SunPine AB has awarded Pöyry with the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services assignment for SunPine biorefinery expansion project in Piteå, Sweden.

SunPine has a world-leading sustainable bio-refinery, with a portfolio of green products that meet strong demand in the market. The market for SunPine's sustainable tall diesel fuel is growing when consumers are shifting to renewable fuels. SunPine have decided to invest in a completely new facility adjacent to the company's existing plant at Haraholmen in Piteå. Capacity will be increased by 50 per cent with second tall diesel production line.

Pöyry has been involved in the study phase of the project and has now the role to further develop the project in accordance with the conditions, standards and procedures of the existing plant to form a single unit. Pöyry's assignment includes all engineering disciplines, project management services, procurement and construction management services and the work will be carried out between 2018 and 2020.

"Pöyry is proud to contribute in this green economy investment. Our long co-operation with SunPine and deep knowledge of bio-based solutions will lead this project to success. Our strong safety performance ensures that implementation of second line can be done when the first line is in production. This assignment further strengthens Pöyry's position as a global provider of bio-based solutions," says Jonny Stridh, Managing Director, Industry Business Group, Pöyry Sweden.
