Aegion subsidiary Insituform has been awarded a US$10.6 million sewer rehabilitation contract in the US.
Insituform Technologies has been awarded a contract by the City of Lawrence in Massachusetts, US for the rehabilitation of nearly 13 km of 8–54 inch (204–1,372 mm) diameter wastewater pipelines.
The pipes, which will be relined using Insituform® cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) technology, are located in residential, commercial and industrial areas alongside the Merrimack River.
CIPP was selected to avoid disruptive excavations and sewer shutdowns in high traffic areas as well as the riverfront.
During the project, Insituform will act as the general contractor, managing CIPP installation and all other aspects of the development.
Approximately 60 per cent of the project will be performed by established local subcontractors, including National Water Main, P. Gioioso & Sons, Ted Berry Company and Tasco Construction.
“We have a strong operations team in the northeast that is ready to successfully execute this project,” said Aegion President and CEO Charles Gordon.
“In addition to the installation of CIPP, our team will also oversee the clean and CCTV, manhole rehabilitation, traffic control, and other items in the scope on this project.
“We have dedicated 10 personnel to this project and will work closely with the City of Lawrence throughout the project to ensure its success.”
The project is anticipated to begin in April 2019 and is scheduled for completion within two years.
