Helsinki, Finland, 21 February 2008 -- Metso Power, a part of Metso Paper, will supply SCA Packaging with an evaporation plant for the company's pulp and paper mill in Obbola, on the east coast of Sweden. Start-up for the evaporation plant is scheduled for the third quarter of 2009. The value of the order is approximately EUR 30 million.

The evaporation plant has the capacity to evaporate 270 metric tons of water per hour; it concentrates black liquor from pulp cooking for the recovery boiler combustion up to the dry solid content of 75%.
