Valmet Oyj's press release on September 14, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. EET

Valmet will supply a biofuel-fired power plant and related flue gas cleaning
and condensing systems to Borås Energi och Miljö's new energy and
environmental center in Sobacken, Borås, Sweden. The new plant will support
the strategy of the city of Borås to become a fossil fuel -free city.

The order is included in Valmet's third quarter 2016 orders received. The
value of the order is about EUR 60 million. For Valmet the main employment
impact of the project will be in Tampere, Finland.

Installation works are scheduled to begin in July, 2017. Heat production is
scheduled to start in 2019.

"When an over 50-year-old heat and power plant is replaced, environment,
flexibility and efficiency are extremely important in order to build
something truly sustainable. We are happy and proud to start collaboration
with Valmet, since sustainability plays a central role in their business
strategy. We are convinced that thanks to Valmet's influence the energy and
environmental center in Borås won't become only a new heating and power
plant, but also an environmental plant that will act as an example and a
reference for future investments," saysGunnar Peters
, Managing Director at Borås Energi och Miljö.

"Valmet's fluidized bed technology suits well in utilizing various fuels like
biomass and waste in power and heat production. This plant will fulfill
future environmental demands through high efficiency, good fuel flexibility
and reliable operation. We are very thankful for the trust and look forward
to deliver this sustainable energy project in close cooperation with Borås
Energi och Miljö," saysAnders Bergqvist
, Director Scandinavia at Valmet.
