Pori Energia Oy has awarded Pöyry with the Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) services for the new Aittaluoto Power Plant project in Pori, Finland. The assignment includes project management, basic and detail engineering and procurement services.

This assignment further strengthens Pöyry's position as the world leader in energy efficient thermal power. Following last week's project announcement, this new project further strengthens Pöyry's ranking as preferred energy consultant in Finland", says Ilkka Heikkilä, Pöyry's Regional Director for Thermal Power.
