Alterra Power Announces Favorable Arbitration Results for Icelandic Subsidiary

PR Newswire

VANCOUVER, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - Alterra Power Corp. (TSX: AXY) is pleased to report that its 66%-owned subsidiary HS Orka hf ("HS Orka") has received positive results from the arbitration concerning the validity of a power purchase agreement between HS Orka and Norðurál Helguvík ehf ("Norðurál").

The arbitration panel determined that the power purchase agreement has lapsed due to certain circumstances, and therefore is at an end. The panel further determined that the ending of the contract was not due to any fault on the part of HS Orka, and that all counterclaims advanced by Norðurál in the arbitration have been denied.

Ásgeir Margeirsson, CEO of HS Orka, said, "We are pleased to have this longstanding issue behind us. This award will enable us to freely pursue new contractual opportunities in Iceland as new power becomes available to us."
