Valmet: Valmet to supply a flue gas desulphurization plant to CIECH Soda Polska in Poland

Valmet Corporation's press release on January 26, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. EET

Valmet has signed a contract with CIECH Soda Polska S.A. for the supply of a
flue gas desulphurization plant (FGD) to Soda Polska's Janikowo combined heat
and power (CHP) plant in Poland. This is the second order of a FGD plant from
CIECH Soda Polska. In August 2015, Valmet signed a contract for a similar
plant for the Inowroclaw CHP plant including a Selective Catalytic Reduction
(SCR) plant.

The order is included in Valmet's fourth quarter 2015 orders received. The
value of the order is around EUR 20 million.

"This investment will extend the lifetime of the Janikowo CHP plant and help
us in complying with the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) by decreasing
our sulfur dioxide (SO2) and dust emissions," saysMarcin Malek
, Director of Investments at CIECH Soda Polska.

Technical information about the delivery

The Janikowo CHP plant provides energy to the Janikowo Chemical Plant, owned
by the Polish CIECH group. The CHP plant is in the national transition plan
in Poland for compliance with the IED and will have to comply with tight
annual emission ceilings for sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and dust
starting in 2017.

Valmet's delivery includes a wet limestone based flue gas desulphurization
(FGD) plant to remove SO2from the flue gases of two existing coal fired steam
boilers, each with 140 tonnes per hour steam capacity. The FGD is planned to
be in commercial operation in September 2017.

"The advantage of our FGD technology is the use of low cost limestone sorbent
in the sulphur removal process and the production of gypsum as an end
product. Gypsum itself can be used in a wide variety of applications in the
building industry. In Janikowo there is an additional benefit, as it will
also be possible to use the end-product of the existing semi-dry FGD as zero
cost sorbent," saysFrank Ligthart
, Sales Director at Valmet.
