Turkey's Ultra Super Critical Pulverized Coal Plant

CENAL Elektrik Üretim A.Ş., 50% of which is owned by Cengiz Holding A.Ş. and another 50% by Alarko Holding A.Ş., was established on 11.05.2011 for construction and operation of “CENAL Power Plant Fueled by Imported Coal with a Port, Ash Land Fill Site and Deep Sea Discharge Project” with an installed capacity of 1320 MWe (2X660 MWe) / 1380 MWm / 2926 MWt in Çanakkale’s Biga district, Karabiga town, Kadıoğlu on a space of 454,518 m² on parcel 6759 (formerly 5229 and 5230).

For this project, the “Environmental Impact Assessment Report” was issued by the Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning with the number 2506 on 09.05.2012 and “Production License” was issued by the Energy Market Regulatory Authority with the number EÜ/4315-42/02574 on 20.03.2013.

The plant was designed for operating 7500 hours a year and a gross annual power production of 9,900,000 MWh. The plant will make significant contributions in meeting the increasing energy demand of Turkey. Reliable and high-quality energy will attract foreign investments to Turkey, help the country’s industries develop, create new jobs in the private sector and help increase the national income.
