Coal and Mining

Coal and Mining

TransAlta owns coal-fired generating plants that deliver reliable, low-cost baseload power to our customers. Working in the coal and mining group means coming up with innovative solutions to ensure both environmental progress and economic sustainability. TransAlta owns and operates Keephills 3, a coal facility that uses new technology to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, compared to the older plants, extending the life of our coal operations while reducing our environmental footprint. Once we close down a mine, our reclamation team works to restore the area to equal or better than the land prior to mining use.

TransAlta owns and operates Highvale mine, an open pit coal mine that supplies fuel to our power plants. For information about mining career opportunities visit: www.sunhills.ca/careers.
