TransAlta plans $135 million wind project in Alberta

ARDENVILLE, ALTA.

TransAlta has announced plans to design, build and operate a 72 MW wind power project in southern Alberta. The capital cost of the project is estimated at $135 million. Construction is planned to commence in the first quarter of 2010 and commercial operation is expected to begin by early 2011.

Located approximately eight kilometres south of Fort Macleod, Alta., the Ardenville wind farm will incorporate 23 three-megawatt wind turbines making up 69 MW plus the acquisition of an existing operating 3 MW machine. Once the full 72 MW are in production, the wind farm will provide an annual average of 228,000 megawatt hours per year — enough electricity to meet the needs of approximately 28,000 homes.
