Company Information

Graz (euro adhoc) - Graz, September 5, 2013.  ANDRITZ Energy & Environment
(AE&E), part of international technology Group ANDRITZ, has received an order
from Empresa Eléctrica Guacolda to supply three flue gas cleaning plants using
the ANDRITZ Turbo-CDS system, four desalination plants and a selective catalytic
reduction DeNOx system for Guacolda, a coal-fired power station in Huasco,
Chile. Start-up is scheduled for late 2015/early 2016. The order value is
approximately 150 million euros.

Due to recent more stringent legal requirements in Chile, Empresa Eléctrica
Guacolda is investing in an environmental protection program in order to further
reduce the emissions from Guacolda power station. With an overall capacity of
608 megawatts, the power plant contributes an essential part of the power supply
to the region's industry and households.

This order confirms the position of ANDRITZ Air Pollution Control as one of the
world's leading suppliers of flue gas cleaning and selective catalytic reduction
plants.
