30 November 2016, 10:00 EET

FORTUM CORPORATION PRESS RELEASE 30 NOVEMBER 2016

Fortum will supply secondary measure technology to reduce the nitrogen
emissions (SNCR – Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction) on two boilers at a
coal-fired power plant in Krakow, Poland owned by EDF Group. The installations
will be erected in years 2017 (one boiler) and 2018 (second boiler).

“The delivery is a continuation of the combustion technology renewal project
implemented at the Krakow power plant for which Fortum has provided expert
services and technology. The systems delivered by Fortum will bring the
nitrogen emissions of the Krakow power plant to clearly below the European
Union’s new emissions norms that will take effect in 2018,” says Heikki
Andersson, Vice President, Power Solutions, Fortum.

Since 2013, Fortum has made service-agreements with EDF Group worth nearly EUR
100 million, including the new agreements. In addition to Krakow, deliveries
have also been made to the Wroclaw power plant.

Development and deliveries of emissions-reducing combustion technologies and
the related expert services are part of Fortum’s international offering. The
upgrades are based on Fortum and MHPS’s (former Babcock-Hitachi) more than 20
years of collaboration in product development of environmentally friendly
combustion technology.

“For more than 20 years, we have delivered hundreds of nitrogen oxide-reducing
low-NOx burners to power plants around the world. Many of the deliveries are
based on long-term collaboration with our customer companies. For example,
collaboration with the Krakow power plant started back in the mid-1990s”
Heikki Andersson notes.
