The new production line will have an annual pulp production capacity of 1.75 million tons. Combined with its existing capacity, already in operation, the Três Lagoas unit will reach a total annual production capacity of 3 million tons, making it one of the world's largest eucalyptus pulp production sites. It was agreed not to disclose the order value; however typical order values of comparable reference projects are in the magnitude of approximately 600 million Euros. The contract is expected to be put into force during the third quarter of 2015.
