PÖYRY PLC Press Release 9 October 2015 2 pm (EEST)

Pöyry awarded EPCM services assignment by Suominen for a new wetlaid
production line in USA

Suominen has awarded Pöyry (Appleton) LLC with the EPCM services assignment
for the installation of a new wetlaid production line to be located in its
Bethune plant, South Carolina, USA. The project includes the installation of
a new wetlaid line as well as associated process, electrical and automation
systems.

The investment is expected to create at least 25 jobs at the Suominen Bethune
plant and the new line is anticipated to be installed in the second half of
2016.

"To achieve the targeted substantial growth, we seek to increase both our
sales volumes and the share of products with higher value-added in our
portfolio. Therefore, the new production line will focus on supplying
nonwovens with higher added value for, among others, household and industrial
wiping as well as flushable applications" says Nina Kopola, President&CEO of
Suominen Corporation.

"This is an important new project reference in the wiping and hygienic
applications and a continuation of a key client relationship for Pöyry" says
Vilho Salovaara, President of Pöyry's Regional Operations North America.

The value of the order is not disclosed. The order will be recognised within
the Regional Operations Business Line order stock in Q3/2015.
