In September 2014, Çalışkan Enerji applied for environmental permits to build a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 1,320 MW in Adana Province. The project would cost about 2 billion lira, or about $760 million. The company hopes to begin construction in 2017, and complete the plant in 2021.[1][2] Public hearings on the Çalışkan Ceyhan EIA were held in January 2015.[3]

As of June 2018, with no further progress in over two years, the project appears to be shelved or abandoned.


In January 2015, local residents held a forum to organize protests against the proposed plant.[4]
