Pöyry Oyj: Pöyry awarded basic engineering assignment for the new wastewater solution in Lappeenranta, Finland

PÖYRY PLC Press release, 16 May 2016 at 13:00 pm (EEST)

Pöyry awarded basic engineering assignment for the new wastewater solution in
Lappeenranta, Finland

Lappeenrannan Lämpövoima Oy has awarded Pöyry the basic engineering assignment
for the new Lappeenranta wastewater treatment plant and its wastewater
transfer system. The assignment also includes identification and comparison
of process solutions, piloting of the selected solution, optimisation of the
wastewater balancing and pumping systems and preparation of the building
permit documents.

The treatment plant will be able to purify the wastewater load equivalent to a
population of 130,000 people. The wastewater will be treated mechanically,
chemically and biologically. Particular challenges arise from the wastewater
from the local waste management utility and the strictest treatment
regulations ever set in Finland. The total phosphorus content of the treated
wastewater may not exceed 0.1 mg/l. Therefore, operational reliability of the
transfer system and the treatment plant under all conditions, and use of the
most modern and effective technology, will be important priorities in the
design.

After completion in Summer 2021, the Lappeenranta wastewater treatment plant
will be the most modern wastewater facility in Finland and one of the
best-performing facilities in Europe. The basic engineering phase started in
February 2016. It will be completed at the end of 2017 in conjunction with
the building permit applications.

"Our cooperation with Pöyry worked well during the Environmental Impact
Assessment and pre-engineering phase. This gives us a good position to
continue the engineering process of this extensive and demanding project,"
says Riitta Moisio, Water and Environment Manager at Lappeenrannan
Lämpövoima.

"We are happy to have the opportunity to continue our productive cooperation
to deliver the best for this project. We appreciate the clear understanding
of Lappeenrannan Lämpövoima in the difficulty of the project, which was
reflected in the selection criteria set for the consultant. Pöyry is the
right partner for solving demanding water-related problems," says Reijo
Kuivamäki, President of the Water Business Unit at Pöyry.

The value of the order will not be disclosed. The order has been recognised in
the order stock of Regional Operations in Q1 2016.
