Pöyry's Energy business group has been awarded an owner's engineering services

consultancy services relate to a new combined cycle power plant called "Punta
del Tigre B" that will be erected in Uruguay. The contract includes a complete
design review of the EPC contractor documentation.
The overall value of the assignment for Pöyry is approximately EUR 1.9 million
and it will be booked in the fourth quarter order stock for 2012. The project
will start in February 2013 and will be completed by the end of 2016.

bidders because of its technical excellence and competitive proposal that met
the client's expectations. The
