Environmental Transformation in Thermal Power Plants
EU standards have been approached at Kemerköy and Yeniköy thermal power plants in Muğla. The chimney, boiler and turbine filters of the power plants have been renewed.
Investments aimed at minimizing the environmental impact of thermal power plants are being implemented under the leadership of the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources.
In this context, the boilers and turbines of the Kemerkoy and Yenikoy thermal power plants in Muğla have been renewed, and the chimney filtration processes have been completed. Thus, the power plants were brought into compliance with the standards of the European Union.
Thermal power plants were on the agenda with chimney filters in 2019. As with all power plants throughout the country, environmental criteria determined by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources have been implemented at power plants in Muğla.
2 Percent of the electricity needs are met here
Kemerköy and Yeniköy thermal power plants, which are operated by the private sector in Muğla, meet 2 percent of Turkey's electricity needs. Lignite from the mines in Muğla is used in the power plants.
Mesut Serhat Dinç, General Manager of the Thermal Power Plant, said, "Domestic coal thermal power plants are also very important in terms of energy supply security. Our country is getting rid of importing 1.3 billion cubic meters of natural gas every year with the electricity we produce here in terms of our economy," he said.
At Kemerköy Thermal Power Plant, respectful investments in people and nature are continuing with chimney, boiler and filtration works. thanks to the renovation investment of 270 million euros, the emission values around the power plant have fallen significantly.
Thanks to environmental investments, the domestic lignite resources in Muğla will continue to be brought to the economy.
