( - The rumor that circulated a week ago was based. The four teams expected to try to get the contract to extend the Athens metro have submitted their bids to Attiko Metro. The contract will be between GEK Terna and Vinci and Siemens, the duo Aktor-Ansaldobreda (Hitachi Rail Italy), the J & P Avax trio, Ghella, Alstom and to finish the Mytilineos-FCC-Archidoron team. The deadline for submission of tenders was 10 August, after three postponements requested by the suitors to the authority in charge of the process. A first selection will take place before the end of the year, with the winners having to submit a more complete dossier, notably at the technical and financial level. This long-term project, which will include 13 kilometers of new lines, is expected to start in 2019 and be completed eight years later. The initial section should see 18 metros. Alstom has already won a contract in the Greek capital with J & P Avax and Ghella in 2012 for the extension of line 3 of the metro.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Minister of Industry, Mine and Trade Mohammad Reza Nematzadeh announced Paris has concluded a contract with Tehran to develop Iran's railway system. "The agreement was signed to make contribution to investment, technology transfer, production and export, and the maximum use of domestic capabilities," Nematzadeh said. He said that it is estimated that 1,000 train cars will be manufactured with the participation of French Alstom company and with regard to their main share in this agreement. "We also desired to export the cars in addition to supplying domestic needs," Nematzadeh said. The Iranian minister said that the joint agreement to manufacture suburban and regional metro trains was signed between Iran's Industrial Development and Renovation Organization (IDRO), Alstom, and Iranian Rail Industries Development Co (IRICO) and the companies have their shares in the agreement respectively 20, 60, and 20 percent. Alstom, a French multinational company, operating worldwide in rail transport markets, is active in the fields of passenger transportation, signaling and locomotives, with products including suburban, regional and metro trains.

( - For the design office AlphaValue, a rapprochement between Siemens and Alstom in transport would have much more meaning than a Siemens-Bombardier marriage. Siemens has in the past shown interest in French, said the analyst, who believes that an operation is possible, on the model Siemens-Gamesa, which would leave Alstom on the stock market. Recent rumors suggested that German and Canadian had progressed on a rapprochement, with a scenario involving two joint ventures, one in rolling stock and the other in signage. But AlphaValue noted that Siemens management was reluctant to discuss the issue, while Bombardier Transport's capital structure seemed inadequate to create joint ventures.

Alstom to test advanced concrete rail track in Germany 2 December 2016 | By Joe Quirke 0 Comments facebook twitter gplus linkedin French engineer Alstom is to trial a rail line made from concrete that it says can be installed more 40% more quickly than conventional track. The company calls its system “non-ballast concrete-slab track”, or NBT, and it says it can be used on conventional or high-speed systems up to a maximum speed of 360km/h. Alstom created the line for projects that required a track with a long lifespan and low maintenance. The construction process is derived from the Appitrack technology, which allows 300m of track to be laid per day. A pilot project is to be tried in German. Alstom worked on the technology with the Department of Engineering at the Technical University of Munich and TÜV Rheinland, which inspected and tested the technology. Alstom notes that the German Railway Federal Authority is “recognised worldwide for its experience in the slab track homologation, which is carried-out over the past 40 years on the German high-speed railway network”.

Alstom Swings to Profit Buoyed by Capital Gains 11/05/2016 5:53am Dow Jones News Alstom (EU:ALO) Intraday Stock Chart Today : Wednesday 11 May 2016 Click Here for more Alstom Charts. By Inti Landauro PARIS--French train and rolling stock maker Alstom SA (ALO.FR) on Wednesday reported a large net profit for its fiscal year 2016 after booking capital gains on assets it sold to General Electric Co. (GE), lifting it from a year-earlier loss. Alstom said it made a net profit for the fiscal year ending March 31 of 3 billion euros ($3.41 billion), compared with a EUR719 million net loss in the same period a year earlier. Most of the profit came from the capital gains Alstom made on the sale of a series of assets to GE, the company's Chief Executive Henri Poupard-Lafarge told reporters. The company had attributed the year-earlier loss to a $772 million settlement with the Department of Justice to resolve corruption cases and the write-down of assets in Russia. Excluding one-time charges and capital gains, Alstom's operating profit during the fiscal year ending in March rose 23% to EUR366 million, up from EUR298 million last year. The maker of TGV bullet trains said it booked a record EUR10.64 billion of orders, up over 6% compared with the previous year. Its backlog rose to EUR30.36 billion at the end of March. Alstom has focused last year in the train business after selling its power equipment division, which represented a little more than 50% of its sales, to its U.S. rival GE. Alstom sold its power equipment making unit to GE for a nominal price of EUR12.4 billion, but will retain minority stakes in part of the business worth EUR2.4 billion. Alstom will then pay GE EUR700 million for its train-signalling business. Alstom transferred EUR3.2 billion of the sale proceeds to its shareholders late last year. -Write to Inti Landauro at (END) Dow Jones Newswires May 11, 2016 01:38 ET (05:38 GMT)

