Kireçlik power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Turkey and coal.|
Kireçlik power station is a proposed 1,200-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Zonguldak province, Turkey.
The undated satellite photo below shows the proposed location for the plant, near Bayat village, Kireçlik district, Zonguldak province.
Background on Plant
The project was met with vigorous local protests, led by KDZ.Ereğli Çevre Platformu and Greenpeace, with a great deal of support from local political officials — particularly a boat action in August 2013, which attracted a great deal of media attention.
In 2017 it was reported that the area proposed for the Kireçlik power station had been designated a tourism area, making it unsuitable for coal plants.
As of May 2018, the EIA was no longer listed online, and the project appears to have been cancelled.
