Insituform Signs $8.1 Million Contract with Richmond, Va.
Insituform Technologies Inc. recently announced that it has renewed its term contract with the City of Richmond, Va. Valued at up to $8.1 million, this is the third year of a five-year renewable contract and marks one of Insituform’s largest contracts to date from the City of Richmond.
Insituform first worked with Richmond in the mid-1980s. Under this contract, Insituform will rehabilitate small- and large-diameter wastewater pipelines with Insituform cured-in-place pipe (CIPP). Work on this project was scheduled to begin in May.
In addition to self-performing the CIPP installations, Insituform will employ locally owned subcontractors to perform CCTV, manhole rehabilitation and other utility services. Insituform CIPP is a jointless pipe-within-a-pipe used to rehabilitate wastewater pipelines ranging in diameter from 6 to 96 in. Rehabilitating wastewater pipelines with Insituform) CIPP reduces infiltration, restores structural integrity and increases flow capacity without disruption to communities, typically at a lower cost than dig-and-replace solutions.
