Aegion Corporation Awarded Contract from City of Montreal Valued at $13.4 Million
Aegion Corporation has announced its subsidiary, Insituform Technologies Limited (“Insituform Canada”), has been awarded a $13.4 million (contract from the City of Montreal, Quebec, Canada to rehabilitate pipelines up to 130 years old, located mostly in residential areas in boroughs throughout the city.
Insituform Canada will rehabilitate approximately 11 miles of egg-shaped brick pipelines and 10-inch to 42-inch diameter combined sewer system pipelines using its air inversion steam cure installation method, which reduces energy usage during installation by approximately 95 percent. In addition, Insituform Canada will internally reinstate approximately 3,400 service laterals using robotic cutters. In order to meet the demands of this project, Insituform expects to add up to three new positions at its Montreal wet out plant.
Ken Foster, President of Insituform Canada, said, “Since opening our office here in 2010, we have been awarded nine contracts from the City of Montreal with a combined value of over $33 million and have rehabilitated over 16 miles of pipelines throughout the city and its boroughs. Insituform Canada is proud to continue its partnership with the City of Montreal and remains committed to providing a superior installation with minimal disruption to this community.”
Work on the project is expected to begin immediately and be completed by May 2015.
