DETES 1 power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Turkey and coal.|
DETES 1 power station is a proposed 160-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Zonguldak province, Turkey.
The map below shows the location of Çatalağzı district, the approximate location where the plant would be built in Zonguldak province.
Background on Plant
Demir Madencilik Petrol Products plans to build a 160 MW domestic coal-fired DETES-1 Integrated Thermal Power Plant in Zonguldak. The EIA is underway. A meeting to review the plant's plan for coal ash storage and discharge was scheduled for October 2017.
A leading environmental engineer claims cancer causing airborne particles (PM10) already exceed WHO limits due to existing local coal plants, and that ash storage would cause significant air and sea pollution.
As of June 2021 there has been no further progress on the plant, and it appears to be shelved.
