Gasum and Poyry have signed a five year framework agreement for engineering and project implementation services to develop, plan and implement Gasum's natural gas projects in Finland. Gasum's aim is to achieve smart and competitive natural gas solutions for Finnish markets. The agreement covers project management, HSE, procurement, engineering, document management and other related services. Poyry is one of three engineering companies that were awarded with the frame agreement after public procurement procedure.
Gasum is a gas sector (natural gas and biogas) expert that is building a bridge to a carbon-neutral society on land and at sea. Gasum contributes to the creation of a sustainable energy economy by increasing the supply of Finnish biogas, developing the Nordic gas ecosystem and ensuring the price competitiveness of gas. Gasum imports natural gas to Finland, upgrades biogas and transmits and delivers these for a broad range of uses in energy production, industry, homes, and land and maritime transport. Gasum is the leading supplier of biogas in Finland. It injects biogas into the gas network from Espoo, Kouvola and Lahti, and from 2016 onwards also from Riihimaki. The Gasum subsidiary Skangas is a Nordic liquefied natural gas (LNG) specialist that continues to strengthen the position of LNG and the broader utilization of new solutions in Finland, Sweden and Norway. Skangas has LNG terminals in Ora, Norway, and Lysekil, Sweden. Finland's first LNG import terminal will be completed in Pori in 2016.
"We are proud of the trust that Gasum shows in Poyry via this framework agreement. The agreement is a platform for our co-operation for the years to come, proving our competence and excellent service level in engineering and project services. Through successfully executed projects we continue our strong relationship with Gasum." comments Tuukka Sormunen, Poyry's Head of Chemicals & Biorefining, Northern Europe.
