Aker Solutions confirms GBP115M power project is biomass renewable plant in Scotland

03 February 2010 - Aker Solutions previously announced (Monday 1 February 2010

at 08:00 CET) that it has been awarded a power plant project in Europe. Aker

Solutions confirms the contract, awarded by RWE, is to provide design, supply,

installation, construction and commissioning for a new 50MW Biomass renewable

energy plant at the Tullis Russell Papermakers plant near Fife in Scotland. The

contract value to Aker Solutions is GBP 115 million. The scope includes for all

major plant items excluding the fluidized bed boiler and flue gas system which

will be provided by Metso Power.

This new plant will be the largest of its kind in Scotland, and will reduce

Tullis Russell's  annual carbon emmissions by 250,000 tonnes, reinforcing the

company's position as one of the world's leading environmentally-focused

papermakers. Work is scheduled to commence in February 2010, with commissioning

completed in March 2013.

Currently, the plant's on-site production of heat and electricity is achieved

with a combination of its own coal- and gas-fired cogeneration plant.  Operation

of the coal-fired plant is to be closed down under LCPD (Large Combustion Plant

Directive) regulations and the new Biomass plant will secure continuing energy

supplies.

Johan Cnossen, Senior Vice President, Europe, Middle East & Africa region with

Aker Solutions' Process and Construction business area said, "Aker Solutions has

extensive engineering and construction capability in power generation

facilities, particularly in the UK and the US.  We are looking forward to

working together with RWE, Metso Power and our other key suppliers on this

important biomass renewable energy project."

Stephan Lohr, RWE head of biomass said, "The combined skills and expertise of

our chosen contractor Aker Solutions will be a major asset during the

construction of the new Tullis Russell biomass power plant.  This project is

RWE's largest investment to date in biomass based power generation and part of

our ongoing commitment to investing EURO 1 billion per annum in renewable

energy."

 The contract party is Aker Solutions' subsidiary Aker Solutions E&C Ltd.
