Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction has acquired ŠKODA POWER a.s., a leading European producer of steam turbines, in a deal worth US$662 million. This has been the largest foreign investment transaction in the Czech Republic this year.

As part of the Doosan Corporation, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction is South Korea's largest power equipment maker. The company also produces industrial facilities, machine tools and construction equipment. Doosan Heavy has built over 300 nuclear, thermal, combined cycle and hydro power plants and is currently building more than 60 power plants worlwide. The company is fast becoming an EPC contractor as a result of continuous investments and R&D, while also developing wind power systems, fuel cells and environmentally friendly next-generation energy.

This transaction is the latest in a series of takeovers led by Doosan, including the acquisition of US-based Bobcat, the world's top compact construction equipment firm.

ŠKODA POWER a.s., based in Pilsen, Czech Republic, is a leading European manufacturer and supplier of technological equipment and customer services in the field of power generation. The company supplies steam turbines to machine halls of ŠKODA design and offers complex services for fossil power plants, co-generation units, combined cycles, nuclear power plants, and waste and biomass incineration plants. In 2008, the company’s revenue reached over US$250 million.

ŠKODA HOLDING is a financial holding owned by Appian Group, an international investment group. The holding was created based on a financial and organizational restructuring.
