Egemer has proposed a 1,200 MW coal plant in Hatay province. The power station was one of several proposed plants in the region. In response, local groups filed a lawsuit challenging the plants. In October 2015, the production licenses for several plants were cancelled due to their cumulative health and environmental impacts, including Mert. As of December 2019 there has been no further progress and the project appears to be cancelled.