By Inti Landauro PARIS-- The board of French engineering firm Alstom SA (ALO.FR) late Wednesday recommended distributing to shareholders between 3.5 billion and 4 billion euros ($4.36 billion and $4.98 billion) from the proceeds of the sale of most of its power equipment business to larger rival General Electric (GE). According to an agreement signed between both companies earlier his year, General Electric offered to pay EUR12.35 billion for most of Alstom's division that manufactures heavy equipment for power plants. In a statement released Wednesday evening, Alstom's board recommended that the company use two thirds of the proceeds from the sale to clear its balance sheet. The maker of French signature bullet train plans to concentrate on its rolling stock manufacturing business as its power division has suffered over the past few years as a result of stagnant demand from electricity utilities.

By Inti Landauro PARIS--Alstom SA (ALO.FR) Friday said it signed contracts to supply machinery worth 1.25 billion euros ($1.7 billion) in Poland that will give a boost to its ailing power turbine business. The French engineering company, better known for its TGV bullet trains, will equip two units with a capacity of 900 megawatts each to a consortium which is expanding what will become Poland's largest coal-fired power plant. The contract comes two weeks after the Alstom cut its profit targets for the year, citing a slump in sales and new orders at its power turbine business. On Jan. 21, the company cut its operating margin forecast for the fiscal year ending March 31 to "around 7%" and expects it to fall further in the next year. Alstom also said it expects a negative cashflow in the second half of the fiscal year. Orders for thermal power turbines fell 4% to EUR1.56 billion in the three-month period through December. The company said it received many orders to service existing power plants and turbines, but few to equip new plants. Write to Inti Landauro at

Berenberg a réduit de 36,90 à 32 euros son objectif de cours sur Alstom
Alstom Orders Fall 32% on Less Demand for Trains, Power Gear By Francois de Beaupuy - Jul 24, 2013 9:15 AM GMT+0200 ..Facebook Share Tweet LinkedIn Google +1 0 Comments Print QUEUEQ..Alstom SA (ALO), a French maker of power equipment and trains, reported a 32 percent drop in fiscal first-quarter orders as utilities and railways in Europe, Africa and the Middle East slashed spending. Orders in the three months ended June 30 dropped to 4.07 billion euros ($5.38 billion) from 6.03 billion euros a year earlier, the company, based in the Paris suburb of Levallois-Perret, said today. That exceeded the 3.97 billion-euro average of six analyst estimates collected by Bloomberg. "The problem is that trends in its core market such as thermal power, appear, if anything, to be trending to the downside," said Ben Uglow, an analyst at Morgan Stanley. "We are hopeful that the first quarter may mark the low point on orders, but it is too early to tell." Chief Executive Officer Patrick Kron in May slashed his forecast for sales and margins, citing a slowdown in the global economy. The company, which cut jobs in Europe and the U.S. as utilities' demand for power equipment slumped after the 2009 recession, is now shutting some plants that make windmills and power-grid gear. At the same time, it is expanding production lines for trains and turbines in countries such as China, Russia, Brazil and India to tap local demand. Cut Rating "In spite of a difficult commercial environment, tendering remains active, mainly driven by prospects in emerging markets, but the timing of the booking of some large tickets remains, as usual, uncertain," Kron said today. He reiterated his forecast for sales, margins and free cash flow. Alstom shares rose 1.5 percent to 26.10 euros as of 9:05 a.m. in Paris trading, valuing the company at 8.1 billion euros. The stock had dropped 15 percent this year before today. Moody's Investors Service cut Alstom's long-term credit rating by one level in June to Baa3, the lowest investment grade. Standard & Poor's has said it may make a similar move, giving Alstom's BBB rating a negative outlook. "The market environment remains challenging but solid activity in the services business, which account for 30 percent of the group's sales and half of its profit, should help the group weather the downturn," said Gael de Bray, an analyst at Societe Generale in Paris. Quarterly sales fell 4 percent to 4.58 billion euros. The drop in first-quarter revenue in Alstom's transport and thermal power divisions "reflects the execution profile of the backlog," the company said. The total backlog of 51 billion euros at the end of June represents 31 months of sales, it added. Thermal Power Orders for thermal-power equipment such as turbines fell 38 percent in the first quarter to 1.55 billion euros, with no large order outside services, Alstom said. Sales contracts for renewable power equipment more than doubled from a low point. Grid orders fell 14 percent in the April-June period from a year earlier, and orders at the transport division amounted to 1.1 billion euros, down 51 percent from a year earlier, when several big contracts were booked, Alstom said. The French company ranks behind General Electric Co. (GE) and Munich-based Siemens AG in the power-equipment industry. It also competes with Siemens and Montreal-based Bombardier Inc. (BBD/B) on train and metro cars, and with Siemens and ABB Ltd. (ABBN) in power-transmission markets. Revenue is still predicted to "grow organically at a low single-digit" rate, and the operating margin will remain stable in the 12 months through March 2014 before gradually rising over the next two to three years to about 8 percent of sales, Alstom said. Free cash flow should be positive year after year over this period, Alstom also reiterated.

