The Stendal mill is Mercer's second mill in Germany and located near the town of Stendal, about 300 kilometers north of our Rosenthal mill. Stendal's annual production capacity is approximately 660,000 ADMTs.

Construction of the Stendal mill was completed in September 2004, making it one of Europe's largest and most modern pulp mills. A significant portion of the capital investments at our German mills, including the construction of the Stendal mill, were financed in large part through government guaranteed term financing and government grants.

Stendal's scale is larger than previous European pulp mills to take advantage of the latest production technology, the large, sustainable local fiber supply and the expanded regional markets for NBSK pulp which resulted from German reunification and the eastward growth of the European Union. This state-of-the-art, single-line NBSK pulp mill had an initial annual production capacity of approximately 552,000 ADMTs. The addition of two new digesters along with other measures increased its current annual production capacity to approximately 660,000 ADMTs. Stendal is also a net energy producer, with approximately 700,000 MWh generated in 2009, 300,000 MWh of which was exported.
