29.3.2004: Meldung: Alstom S.A.: Orders for over €230 million
March 29, 2004
Alstom has won two separate orders to supply air pollution control systems for power plants in France with a combined order value in excess of € 230 million. The orders have been awarded by Electricité de France (EDF) and LA SNET, an independent power producer owned by Endesa, EDF and Charbonnages de France. With these recent orders Alstom is confirmed as the world" s leading supplier of emissions reduction technology in the very dynamic power generation and industrial markets, as well as a leading global contributor to clean thermal power production.
The installation of the air pollution control systems will ensure the reduction of nitrogen oxides and sulphur oxides emissions to a level significantly lower than required by the recently adopted European and French regulations.
The order from EDF is worth approximately € 100 million for the supply of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) units for the reduction of nitrogen oxides at power stations located in Le Havre (Normandy) and Cordemais (Pays de la Loire).
The order from LA SNET is valued at around € 130 million and will be carried out in consortium with GTM, responsible for the civil works. Alstom will deliver one SCR unit and one Flue Gas Desulphurisation unit to each of the 600 MW power stations located in Carling (Lorraine), and in Gardanne (Provence).
The construction of these units will start in early 2005, and are scheduled to be in operation by January 2008.
Philippe Joubert, President of Alstom"s Power Environment and Power Turbo-Systems Sectors comments, "We, at Alstom Power Environment, are extremely proud to be the leader of an activity which is closely associated with environmentally conscious Companies such as EDF and LA SNET. These two new awards consolidate Alstom"s leadership position in the growing market of environmental controls" .
