Alstom has secured orders worth EUR340 million to rehabilitate and maintain part of EDF’s nuclear fleet in France. Under the terms and conditions of the contracts, Alstom will supply stators for 900 MW and 1300 MW generators, rotors for 900 MW generators and lines of rotors for 900 MW steam turbines.

AlstoM has designed and manufactured all the conventional islands installed in France’s nuclear power plants today, all owned and run by EDF and representing 64% of the country’s installed base or 86% of France’s total energy consumption. The two companies work closely together on the regular maintenance and upgrades of the equipment. This contract is part of EDF’s strategy to renovate its nuclear fleet and follows the framework agreement signed by Alstom with EDF in 2008 to renovate the generators in EDF’s nuclear power plants.
