Alstom 

 

‘Shaping the future’

 

This is the motto of Alstom, and the message is a clear illustration of the company’s approach to business, as one that not only shapes the present but also the years to come. When unveiling projects that will affect the lifestyles of future generations, Alstom consistently aims to be the best, and is always driven by the same innovative vision.

 

Established in France in 1928, and currently operating in nearly 100 countries around the world from America to Europe, the Middle East to Asia, Alstom brought its well-established and reliable experience to Turkey in the 1950s.

 

Since the beginning of its operations in Turkey, when it supplied trains to the Turkish State Railways (TCDD), Alstom has instigated projects in power generation, the electrical grid, and rail transport sectors, touching the lives of millions of people.

 

Alstom has made significant contributions to many innovations, introduced to Turkey for the first time, in industries such as:

 

  • Supplying subway trains for Turkey’s largest province, Istanbul's first metro line from Taksim to Levent, and involvement in the construction of its infrastructure.
  • Commissioning Seyhan Hydroelectric Power Plant – the first large hydropower plant in Turkey.
  • Manufacturing the world's largest electric arc furnace transformer in Gebze.
  • Supplying boiler or steam turbines for over 60 percent of the coal plants in Turkey.
  • As Turkey's leading hydroelectric equipment supplier with around a 50 percent share in the hydro generator market, Alstom is also one of the world's most active players in wind turbines. The wind turbines, evolved thanks to its engineering inventions, are already in operation in the Hatay Şenköy Wind Park.
  • Supplying key equipment for more than 25 percent of Turkey's installed power generation capacity.
  • The transformer plant established in 1966 in Gebze has today become one of the largest and most modern high voltage transformer plants in the world. Alstom exports around 85 percent of the capacity produced in this plant to all around the world, creating added-value for the Turkish economy.
  • Since 2011 Alstom is export champion in the transformers and inductors category, confirming its presence as a net exporter company in Turkey.
  • As the main supplier to the Turkish Electricity Transmission Company (TEIAS), Alstom supplied around 50 percent of its installed transmission products.

 

Since 2012, Turkey is the headquarters for Alstom Transport Middle East & Africa (MEA) region. In 2014, the Istanbul office became the regional center for Alstom Transport’s signaling and system projects. Therefore, all tendering, project management, designing, purchasing, engineering, and maintenance services for the signaling and system projects in MEA are conducted from Istanbul. This positions Istanbul and Turkey as a key decision making center for the region.

 

Driven by motivation, enthusiasm, and determination, and as a consequence of its many illustrious achievements, Alstom Turkey continues to develop new projects and shape the future.
