TransAlta plans 800 MW Alberta power plant

Calgary, Alberta, November 11, 2010 – TransAlta Corp. will build a gas-fired power plant at its Sundance complex near Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, capable of producing up to 800 MW of electricity.

TransAlta, which runs coal, gas and renewable energy facilities in Canada, the U.S. and Australia, took steps towards regulatory approval for the proposed Sundance 7 plant, filing an interconnection application with the Alberta Electric System Operator. The cost of the plant was not disclosed.

The new plant will replace coal-fired facilities that the Canadian government has ordered phased out to cut the country’s greenhouse gas emissions.
