Abstract

Lignite coals of Miocene age occur in and around the Çan basin, located in Çanakkale county, north-westernTurkey. Only one coal seam is mineable with an average thickness of 21.32 m. Weighted averages of chemical analysis for the as received coal indicate 22.52% moisture, 29.69% ash, 3.00% total sulphur, and net calorific value 11836 kJ/kg.   The air dried coal has 7.10 % moisture, 35.32% ash, 3.61% total sulphur, and net calorifi c value 14662 kJ./kg.   The total mineable reserve is approximately 73,153,885 tonnes. The Canakkale-Can lignite deposit is currently worked by open-pit mining despite its high sulphur content.  The construction of the first Turkish fluidised-bed thermal powerplant with 210 MW capacity was completed at the end of 2003 in Çan.
