Valmet will supply Stora Enso with a chemi-mechanical pulp (BCTMP) and a board
production line for their new mill site in Beihai, Guangxi Province in China.
The board machine will produce high-quality liquid packaging board and
folding box board grades. The production lines are planned to be operational
in early 2016.

The value of the order is around EUR 115 million. The order is included in
Valmet's second quarter 2014 orders received.

"We are glad that Stora Enso trusted us in this project and that we were able
to provide solutions for both pulp and board production. Liquid packaging
board is process-wise one of the most demanding board grades to produce and
it is a growing market," says Jari Vähäpesola, Paper Business Line President,
Valmet.

Valmet's technology will enable the production of high quality liquid
packaging board from eucalyptus

One of the end products of the new mill will be liquid packaging board. Liquid
packaging board is used for protecting and preserving its contents. High
level printing properties make paperboard cartons ideal for carriers and
brand builders.

The Valmet-supplied BCTMP line will be built for a production of 650 tons per
day of high quality pulp for liquid packaging board and folding box board.

Valmet's board machine delivery will include a multi-fourdinier forming
section with hybrid forming unit, press, drying and coating sections, a
surface sizing unit, a calender, a reel, two winders and a wide mill
engineering package. The delivery will also include related air systems,
chemical systems as well as stock preparation and auxiliary systems. The
annual production capacity will be approximately 450,000 tons of board.
