Aegion Corporation Awarded $5.0 Million Contract From The Metropolitan District In Hartford, Connecticut

Stocks in this article: AEGN

Aegion Corporation (“Aegion” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq Global Select Market: AEGN) today announced that its subsidiary, Insituform Technologies, LLC (“Insituform”), has been awarded a contract valued at approximately $5.0 million from The Metropolitan District located in Hartford, Connecticut to install over 10 miles of Insituform® CIPP (cured-in-place pipe) in small- and medium-diameter wastewater pipelines.

The Metropolitan District, which serves the greater Hartford area, is aggressively rehabilitating its wastewater pipelines in compliance with an Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) consent decree that expires in 2018. Since 2005, Insituform has received more than $30 million in CIPP contracts from The Metropolitan District and has installed Insituform® CIPP in approximately 140 miles of wastewater pipelines throughout the Hartford area.

Jeff Kowal, Vice President and General Manager of Insituform’s East Region, said, “Over the past several years, we have worked to establish strong relationships, not only with The Metropolitan District, but also with design engineering firms and local contractors. We are committed to working with local minority subcontractors as part of the requirements of this project and expect to continue to provide rehabilitation solutions to The Metropolitan District on future projects.”

The project is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2013 and to be completed within one year from the start date. Insituform® CIPP will be installed in neighborhoods, through a park, in public golf courses, next to a public swimming pool and in other areas that are environmentally sensitive. It is expected that the installation method of Insituform® CIPP will allow the community of Hartford to experience little to no disruption throughout this project.
