Wind and Solar Electrical Engineering Intern
Based in TransAlta’s Pincher Creek, Alberta Office and reporting to the Plant Electrical Engineer – Wind and Solar Operations, the student will work closely with the wind and solar electrical engineer and electrical engineering technologists to plan and implement engineering scope for power generation electrical and controls projects. The role will also involve electrical engineering operational support of wind generating plant equipment such as substations, turbines, overground and overhead collector systems, SCADA systems, control systems, switchgear, protective relays and transformers, and will offer a blend of office time as well as time in the field.
TransAlta has 21 wind farms, including 907 wind turbines with the capacity to generate 1,419 megawatts (MW) of wind power — this is the equivalent of powering more than one million homes. Wind is now 15 per cent of TransAlta’s total generating capacity. We are continuing to expand our fleet with new projects in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Alberta. In Southern Alberta, we have wind operations close to Waterton National Park, Glacier National Park and Castle Provincial Park as well as other locations in Alberta, Quebec, New Brunswick, Ontario and Wyoming.
