Background on Plant

In 2011, Chinese company Zhejiang Provincial Energy Group and Turkish coal mining company Polat Madencilik applied to Turkey's Energy Market Regulatory Authority (EPDK) to build coal mining and coal-fired power plant operations in the Kınık district of Turkey's İzmir province. The two companies created the partnership Polyak Eynez Enerji for purposes of the project, and announced the project in September, stating that the project would be completed by 2016.[1][2]

The environmental public consultation process for the plant began in 2013.[3]

In 2014 it was reported that Polyak Eynez was planning to operate a colliery in Elmadere by 2017 and construct a power station in Değirmencieli by 2019.[4]

In late 2017 it was reported that Polyak Eynez (now part owned by FİBA Group) would be investing 1 billion USD with the mine due 2018 and the 700 MW power plant 2021.[5]
