The agreement with Alstom relates to ten major maintenance projects over the next three years at TransAlta’s Keephills and Sundance plants. It also expands Alstom’s current scope of work to service critical power assets, including boilers, steam turbines, generators and other plant equipment. Alstom will be accountable for providing its services on budget and on time with a guarantee on performance.

“Alstom is an international industry leader and we already partner with them in other key areas of TransAlta’s business,” said Wayne Collins, executive vice-president, Coal and Mining Operations at TransAlta. “We look forward to working closely with Alstom to deliver this work program and to see the benefits materialize.”

The new arrangement is expected to deliver an average 15 per cent cost reduction per turnaround and shorter turnaround times for major maintenance work - resulting in estimated direct cost savings of $34 million over the full term of the agreement, which in turn contributes to improvement of TransAlta’s overall financial performance. “Cost management and disciplined operations are all part of keeping Alberta’s electricity grid and our customers supplied with reliable cost-effective power,” said Collins.

Feilim Coyle, vice-president, Thermal Services North America at Alstom, said: “Alstom is proud to have been selected by TransAlta to provide maintenance planning and services for its thermal power generation fleet in central Alberta. This long-term service agreement demonstrates Alstom’s capabilities to tailor equipment service activities based on the comprehensive understanding of TransAlta’s assets and operational requirements.”

TransAlta has been providing reliable power to Albertans for over 100 years. TransAlta is Canada’s largest publicly traded power generator with a diverse mix of fuel sources that include wind, hydro, natural gas and coal. Alberta is an important market for TransAlta where it has 35 facilities totaling over 5,200 MW of net generating capacity.

Alstom has a long history as a service provider on similar power plants in North America and around the world. Alstom was the prime contractor in TransAlta’s successful return to service TransAlta’s Sundance A power plant in 2013.
