In October 2014, Astoria İç ve Dış Ticaret A.Ş. (apparently a shell company) applied for environmental permits to build a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 1,320 MW in Adana Province. The project would cost about 2 billion lira, or about $760 million. Astoria hopes to begin construction in 2017, and complete the plant in 2021.[1][2] An environmental permitting meeting was held in January 2015, at which local residents argued against the project, stating that they already had enough pollution from existing coal plants in the area. Residents also protested the siting of the plant at the location of an historical canal that provided water to the ancient city of Aigeai.[3]

As of June 2019 there is no license application for the plant, and it appears to be cancelled.
