PÖYRY PLCCompany Announcement11 of March 2013 at 10.30 a.m.

Pöyry has been awarded an assignment by CMPC Celulose Riograndense for the
expansion of the company's Guaiba pulp mill in Rio Grande do Sul state,
Brazil. The assignment consists of Engineering, Procurement and Construction
Management (EPCM) services for the Balance of Plant (BOP) and involves
integrating the different processes of the mill. These engineering and project
management services will start immediately. The parties have agreed that the
value of the assignment is not disclosed. The project will be included in the
Industry Business Group's first quarter 2013 order stock.

The capacity of the new state-of-the-art pulp mill is 1.3 million tonnes per
year and the startup of the mill is planned for the first quarter of 2015. The
bleached eucalyptus pulp production line is the largest investment in the CMPC
history.

Pöyry has been involved in the project since October, 2010 when CMPC awarded
Pöyry an assignment for feasibility studies and basic engineering. The company
was also awarded a preparatory work for the mill infrastructure. Now Pöyry
will be responsible for overseeing that the different parts of the plant will
be efficiently developed and connected together. CMPC selected Pöyry for the
company's exceptional track record and thought leadership in similar projects.
The concept of the mill is based on the use of the best available technologies
and the best environmental practices.

The contract further strengthens Pöyry's position as the world's leading
engineering solutions provider for the pulp and paper sector.
