Valmet: Valmet receives repeat order for two new tissue production lines from Lee & Man Paper Manufacturing in China

Valmet Corporation's press release on March 15, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. EET

Valmet will supply two Advantage DCT tissue production lines and related
automation systems to one of China's leading paper and pulp producers,
Lee&Man Manufacturing Ltd. The new lines will be installed at Lee&Man's mill
in Chongqing and start-up is planned to take place in late 2016.

The order is included in Valmet's first quarter 2016 orders received. The
value of the order is not disclosed.

Continuation of good cooperation

The Valmet's Advantage DCT 200HS tissue lines to be delivered are designed for
production of high quality tissue products. The new tissue lines will fulfill
the high requirements for effective technology and sustainability set by
Lee&Man. Previously the company has ordered three Advantage DCT 200HS tissue
lines of which one started up at the Chongqing mill 2015 and two will start
up this year.

"Our first installation in Chongqing is running very well and we are convinced
that the Advantage DCT technology and the partnership with Valmet will
support our market expansion in China," saysRaymond Lee
, Chairman of the Board, Lee&Man.

"It's an honor that Lee&Man have again decided to extend the cooperation which
already includes three tissue machine deliveries to the Chongqing mill. As
seen from the earlier installations, it is possible to reach significant
drying energy savings and highest paper quality by our innovative combination
of flexible pressing, casted Yankee and steam heated hood. With this
combination we are able to bring concrete benefits to our customers and to
take their performance forward," saysSvenerik Olsson
, Director, Tissue Mills Business Unit, Valmet China.

Valmet's Advantage DCT concept is well established on the market and has
proven to enable cost- and energy-efficient production of high quality tissue
products.

Technical information about the delivery

The new tissue machines will have a width of 5.6 m and a design speed of 2,000
m/min. Each machine will produce 60.000 tons of toilet and facial tissue per
year, using virgin wood pulp and bleached bamboo fiber as raw material.

Valmet's scope of delivery will comprise complete tissue production lines
featuring stock preparation systems and Advantage DCT 200HS tissue machines.
The machines will be equipped with OptiFlo headbox and cast alloy Yankee
cylinders. The machines will also be featured with the well proven Advantage
tissue technology including ViscoNip press, steam heated AirCap hood, WetDust
dust system and a SoftReel P reel. Basic engineering, installation
