Vaisala Oyj: Vaisala to Donate Measurement Instruments to the New Children's Hospital 2017 in Helsinki

Press Release 29.4.2014

Vaisala will be contributing humidity, temperature, and carbon dioxide
measurement instruments to the new children's hospital to be constructed in
Helsinki, Finland in 2017. The equipment is valued at an estimated 225 000
euro and will be integrated into the hospital's building automation solution.

"This project is a very valuable one for Finnish wellbeing, as well as for the
future. We at Vaisala are delighted and proud to join in the effort to help
build the world's best children's hospital. In a hospital environment, good
indoor air quality is an obvious and fundamental requirement for both
patients and staff, helping to ensure high quality care and a safe working
environment," says Vaisala President and CEO Kjell Forsén.

Vaisala's measurement equipment will provide data to control the central
heating, ventilation and air conditioning system in the building. These
instruments will gather data on temperature, carbon dioxide, and relative
humidity. The information will be used to adjust ventilation intensity to
meet actual ambient conditions and requirements, which changes based on the
number of people in a particular area. This also helps to ensure that indoor
air quality is optimized, further improving the overall energy efficiency of
the building.

"The new children's hospital is being designed and constructed in accordance
with a dozen select and measurable criteria. In addition to medical
processes, the child's and family's experience in the hospital are at the
core of this project. Other important factors include the hospital as a work
environment, its reliability, safety, and energy efficiency. Vaisala's
contribution brings the industry-leading, state-of-the-art technology to the
children's hospital, which will help us reach our target, to build the
world's best children's hospital," commends Chairman of the Board of the New
Children's Hospital 2017 Foundation, Anne Berner.
