TAQA supports Alberta flood disaster relief efforts

posted on 29/06/2013: 1377 views


TAQA, the global energy company based in Abu Dhabi, is contributing CDN100,000 to the Canadian Red Cross relief to support rehabilitation efforts following the most devastating flooding in history in the City of Calgary and the Province of Alberta. TAQA has also launched a campaign to raise further funds among its employees and has pledged to match contributions up to CND 50,000.

Calgary and surrounding areas in Alberta, Canada remain in a state of emergency after heavy rain and melting snow caused heavy flooding. At the peak of the flooding more than 175,000 Albertans were forced out of their homes.

David Cook, Executive Officer and Head of Oil '&' Gas at TAQA, said: "I would like to recognise and thank the City of Calgary and its Emergency Management Agency for their tremendous work, quick response and tireless efforts to the worst flooding in Calgary's history. We are extremely grateful for the dedicated group of first responders, Red Cross, Canadian Forces and the countless volunteers including our own TAQA staff who have given their time to assist those affected. Our thoughts are with those who have been impacted by the devastation throughout the province." The flooding forced authorities to evacuate Calgary's downtown core including the main TAQA office at Jamieson Place. TAQA staff continue to work remotely from home to allow the City of Calgary and its officials to continue their clean-up efforts. TAQA's Calgary office will reopen next week.

Edward LaFehr, President of TAQA North, said: "We appreciate the incredible contributions our employees have made to keep our critical business processes running and their tireless support of our colleagues, their families, friends and strangers during this very difficult time. They have shown the true spirit of Calgary." TAQA employs 900 people in North American and has operations in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Montana, North Dakota, Wyoming and Colorado. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
