TransAlta to build wind power project in Alberta  

Power company TransAlta Corp. plans to spend $115 million to build and operate the 66-megawatt Blue Trail wind power project in southern Alberta.

The 22-turbine wind farm planned near Fort Macleod is expected to produce provide an average of 195,000 megawatt hours per year, enough electricity for about 29,000 homes, the company said Wednesday in a release.

“This project will be ready to be commissioned by December 2009, which will help alleviate some of the supply concerns in our home market,” president and CEO Steve Snyder.

Last year, TransAlta announced it would spend $170 million to build the 96-megawatt Kent Hills wind project in New Brunswick, expected to go on line in the last quarter of this year.

Shares in TransAlta were up 15 cents at $33.69 in morning trading at the Toronto Stock Exchange.
