  Corporation for Larger Access to China’s Gas Turbine Market

Business Wire

LEVALLOIS-PERRET, France -- June 27, 2013

Regulatory News:

Alstom (Paris:ALO) has signed a long term agreement to license its GT13E2 gas
turbine for manufacture, assembly and sales in China through the Harbin
Turbine Corporation (HTC). By working in partnership with a leading power
generation equipment supplier in China’s power market– one of the largest and
fastest growing in the world – Alstom gains better access to supply its GT13E2
E-class turbine to China.

The cooperation with HTC will also involve the establishment of a service
joint venture to address the aftermarket needs of Chinese GT13E2 customers.
HTC will manufacture and assemble the GT13E2 gas turbine in China with Alstom
continuing to supply some critical components.

Whilst giving Alstom improved access to the Chinese market, the agreement
provides HTC and its customers with the industry leading GT13E2 turbine that
offers the best efficiency currently available in the E-class.

“With this long term agreement we see two strong companies coming together to
meet the needs and the challenges of a growing gas turbine market,” said Mark
Coxon, Senior Vice President for Alstom's Gas Business. He added: “Both Alstom
and Harbin bring vital qualities and expertise to the table, and together they
will make the GT13E2 – with its leading performance in its market segment – an
indispensable part of our Chinese customers’ generation portfolio.”

The deal cements a relationship with Harbin which in May 2012 saw a contract
award for a GT13E2 turbine and generator for the Shenzhen Nantian combined
cycle power plant. Further contracts were signed in December 2012 and March
2013 for two GT13E2 sets each for the Tongxiang and Suzhou plants.

“This cooperation and the establishment of a service joint venture will
benefit Alstom, HTC and our Chinese customers,” summarised Hans-Peter Meer,
Senior Vice President of Alstom Thermal Services. “Through the service JV,
Alstom and HTC are demonstrating their commitment to our customers by building
substantial capabilities and expertise inside China”, he added.
