Company Information

Graz (euro adhoc) - Graz, March 22, 2012.  International technology Group
ANDRITZ has received an order from the Chilean electricity generation company
AES Gener S.A. and its subsidiary Norgener S.A. to supply two turnkey flue gas
desulphurization plants, including two fabric filters, for Tocopilla coal-fired
power plant (output 2 x 140 MW), as well as a flue gas desulphurization plant
and a fabric filter for Unit 1 (120 MW), and a bag filter plant (218 MW) for the
Ventanas coal-fired power station. The order value is close to 100 MEUR. 
Start-up is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2013.

Both plants will use the ANDRITZ Energy & Environment (AE&E) TurboSorp dry
desulphurization technology, which features operating reliability, durability,
and easy process control. The scope of supply includes design, engineering,
manufacture, installation, and start-up of the plants on EPC basis.

The many years of experience of the ANDRITZ GROUP in the successful execution of
large projects in Chile were among the decisive factors in the order award to
AE&E. This important reference order for flue gas desulphurization plants marks
ANDRITZ Energy & Environment´s entry into the growth market Chile: As a result
of new environmental protection regulations, new emission limits will apply here
for coal-fired power plants as from the end of 2013, creating the need to
retrofit flue gas desulphurization plants.
