Tekirdağ-Saray coal mine
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Turkey and coal.|
The Tekirdağ-Saray coal mine was a proposed surface mine, operated by Başat Elektrik Üretim, a subsidary of the Taşyapı İnşaat Tahhüt Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş., producing fuel for the Saray Tekirdağ power station, in Tekirdağ province, Turkey.
As of 2014 the project has not moved forward and was likely canceled.

Background on Mine
In August 2006, a TKI auction to build a mine and mine-to-mouth plant at a 129-million-ton lignite field in Eastern Thrace's Tekirdağ province was won by Başat Enerji (a subsidiary of the Taşyapı Group), which planned to build a 300-MW coal-fired plant. The plant was scheduled to go online in 2011.
However, as of 2014 the project has not moved forward and was likely canceled.
