JAAKKO PÖYRY GROUP OYJ     Stock Exchange Notice
                           June 5, 2002, at 12.15 p.m.

JAAKKO PÖYRY GROUP APPOINTED MAIN ENGINEERING CONSULTANT FOR THE
RECOVERY LINE AT UPM-KYMMENE'S PIETARSAARI PULP MILL

Jaakko Pöyry Oy and JP-Kakko Oy, which are part of the Jaakko Pöyry
Group's Forest Industry business group, have been commissioned to
provide engineering services for the new recovery line being built
by UPM-Kymmene Oyj's Wisaforest pulp mill at Pietarsaari, Finland.
The total contract value is about EUR 8 million.

Scheduled to start at the beginning of June 2002, the engineering
services are a continuation of engineering work done in the
project's preparatory phase. Services include plant and structural
engineering, project co-ordination and start-up assistance. The
project also includes services for organizing document management
between different parties in the project.

UPM-Kymmene's investment project includes a new evaporation plant,
tall oil plant, recovery boiler, turbogenerator, causticising
department, lime kiln and tie-ins with existing mill departments.
Following completion of this investment project, the pulp mill's
production capacity will increase to about 800 000 tons a year. The
new recovery line will be started up in the second quarter of 2004.

The new assignment stems from UPM-Kymmene's and Jaakko Pöyry's
longstanding co-operation in the implementation of industrial
investment projects.

The Forest Industry business group, operating under the brand name
Jaakko Pöyry, had net sales of EUR 150 million in 2001. Jaakko Pöyry
has offices in 14 countries and employs some 1800 experts worldwide.
