HELSINKI , July 30, 2009 (press release) – Metso will supply a power boiler to S.A Industrias Celulosa Aragonesa's (SAICA) new waste-to-energy power plant at Zaragoza in Spain. Start-up for the plant is scheduled for the third quarter of 2011. The value of this order is approximately EUR 50 million. The order is included in Energy and Environmental Technology's Q3 orders reveiced.

The power boiler will be a 150 MW (thermal capacity) multi-fuel boiler using Metso's circulating fluidized bed technology and high-performance flue gas cleaning system, giving the new plant very high environmental performance. With this investment SAICA will minimize their landfill operations and instead recycle their paper mill waste into electrical power.

SAICA is Spain's largest paper producer with a production capacity of 2 million tons/year of corrugated paper. SAICA is also the largest paper recycler in Spain, using recovered paper for papermaking. At present the company recycles 2.2 million tons of paper per year which otherwise would go to dump.

Metso is a global supplier of sustainable technology and services for mining, construction, power generation, automation, recycling and the pulp and paper industries. We have about 28,000 employees in more than 50 countries,
