      Mersen wins an order worth close to €7 million from AkzoNobel

Mersen is announcing the signature of a contract with AkzoNobel worth close 
to €7 million due for delivery in 2013. Signed as part of the modernization 
of AkzoNobel's chlor-alkali production facility in Frankfurt (Germany), 
the contract is to supply a set of turnkey units (skids) for the chemicals 
industry.

Mersen was chosen on account of its expertise in the design, manufacture and
delivery of turnkey hydrogen chloride synthesis units and its innovative heat
recovery system, which reduces the energy cost of the process. The units 
ordered from Mersen are built to withstand what is a highly corrosive process. 
Designed entirely by Mersen's engineering department, they will be delivered 
in the form of turnkey units ready for connection. This means that the customer
will be able to start them up as rapidly as possible.

These turnkey systems are for incorporation in units producing chlor-alkali and
chloromethane. These products are used in the manufacture of plastics, 
silicones and synthetic rubber, as well as by process industries 
(metal-working, paper, textiles, etc.).
