LEVALLOIS-PERRET, France--(Business Wire)--
Regulatory News: 

Lake Road Generating Company, L.P. has entered into a €125 million service
contract with Alstom (Paris:ALO) for its 844 MW combined-cycle power plant
located in Dayville, Connecticut. The agreement covers the Lake Road facility`s
three Alstom GT24 gas turbines. 

In addition to the delivery of parts and equipment for the performance of
planned maintenance, Alstom will furnish the Lake Road team with all necessary
craft labour as well as on-site technical field advisors. The contract also
includes delivery of an Alstom gas turbine upgrade package consisting of
technical and operational improvements designed to lower the cost of running and
maintaining gas turbines by extending time between inspections. 

"The market for natural gas power generation has changed considerably since the
Lake Road plant went online in 2002," said Hans-Peter Meer, Senior Vice
President of Alstom`s Thermal Services business. "The age of unconventional gas
is shifting the way customers operate their gas-fired power generating
facilities. As Lake Road is increasingly called-on to provide baseload power,
Alstom`s service team will help its operators adapt to this new market dynamic."
