Close to 25% of the world's power production capacity depends
on Alstom technology and services.
Our clean technologies generate electricity equivalent to the needs of around 1.2 billion homes.
From gas to wind, our customers can choose from a portfolio of products covering all fuel types, the broadest in the industry. In design, manufacture, procurement, construction and servicing, we have been setting the benchmark in clean, efficient, flexible and integrated power generation solutions for over a century.
Our constant quest for innovation has enabled us to achieve a number of global power generation milestones:
