Alstom (Euronext: ALO) is to retrofit the Controbloc N20 units at 20 EDF-owned French nuclear power plants in a deal worth $62m.
Controbloc N20 is a control system for power plants; operators can improve control with various sensors across the plant that monitors components such as actuators of pumps, valves, engines and electrical units.
Under the terms of the contract, Alstom will modernize the existing units by adding new technology based on its ALSPA Series 6 control system.
The first retrofitted unit will be deployed in 2015.
