Company Information

Graz (euro adhoc) - Graz, January 10, 2013.  International technology Group
ANDRITZ has received an order from Fortum Värme to supply a circulating
fluidized bed boiler for the new Värtaverket combined heat and power plant in
Stockholm, Sweden. The biomass boiler plant will be one of the largest of its
kind worldwide. Start-up is scheduled for the third quarter of 2015.

The order includes the supply of a PowerFluid fluidized bed boiler with useful
heat output of 330 MW, a flue gas cleaning plant, as well as the electrical and
control systems. With the new plant from ANDRITZ Energy & Environment, which
will cover the rising demand for district heating in Stockholm, fossil-based
fuels like coal and oil can be replaced largely by eco-friendly biomass. When
the biomass boiler plant is started up, the proportion of renewable fuels used
at the Värtaverket power station will increase from 45% to 70%.

The heating generated in the new Värtaverket combined heat and power plant will
be equivalent to the demand from a total of 190,000 households. Current
investments by Fortum Värme make a substantial contribution towards placing
Stockholm among the leading capital cities worldwide in terms of air quality.
Fortum Värme's goal is to supply Stockholm entirely with climate-neutral heat by
2030.
