The new facility, based in Bahia, will be
dedicated to the assembly of wind turbines with an annual
capacity of up to 300 MW per year. The estimated investment is R$
50 million (approximately 20 million). Under the terms and
conditions of the memorandum, the new wind turbine assembly
facility could enter in operation in early 2011.

"With the installation of its first wind
turbine assembly in the country, Alstom confirms its strategy in
the region and its aim to become a key player in the Brazilian
wind market. Brazils energy market has great potential for
the production of alternative electricity, and Alstom has the
technology and expertise needed to contribute to the development
of the wind energy sector, said Philippe Cochet, President
of Alstom Hydro.

Alstom, with its global renewables
portfolio, is consolidating its leadership in the Brazilian
renewable energy market. This wind turbine assembly facility,
Alstoms first in the country, puts us firmly on the
Brazilian wind market map, underlines Marcos Costa, Head
of Power, Alstom Brazil.

"The symbolism of the creation of
Alstoms first wind turbine assembly facility in the State
of Bahia is very significant. Besides being an international icon
in areas of transport and energy, this is a milestone in our
integration into the renewable energy industry. We will have the
opportunity to attract investment and technology transfer in the
wind industry, and add new tax revenue and more jobs for Bahia,"
added the Brazilian Secretary of Industry, Commerce and Mining,
James Correia.

Alstom believes in the wind as a viable source
of clean energy and to help reduce emissions of CO2 and other
pollutants that harm the environment. The company has operations
in wind energy in several countries.
