007, construction conglomerate Enka applied to Turkey's Energy Market Regulatory Authority for permission to build an 800-MW coal-fired power plant in the Aliağa district of İzmir province.[1] The permit was approved in March 2008, but since then Enka has faced local protests about the plant's environmental impacts: with substantial pollution from existing industrial operations in the area, residents protested the plant's impacts on tourism, as well as on the local ecosystem and species such as the Mediterranean monk seal.[2]

In its 2012 Annual Report Enka states that "studies are underway for the receipt of other permits."[3][4]

However, the proposal by Enka has since been abandoned. Instead, Meles Elektrik Uretim AS has proposed for a new license at the same location, the Deniz power station.[5][6]
