|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Turkey and coal.|
Saray Tekirdağ power station is a proposed 300-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Tekirdağ province, Turkey.
The map below shows the location of Saray district, the location where the plant would be built in Tekirdağ province.
Background on Plant
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 (which is apparently 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 cancelled.
