Alstom has won a £287m deal to overhaul and maintain part of EDF’s nuclear power stations in France.
The French company has designed and manufactured many of the components installed in the country’s nuclear plants, which are all owned and run by EDF. The contract is part of EDF’s strategy to renovate its nuclear fleet.
“These orders secured with EDF demonstrate EDF’s ongoing confidence in Alstom’s flagship product and unbeatable technology in the field of nuclear,” said Alstom Power president Philippe Joubert.
“As a world leader in solutions for new and existing nuclear power plants and the world’s most reputed equipment provider, Alstom is able to fully design, engineer and manufacture the entire conventional island for all types of civil reactors.”
Alstom is a global player in the power generation, transmission and rail infrastructure. The company provides services for the hydro, nuclear, gas, coal and wind industries, employs 95,000 people in more than 70 countries and this year had sales of over £19.5bn.
