VANTAA, Finland, April 28, 2010 (Press Release) -Suzano Papel e Celulose Ltda, Brazil, has awarded Pöyry a contract for pre-engineering and preparatory work for mill infrastructure for a 1.3 million t/a bleached eucalyptus market pulp mill to be built in the state of Maranhao, Brazil. The value of Pöyry's assignment is about EUR 7.3 million. The client is expected to make the final investment decision in spring next year.

The concept of the mill is based on the use of the best available technologies and the best environmental practices, which constitute a state-of-the-art level pulp mill. Using existing eucalyptus plantations as raw material, the mill is to produce more with less use of natural resources, at low production costs, progressive environmental impact reduction and minimum risk of accidents at work.

The assignment now received strengthens Pöyry's position as the leading engineering solutions provider for the pulp and paper sector in the world.
