Project-level coal details

  • Coal source(s): imported


The plant has been proposed by Hakan Enerji, a subsidiary of Hakan Madencilik ve Elektrik Üretim Sanayi Ticaret A.S. The company applied for environmental licensing in August 2010.[1]

On its website the company states that it has applied to the Turkish Energy Market Regulatory Authority for a power generation license for the proposed plant. The company describes the plant as a 100MW plant which would "make use of the coal to be imported from Kemerova, Russian Federation, featuring high calorific value (6,000 kcal/kg min) with low sulfur (0.9% max) and ash (14% max) contents."[2]

The project has been licensed,[3] but the license has been challenged by a lawsuit. Hakan subsidiary Tunas Enerji Elektrik Uretim AS has sought and received a separate license for a 100 MW coal-fired power station at the same site, the Tunas power station. As of May 2016, it appears to Tunas proposal is moving forward and Hakan has been cancelled.[4]
