Company Information

Graz - April 22, 2021. International technology group ANDRITZ has received an
order from BillerudKorsnäs to supply a HERB recovery boiler for its mill in
Frövi, Sweden. Start-up is scheduled for the end of 2023. The new boiler will
replace the existing recovery boiler that has been in operation in Frövi since
1969.

The ANDRITZ scope of supply includes a HERB recovery boiler designed for the
current pulp production level, but also to support a future black liquor
combustion capacity of 1,670 tds/d and with future steam parameters of 100 bar
and 505°C to maximize power generation.

ANDRITZ will also supply a high-density concentrator solution to increase the
black liquor concentration. This will improve operation and increase power
generation by the HERB recovery boiler at Frövi mill even further.

Richard Morén, Mill Director, BillerudKorsnäs Frövi, says: "We have been very
pleased with the co-operation with ANDRITZ during the sales phase, and selection
of the recovery boiler supplier is an important step in our Frövi investment
project. We are looking forward to working in co-operation with the entire
ANDRITZ team during the project phase."

Henrik Wikstedt, Vice President, Recovery Boilers, ANDRITZ, says: "We are very
proud that BillerudKorsnäs has placed its trust in the ANDRITZ team and our
technical solutions. Both the sales process and the collaboration between our
teams were good right from the beginning. As a result, we have gathered an
excellent understanding of BillerudKorsnäs' business drivers and targets. We are
looking forward to this project and to extending our collaboration even
further."
