Two Aegion Corporation subsidiaries – Insituform Technologies and United Pipeline Systems – have been awarded major contracts valuing US$6.9 million and US$11 million respectively.
Insituform Technologies has been awarded a wastewater pipeline rehabilitation contract valued at US$6.9 million in Baltimore County, Maryland.
The project will rehabilitate more than 7,011 m of 30–60 inch (762–1,524 mm) wastewater pipelines and will add to the several other large projects Insituform has successfully completed in Baltimore County over the past decade, totalling nearly US$17 million.
The Baltimore pipeline rehabilitation installation will begin in November 2019.
United Special Technical Services (USTS), a joint venture between Aegion subsidiary United Pipeline Systems (51 per cent interest) and Special Technical Services of Oman, has also earned two rehabilitation contracts in the Middle East using the Tite Liner® system.
The contracts were awarded by local contractors working for large oil and gas pipeline operator in Saudi Arabia and have a combined value of US$11 million.
More than 40 km of 42 inch (1,067 mm) diameter seawater transport pipelines will be rehabilitated, marking the largest pipe diameter to be lined in the Middle East since United’s Tite Liner system was introduced to the region.
Work on both contracts is expected to begin in late 2019 and will create approximately 50 new jobs, including technicians, machine operators and supervisors.
It is anticipated that the project will be completed in late 2021.
