Graz, 11 December 2007.  Australian Visy Industries, the world's largest privately owned packaging and recycling company, selected international technology Group Andritz to supply technology and systems for the expansion of its Tumut mill in New South Wales, Australia.  The order encompasses the upgrade of the existing fiberline and recausticizing plant, and the installation of a new recovery boiler, pre-evaporator, lime kiln, equipment for the recycled fiber plant, stock preparation, and approach flow systems.   Total value of the order for Andritz is near 70 MEUR.

The expansion will more than double the mill's kraftliner capacity from 300,000 to 680,000 t/a.  Preliminary work on the site will commence in late 2007.  It is planned that the entire integrated mill will be operational during the second half of 2009.
