Saltukova power station is a proposed 350-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Zonguldak province, Turkey.

Location

The map below shows the location of Saltukova village, the approximate location where the plant would be built in Çaycuma district, Zonguldak province.

It is unclear what, if any, relationship this project has with the nearby Filyos power station project, or the much larger ZETES power station project.

Background on Plant

Protests shut down a community hearing for the Saltukova power station in Saltukova on Feb. 7, 2013.[1]

In February 2013, Çebi Metal (a subsidiary of Kaptan Şirketler Group) began the environmental hearing process to build a 350-MW coal-fired power plant near Zonguldak's Saltukova village.[2]

The first permitting meeting, on February 7, 2013, was met with significant protests, with local residents and environmental groups filling the hall despite a strong police presence; the meeting ended after protesters prevented the planned discussion from being held.[3][1]

As of June 2015 the EIA has not been submitted and the project appears to be abandoned.[4]
