Biga power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Turkey and coal.|
Biga power station is a proposed 1540-megawatt (2 x 770 MW) coal-fired power plant in Çanakkale province, Turkey.
As of December 2019 there have been no developments since at least 2014, and the power station appears to be cancelled.
The map below shows the location of Karabiga, the approximate location where the plant would be built in Çanakkale province.
In 2017, a petition to stop the construction of coal power plants, including the Biga plant, was started on Change.org. The petition argued that the coal plants were damaging the climate, nature, and agriculture. With the petition titled, “Blow to Our Oxygen Tank,” the petition ultimately reached 443 signatures.
