Alstom opens hydroelectric power research facility in Canada

SOREL-TRACY, Canada, 11/9/11 (PennWell) -- Alstom recently inaugurated the company’s newest Global Technology Center (GTC) in the Canadian town of Sorel-Tracy. The center will focus on hydroelectric power.

Housed within Alstom’s (ENX: ALO) existing North American hydro headquarters manufacturing and engineering facility, Alstom said the GTC will serve as the company’s global hub for innovation in hydro retrofit processes and technology.

The Sorel-Tracy GTC houses a team of Alstom research experts and engineers working with industry and academic partners to study improvements in retrofit techniques that can improve plant performance, availability and reliability without increasing overall plant size or environmental impact.
