Alstom: slimming down to survive

Siemens has bought Alstom's industrial turbines business. At E1.1 billion, Alstom has secured a good price for the unit. The sale also means that its E3 billion disposal program is off to an encouraging start. Much work remains to be done, however, if the company is to survive its E5 billion debt burden.

Elsam: shareholders deliberate the perfect fit

Elsam's board has spurned Vattenfall and thrown its weight behind a rival offer from the Danish state-owned DONG. If successful, this new entity would deliver on the government's desire to produce a national energy champion. However, shareholders are perhaps rightly unconvinced of the benefits of combining an integrated power utility and an upstream oil and gas company.

Finnish utilities: customers need to wake up to the competition

The end-user price for Finnish electricity customers has failed to track the fall in wholesale prices following last year's extremely high prices. The conditions that created the price peaks have now dissipated and customers need to be made more aware of this to help drive both switching and competition.

Fortum: a helping hand from Birka

Taking full control of Sweden's Birka has countered Fortum's losses from lower oil and electricity prices. The company envisages E100 million a year in cost savings from synergies from 2004. With 1.36 million distribution customers, a strong bundled service strategy, and an expected 1-2% rise in Nordic energy consumption, Fortum is on track for a good 2002.

Fortum: acquiring to focus on Nordic markets

Buying out Birka is part of Fortum's broader strategy to focus on the Nordic energy markets, as well as expanding in the heat and power segment. Fortum is also divesting its non-core businesses, and may make more acquisitions in the region. This matches the strategy of its main Nordic rival, Vattenfall, of focusing on energy supply in northern Europe.

Russian imports are a shrewd move for Sweden's MEUs

A newly formed consortium of 15 Swedish power users, known as Basel, has chosen to source its power from Russian imports rather than Swedish suppliers. As Datamonitor's Karl Lindstrom explains, this is a notable innovation in a power market that has been liberalized since 1996, and one that will be closely watched by power users elsewhere in Europe.
