TransAlta Energy Australia

20+ years… and just getting started

Expanding Our Business Since 1995

TransAlta Energy Australia is building on our 20-year history in the country with significant new investments made over the past few years.

Since 2011, we have acquired the 125 MW Solomon power station, built the 270 km Fortescue River Gas Pipeline with our partner DBP Development Group and completed our 150 MW South Hedland power station, which is now the most efficient combined-cycle power plant in the region.

TransAlta serves large industrial customers in the region and have invested over a billion dollars in Western Australia in assets with stable long-term contracts.

If We Say It, We’ll Do It.

As your trusted energy partners, our team works hands on helping our customers manage your electricity costs, security of supply and environmental footprints. We offer:

  • Customized solutions to meet your electricity needs
  • Flexible contractual arrangements to suit a variety of businesses
  • A proven track record of safe and reliable operations
  • The ability to operate remote islanded generation and networks

We plan to grow and are looking for new opportunities across Australia. Our goal is to be a trusted energy partner, with collaborative and hands-on customized power solutions to fit industrial, commercial and utility energy needs.
