 Valmet Corporation: Valmet to upgrade two boilers at Mondi Group's mills in
                             Sweden and Bulgaria

Valmet Corporation's press release on January 31, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. EET

Valmet will upgrade a recovery boiler at Mondi Group's Dynäs paper mill in
Sweden and a power boiler at Mondi's Stambolijski mill in Bulgaria.

The purpose of the upgrades is to increase the capacity and availability of
the boilers. Both boiler rebuilds are planned to be ready in the fall of 2014.
The order is included in Valmet's first quarter 2014 orders received. The
value of the order will not be disclosed.

"Mondi has been very active to develop their mills, and we, at Valmet, are
very happy that Mondi has selected us for these important rebuilds. Upgrades
are an area that is becoming more and more important for the industry in
Europe as it relatively quickly increases production in existing plants," says
Markus Bolhàr-Nordenkampf, Director Central and Eastern Europe, Valmet.

The scope and selection of solutions in a Valmet boiler upgrade depend on the
needs and technology at the mill or in the boiler plant. An upgrade normally
provides increased capacity and improved boiler performance. It can also
increase the service life of the boiler by as much as 10-15 years, depending
on the circumstances.
