PÖYRY APPOINTED MAIN ENGINEERING CONSULTANT FOR THE RECOVERY LINE AT

Pöyry's Forest Industry business group has been commissioned to

be performed at Pöyry's office in Kouvola, with units from the
Vantaa office participating in the project.

The rebuilt recovery plant will improve the cost competitiveness and
product quality of the Kymi mill. The recovery line will be started
up in the last quarter of 2008.

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

Pöyry is a global consulting and engineering firm focusing on the
energy, forest industry and infrastructure & environment sectors.
Pöyry's annual net sales amount to about EUR 530 million and it
employs 5600 experts.
