United Pipeline Systems Awarded $10.9 Million Contract for Work on Mining Project

SAINT LOUIS, MO, January 13, 2010 – Insituform Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq Global Select Market: INSU) announced today that United Pipeline Systems, a division of Insituform, has been awarded a $10.9 million contract for the supply and installation of its Tite Liner® solution on mining pipelines for the Sino Iron Ore project located in Western Australia.

United anticipates work on the project will commence in April 2010 and be completed by the end of July 2010. United expects to install more than 18.5 miles of its Tite Liner® solution on a new 32-inch steel magnetite concentrate pipeline. Tite Liner® is a high-density polyethylene liner designed to resist the abrasion and corrosion of slurry pipelines in energy and mining applications.

The Sino Iron Ore project will be one of the world’s largest mines and the first of its kind in Western Australia once it is operational. The mine will produce magnetite which, when used to manufacture steel, uses less carbon dioxide compared with other materials resulting in a more environmentally friendly manufacturing process.

Dorwin Hawn, Insituform’s Senior Vice President, Energy and Mining said, “We applaud Sino Iron’s commitment to invest in a long-term solution to ensure the integrity of its pipelines over time.”
