The company has agreed to sell the Tamar Valley Power Station to the state government of Tasmania for A$100 million in cash after spending A$223 million on construction. The transaction nets out at a A$42 million loss. The company will also take a A$410 million impairment charge against the assets of Alinta.
The utility also announced it has hired UBS AG to conduct a strategic review of the company, it said.

The company reiterated its forecast for 2008 EBITDA of A$330 million to A$340 million.
