Southern in Deal to Bid on Enel Generation Unit

LCG, July 28, 2000--The Southern Co. of the U.S. and Italian conglomerate CIR said in a joint statement this morning that they "will create a consortium with the aim of buying one of the generatingcompanies that (Italys state-owned electric company) Enel must sell in the upcoming months."

Under rules adopted by the European Commission, Enel will have to divest itself of some 15,000 megawatts of generation by 2003. On order to do so, the company is forming separate generation companies grouping its power plants.

In their statement, Southern and CIR said "The two largest companies, Eurogen of 7,000 megawatts and Electrogen of 5,400 megawatts, are particularly interesting."

Southerns investment would be made through its Southern Energy subsidiary, which already has a European presence with its majority interest in Germanys Bewag and a power trading company in The Netherlands.

"CIR and Southern Energy intend to develop their generating activity and commercialization of energy to create one of the leading Italian groups and an important operator at a European level," the statement said.

Southern Energy may also build new natural gas-fired power plants in Italy, the statement added.

CIR would make its investment through a subsidiary, Energia Italiana.
