A blog post on 25th March from The FCPA Blog claimed that the ADB had debarred several former Alstom companies now owned by GE Power for up to 76 months because of fraud and bribery committed on 2 projects in Egypt that were financed by ADB. ADB said the offences occurred in 2006 and 2011, but GE Power acquired the former Alstom companies in 2015. The companies affected are Alstom Egypt for Power Projects S.A.E. (based in Cairo), and German companies GE Power Systems GmbH and GE Power GmbH (formerly Alstom Power GmbH). It also said that GE Power promised to collaborate with the African Development Bank’s Office of Integrity and Anti-Corruption “in the fight against corruption in the power generation and transmission sector”.
