Graz, March 6, 2014.  International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an
order from Klabin, the largest integrated pulp and paper company in Brazil, to
supply major production equipment for Klabin's new pulp mill in Ortigueira,
Paraná, Brazil. Start-up is scheduled for the first quarter of 2016. Comparably
