The battle for Alstom was set to intensify Tuesday, with Siemens ready to confirm its bid for the French engineering group also coveted by US rival General Electric, an informed source said. French President Francois Hollande vowed on April 28, 2014 to safeguard jobs at Alstom as he met with both GE and Siemens chiefs, while Germany sought to boost Siemens' case, saying a tie-up offered a 'big opportunity' for Europe's two largest economies.
