ABB Ltd. said Thursday that it has won a contract to supply electrification and drive technology for a Finnish bioproduct mill.

The Swiss company has signed a preliminary binding agreement with Metsa Fibre, which is the world's largest producer of softwood pulp and is part of Metsa Group.

The order is worth about 40 million euros ($43.3 million) and production at the new mill could start in 2023, ABB said.
