In the world of power generation, one in four light bulbs worldwide is powered by electricity generated through Alstom-made equipment (turbines, alternators, boilers, combined-cycle power plants…)
The company is the world leader in hydroelectric equipment (with references such as the Itaïpu dam in Brazil and the Three Gorges in China), combined-cycle electric power plants, energy production services and environmental control systems. Alstom works with all energy forms (hydraulic, fuel-oil, gas, coal and lignite, nuclear) and is a leader in environmental protection (reduction of CO2 emissions, reduction of nitrogen oxide emissions..)
Alstom will provide the conventional island for the future EPR nuclear power plant in France. The Group is also developing CO2 capture processes that could lead to commercial scale by 2011.
