Helsinki, Finland, 10 June 2011 -- Metso will rebuild two board machines for M-real in Finland. The start-up of the rebuilt machine at the Kyro mill is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2011 and that of the rebuilt machine at the Äänekoski mill for the second quarter of 2012. The combined value of the orders is more than EUR 15 million. The orders were included in Paper and Fiber Technology’s first quarter 2011 orders received.

Metso's delivery to the Kyro mill will include a rebuild of the press, dryer, and coating sections. In a coating drying rebuild, new energy-efficient high-drying-capacity air dryers will be added to increase drying capacity and to replace old gas infrared dryers.

Metso’s delivery to the Äänekoski mill will include a rebuild of the headbox, the coating section, and the reel, and an automatic parent roll transfer system for the new winder. A new headbox and a new two-drum winder will be installed to increase capacity. After the rebuild, the annual board capacity of the Äänekoski mill will increase to approximately 240,000 metric tons.
