Company Information

Graz, December 2, 2015.  International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an 
order from SCA to supply production technologies and equipment for the 
extension of SCA's Östrand pulp mill in Timrå, Sweden. Start-up is scheduled 
for the second quarter of 2018. The order is expected to enter into force in 
the next few weeks.

The scope of supply, with a high manufacturing portion in Sweden, includes 
wood yard equipment, a pulp dryer with innovative, energy-saving technologies 
that substantially reduce the mill's operating costs, a major upgrade of the 
white liquor plant, and extension of the recovery boiler, which was supplied 
by ANDRITZ in 2006.

The mill expansion is one of the largest industrial investments in Sweden 
and the largest ever in northern Sweden. SCA Östrand will double its annual 
production capacity from 430,000 to 900,000 tons and become the largest mill 
in the world for softwood kraft pulp.
