PARIS, Feb 18 (Reuters) - Orange is open topotential partnerships with European peers Vodafone andDeutsche Telekom over mobile infrastructure, itschief executive said on Thursday, after the French telecoms firmfinalised the carving out of its masts company.

"Our plan isn't to sell our towers to Cellnex or to AmericanTower," CEO Stéphane Richard told reporters at a newsconference, referring to two of the biggest tower companies.

"Our plan is to develop an alternative offer, created andmanaged by a (telecoms) operator and see if others down the roadshare our views," he said, citing Vodafone and Deutsche Telekomas potential partners.

Richard said no formal talks were taking place with eitherVodafone or Deutsche Telekom at the moment, but that it madesense for the two peers to consider this option after theycarved out their own tower companies.