08:56 Alstom's Power-Grid Sales to Struggle as Clients Defer Contracts By Francois de Beaupuy - Mar 15, 2013 12:01 AM GMT+0100 ..Facebook Share LinkedIn Google +1 0 Comments Print QUEUEQ..Alstom SA (ALO), the French maker of turbines and trains, will struggle to lift revenue at its power- transmission unit this year as some customers defer projects and turn to low-cost Asian competitors. "We're expecting 2013 to continue to be tight in terms of transforming the order book into sales," Gregoire Poux- Guillaume, the head of Alstom's power-transmission division, said in an interview. A rebound in revenue, hurt in recent quarters by a jump in unpaid work in India, will come at a later stage, he said. Chinese and Korean manufacturers including Hyundai Heavy Industries and Hyosung Corp. (004800) have increased capacity, and Alstom is shutting plants, switching to cheaper designs and streamlining its supplier base to adapt. The French company is budgeting for flat to slightly lower prices for alternating current products over the next two to three years after a drop of about 20 percent from 2009 to 2011, Poux-Guillaume said. Poux-Guillaume has been given the task of raising grid- equipment margins to 8 percent from 6.2 percent at the end of Alstom's last fiscal year, though no deadline is in place because of the pricing outlook. Closures have affected sites in Mexico, Australia and China, with additional jobs going at some German plants and at Alstom's headquarters near Paris. Some savings are being passed directly to customers, the executive said, declining to be specific. Sales from April through December fell 4 percent even as orders jumped 8 percent. At 4 billion euros ($5.1 billion), the division's turnover accounts for about one-fifth of Alstom's overall sales. Adapting The company, based in Levallois-Perret, joins rivals ABB Ltd. (ABB) and Siemens AG (SIE) in overhauling operations to adapt to overcapacity in switchgears and transformers. Alstom's deadline for meeting the 8 percent margin target "will largely be linked to healthier price dynamics, which we hardly see in the next two to three years," Poux-Guillaume said. Delays in completing projects in India have been a further challenge. The nation accounts for 15 percent of business and some "near-bankrupt" independent power producers have stopped work at sites as India's economy slowed and power prices dropped, he said. "We've had a very clear jump in unpaid bills over the past 12 months in India," in the tens of million euros, according to the executive. The company will be paid when projects resume with existing or new operators, he said, adding that presidential elections in 2014 may help spur progress. Alstom shares have advanced 16 percent this year, matching ABB's performance. Siemens has gained 2.1 percent. Growth Areas Within the 40 billion-euro global power-transmission market, remaining growth areas are high voltage direct current, or HVDC, typically used for long-distance connections, and for so-called smart-grid management systems to improve network efficiency and integrate intermittent renewable power supplies, remain growth areas, he said. The HVDC market alone may triple to 9 billion euros per year at the end of the decade amid increased demand for interconnections in Europe, the Middle East and North America, offshore wind farms in Europe, and a race for higher voltage links in China and India, the French company said on Feb. 28. Alstom, which is building the longest DC line in the world in Brazil, aims to book about 2.5 billion euros of orders in HVDC over the next three years. It recently won such contracts in Sweden, India, and for German offshore wind farms. Alstom also wants to grow by more than 10 percent a year in grid services, where it's under-represented, and aims to increase sales to the oil, gas and mining industries, which need to secure power reliability with equipment, Poux-Guillaume said. Partnerships are being discussed in Russia and Korea that will help tap local HVDC projects, he said. Clean Energy Future opportunities include a tender for a link between France and Italy to be launched by the end of the year, connections for offshore wind farms in the U.K., and between Turkey and neighboring countries, Poux-Guillaume said. Germany also plans to build five HVDC landlines to connect the south of the country to its wind farms in the Northern and Baltic seas as it's investing in clean energy and planning to phase out nuclear power by 2022, he said. "These are significant budgets, so operators tend to explore both alternative solutions and financing possibilities before launching them," Poux-Guillaume said. "That sometimes delay projects, but the market is there." To contact the reporter on this story: Francois de Beaupuy in Paris at To contact the editor responsible for this story: Simon Thiel at
