Insituform Technologies, Inc. has received a contract award for US$4 million to rehabilitate over 11,000 feet of drinking water pipelines in Victoria, British Columbia. Work on this project, which includes 12-inch and 20-inch diameter pipelines, is expected to be completed by early 2011.
In other news, Insituform has opened a new office in Montreal to meet increased demand for both sewer and water pipeline rehabilitation in the Eastern Canadian province. Backlog for the newly opened Quebec office exceeds US$3 million and includes nearly US$2 million for projects involving the InsituMain(TM) System, a proprietary system used to rehabilitate drinking water pipelines.
It is expected that Insituform will add accounting staff, project managers, engineers and crew personnel to manage the operations and installations of its projects in Quebec.
