TransAlta fully retires all the units of its Wabamun power plant
CALGARY, Alberta (April 1, 2010) – TransAlta Corporation (TSX:TA; NYSE:TAC) today announced that after 54 years reliably providing power for Albertans, it has fully retired all the units of its Wabamun power plant.
In 2002, after extensive evaluation and consultation, TransAlta announced the phased shut-down of the four-unit power station. On March 31, 2010, the last operating unit ended commercial operation. Over the next several years TransAlta will complete the Wabamun remediation and reclamation work as approved by the Government of Alberta.
