KANSAS CITY, Jan. 25, 2006 -- CST Industries Inc. announces the contract signing with Keppel Seghers Engineering Singapore Pte. Ltd. for the supply and installation of two each 22,000 cubic meter finished water storage tanks for Keppel Seghers' Ulu Pandan NEWater™ DBOO project in Singapore. In Singapore, the ultra clean water reclaimed from used water by means of advanced membrane technology is called new water. The Keppel Segher's plant will produce 25 mgd of this water. It meets international standards for potable and drinking water, and will be used largely for industrial use with a small amount going into reservoirs for indirect potable use.

The tank contract covers the design, supply, fabrication, and delivery to site, installation and commissioning of the two pre-engineered and pre-fabricated sectional steel storage tanks. Each tank will have a nominal working capacity of 22,000 cubic meters and is 52 meters in diameter with a wall height of 11.5 meters. Each tank will feature an aluminium geodesic clear-span dome roof system. The tank and dome systems will be supplied by Engineered Storage Products Company of DeKalb, IL. Engineered Storage Products Company is an operating division of CST Industries.

The tank wall sheets will be internally coated with Engineered Storage Products Company's proprietary Kuo-Lon® modified epoxy coating system. This state-of-the-art coating is specifically designed to minimize long-term maintenance requirements, a crucial issue for the Keppel Seghers' 20 year DBOO contract.
