What happens if the flames reach the power plant?
Well, the answer to the question of what happens if the fire reaches the thermal power plant is unfortunately quite simple. According to experts, in the Milas district of Muğla, if the Kemerköy Thermal Power Plant, which operates with lignite and is Turkey’s 30th largest power plant, encounters a fire, very serious dangers await the region. If the flames reach the power plant, with the tribunes not being able to handle the heat, A big explosion could occur.
If the fire reaches the Kemerköy Thermal Power Plant and there is an explosion, there is a possibility that the fire will lose its control and spread rapidly. The possibility of loss of life with the explosion It’s also very worrying.
