ÅF has signed a contract with Stora Enso to conduct a pre-project prior to the
construction of a new bleaching plant at the Skutskär Pulp Mill, and other
reconstruction work in connection with related aspects of the process.

The initial order value for ÅF amounts to approx. SEK 6 million.

Most of the work will be carried out by consultants from ÅF's office in nearby
Gävle, but additional specialist resources and competence will be called in from
other ÅF offices. The work will be integrated with that undertaken by Stora Enso
Skutskär's own project organisation.

The project is scheduled for completion by the end of June 2012, after which a
formal decision will be taken about future implementation.

ÅF has secured the initial order thanks to its proven ability to offer high
levels of competence, its strong local organisation and its reference portfolio
of major industrial projects that demonstrate the breadth and depth of the
company's expertise in the pulp and paper industry. This new assignment further
consolidates ÅF's position as the leading supplier of technical consulting
services to the Swedish forest industry.
