Helsinki, Finland 12 June 2006 -- Metso Paper will supply a new fiber line to ITC Ltd. for company's pulp mill expansion project in Bhadrachalam, in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India.

Metso Paper's scope of delivery covers all the main process machinery, pressure vessels, field instruments, basic engineering, and supervision services from cooking, up to ready bleached pulp. The selected technology features a modern, environmentally sound process that uses oxygen delignification and ozone bleaching technologies.

The new cooking system will produce pulp for both fiber lines and is designed for a total daily production of 800 metric tons. The special feature of the process is that it enables simultaneous cooking of two different wood species for the the two fiber lines.
