Corrpro Secures $5.3 Million (US) Work Order for Pipeline Integrity Program

St. Louis, MO, August 05, 2010 –- Insituform Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq Global Select Market: INSU) today announced that its subsidiary, Corrpro Canada, Inc. (“Corrpro”) has received work orders with a combined value of $5.3 million (US) from TransCanada Corporation (TransCanada) as part of its three-year term contract for cathodic protection.

Corrpro will supply and install cathodic protection systems for existing TransCanada pipelines across Canada. The majority of the materials will be manufactured in Corrpro’s production facility located in Edmonton, Alberta. It is expected that local crews from the nine Corrpro offices across Canada will be utilized for geographic efficiency.

Corrpro’s business relationships and work programs with TransCanada have been ongoing for over 10 years with an estimated combined value of approximately $25 million (US). Corrpro’s solutions are instrumental in effectively maintaining pipeline integrity for its customers. Corrpro will provide cathodic protection systems for TransCanada’s existing Canadian pipelines. Cathodic protection mitigates the adverse effects due to soil side external corrosion.

Bruce Wiskel, President of Corrpro Canada said, “We continue to provide the highest quality cathodic protection materials, construction installation and engineering services to ensure corrosion protection for oil and gas pipelines. This is recognized by our ongoing work and relationships with the major oil and gas pipeline transmission companies and oil and gas production companies in Canada. Through close interaction with TransCanada’s engineering, project management, procurement and safety staff, Corrpro anticipates we will continue our history of outstanding safety and performance records on this project.”

Corrpro expects to complete this portion of the work by November 2010.
