LEVALLOIS-PERRET, France -- October 7, 2013

Regulatory News:

Alstom (Paris:ALO) was awarded two Long Term Service Agreements (LTSA) for
three natural gas fired power plants in the US and Canada. The first is a LTSA
contract^1 for EquiPower’s, Milford combined cycle power station in
Connecticut, USA. The group was also chosen to execute a LTSA contract^2 with
TransAlta in Canada for their Sarnia Cogeneration Power Plant in Ontario and
Poplar Creek Cogeneration Power Plant in Alberta. Both TransAlta plants
operate Alstom built GT11N2 gas turbines while EquiPower uses Alstom’s GT24

The scope of both contracts includes parts replacement, reconditioning
services, outage management, labour and on-site support staff, and optional
gas turbine upgrades to increase performance and reduce maintenance costs by
extending time between inspections. Execution of these projects will be
managed collaboratively by Alstom’s teams in Richmond in Virginia; Jupiter in
Florida; Calgary in Canada and Baden in Switzerland.

“Every power plant is different, and these recent contracts underscore the
importance of shaping our services to meet the individual needs of our
customers. That starts with identifying operating challenges at each facility
and determining how best to prepare them for future power generation market
dynamics,” said Michael Rechsteiner, Senior Vice President of Alstom’s Thermal
Services business. “Abundant, unconventional natural gas is reshaping the
energy landscape. It is evident that LTSA’s are helping operators maintain
competitive advantage in this changing market.”

In 2013, Alstom achieved a major milestone by securing power plant service,
support and upgrade contracts in North America with a combined value of
approximately $1.2billion USD (€900 million). These projects signify the push
underway in the U.S. and Canadian markets to boost the reliability,
efficiency, sustainability and overall performance of existing power plants
while lowering components lifecycle costs.
