JAAKKO PÖYRY GROUP APPOINTED MAIN ENGINEERING CONSULTANT FOR
STORA ENSO'S NEW PAPER MACHINE AT LANGERBRUGGE

Jaakko Pöyry Oy and JP-Kakko Oy, which are a part of the Jaakko
Pöyry Group's Forest Industry business group, have been
commissioned to provide pre-engineering and implementation
engineering for Stora Enso's new PM4 to be built at Langerbrugge,
Belgium. The implementation engineering will start when the
project decision has been made by Stora Enso. Services include
plant engineering, structural engineering, co-ordination of the
project, erection supervision and start-up assistance. The
assignment also includes a document management service covering
all parties in the project, which will be implemented by Jaakko
Pöyry Group Oyj's and Elisa Communications Oyj's joint venture
company Inforbis Oy, acting as an Application Service Provider
(ASP). This is the first major document management assignment of
Inforbis Oy, which was established in January 2001. The total
value of the engineering service contracts is about EUR 15
million.

Stora Enso's investment project at Langerbrugge comprises a new
deinking plant, waste paper storage, a new paper machine including
finishing equipment, a paper product warehouse, a solid fuel
boiler, connections to existing plants and expansions of the fresh
water and effluent treatment plants. The new production line will
have a capacity of 400 000 tons a year. It is scheduled to be
started up at the end of 2002.

The engineering work is a continuation of Stora Enso's and Jaakko
Pöyry's longstanding co-operation in the implementation of pulp
and paper mill projects.
