FLOW INTERNATIONAL AWARDED $13-MILLION CONTRACT FOR PARKING GARAGE AT JOHN F. KENNEDY CENTER FOR PERFORMING ARTS

 KENT, Wash., Nov. 30 ~PRNewswire~ -- The National Park Service has awarded a $13-million contract to a subsidiary of Flow International Corp. (NASDAQ: FLOW) to rehabilitate the parking garage under the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., FLOW announced today.
 The project is the largest hydrodemolition contract ever awarded. FLOW will utilize its proprietary HydroMilling(R) process, which removes delaminated concrete from parking garages and bridge decks with ultrahigh-pressure water.
 Work on the three-level 600,000-square-foot parking garage is expected to begin within two to three weeks and take three to four years to complete. The concrete in the 20-year-old facility has deteriorated because of roadway salt and heavy use. It will be replaced by a new state-of-the-art micro-silica concrete overlay.
 "We're delighted to be the contractor on the year's premier parking garage restoration project," Ronald W. Tarrant, president and chief executive officer, said. FLOW was the hydrodemolition subcontractor on the first phase of the Kennedy Center restoration project, which was completed in the summer of 1991.
 "FLOW demonstrated its capabilities to produce quality results at a rapid pace on the first phase, and we're pleased to be able to work with them again," said O. Charles Guedelhoefer II, principal of Raths, Raths & Johnson Inc., design engineers for the Kennedy Center.
 "In the HydroMilling process, a rotating multiple-jet nozzle, quickly and efficiently removes concrete to precise depths without damage to the underlying rebar or remaining concrete," Thomas A. Cross, vice president and chief financial officer said. "Traditional methods of removal take twice as long to complete."
 Flow International Corp. is the world's leading manufacturer of ultrahigh-pressure waterjets for industrial cutting, cleaning and HydroMilling services, and North America's leading supplier of power- driven scaffolding systems.
