Metso Corporation's press release on April 29, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. local time

Metso will supply a cooking plant and a fiber line upgrade to the Khon Kaen mill of Phoenix Pulp & Paper Co. in Thailand. Start-up of the equipment is scheduled for July, 2012. The value of the order is approximately EUR 10 million. The order is included in Paper and Fiber Technology's Q2 2011 orders received.

Metso's delivery will include a two-vessel digester for producing 200,000 tons of eucalyptus pulp per year. The delivery will also include a wash press for the fiber line upgrade.
