LONDON, April 28, 2010 - Siemens has been awarded a major contract to design, manufacture and
install a state-of-the-art SST 800 steam turbine for the largest
biomass-fired combined heat and power plant ever to be developed in the UK.
The new plant, utilising Siemens innovative technology enables Tullis
, the Fife based paper manufacturer to meet its energy needs
efficiently and in a sustainable and environmentally responsible way.

Siemens received the order from Aker Solutions, a global provider of
engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services to the
natural resources and energy markets. Aker Solutions is engaged as the EPC
contractor to RWE npower renewables on this pioneering project. When fully
operational, Siemens' turbine will be fired with 400,000 tonnes of harvested
wood and waste and have an installed capacity of 50MW. The new plant will
replace the existing coal fired facility. This is a major step forward for
the industry and Tullis Russell, which will significantly reduce the mill's
carbon footprint.

The project highlights Siemens leadership in developing low carbon
solutions for its customers in the UK and globally and its proven
capabilities of its turbine technology.

"The Siemens team has shown real commitment in working with us to develop
the best solution for our customer," said Johan Cnossen, Senior Vice
President EMEA - Process & Construction, at Aker Solutions.

Steve Wildman, Project Director and General Manager for Siemens Oil and
Gas, UK, said: "We are delighted to be working with Aker Solutions to deliver
to RWE npower renewables this important and high profile project. At Siemens
we believe that the market for renewable sources of energy will experience
huge growth in the next few years. Siemens with its 160 year tradition of
innovation aims to stay at the forefront of this change - shaping the new
energy age with products and solutions that are both innovative and also
proven and which offer end-to-end support."

The project commenced March 2010, with commercial operations in place by
the end of 2012.
