ÅF has signed an Owner's Engineer contract with Riikinvoima Oy for a new CHP
plant in the Varkaus area, about 300 km north-east of Helsinki, Finland.  The
value of the contract for ÅF is about EUR 1 million.

The assignment includes supervision of the EPC delivery, project management as a
representative of the client, control of EPC delivery documents, quality
control, general site management supervision, as well as supervision of
commissioning and testing activities. ÅF may also supply additional site
supervision services.

Riikinvoima will build a new waste-to-energy CHP plant based on circulating
fluidized bed technology (CFB) at the Riikinneva waste center. The plant will
use about 145,000 tons of municipal waste as fuel annually. Output of the power
plant will be ca. 90 GWh of electrical power and ca. 180 GWh of heat. The
project starts immediately and commercial operation is scheduled to start in
late 2016.

"This is an interesting and unique project in Finland, thanks to the massive
waste pretreatment combined with the CFB boiler as an EPC delivery," says MD
Jari Leskinen.
