Aegion Corp, through its subsidiary Insituform Technologies, has secured a $16.3m contract from the Trinity River Authority of Texas for a sewer project in the City of Irving, Texas, US.

The project includes rehabilitation of over 17,200ft of 96-inch sewer pipelines in the City of Irving.

To execute the sewer project, Insituform will use its Insituform iPlus Composite product, which is designed and engineered for medium- to large-diameter pipelines.

Insituform vice president and general manager Jeffrey Kowal said after a thorough, competitive bid process, Insituform’s iPlus Composite product was selected over a competing spiral-wound pipeline system and traditional CIPP because of its superior performance characteristics and its competitive price.

"Insituform® iPlus® Composite provides added structural enhancements and corrosion resistance that meet and, in most instances, exceed the design requirements of ASTM F-1216," Kowal said.

"We look forward to working with the Trinity River Authority to complete this project within the schedule that has been established. Insituform is an industry leader in the rehabilitation of large diameter pipelines, having rehabilitated over 585,000 feet of large diameter (greater than 36 inches) pipe since 2007."

Work on the project is expected to begin in this month and to be completed during 2014.

The Trinity River Authority of Texas is a conservation and reclamation district providing water and wastewater treatment, along with recreation and reservoir facilities, for municipalities within the nearly 18,000m² Trinity River basin.

Insituform is engaged in the development and installation of technologies and services for rehabilitating sewer, water and other underground piping systems without digging or disruption.
