Kentech Qatar Reaches 3 Million Safe Manhours on Pearl Shell GTL

We are delighted to announce that the Kentech teams working on the Pearl Shell GTL site in Qatar have reached the milestone of 3 million manhours delivered without an LTI. Kentech were awarded both the E&I and HVAC maintenance contracts in 2013. In 2014 and 2015 we successfully delivered Major Turnarounds 1 and 2. In 2016 we provided key E&I support services for critical plant repairs during an unplanned shutdown. With a peak manpower of over 450 workers, the teams have consistently demonstrated Kentech’s commitment to safe working standards which has culminated in this outstanding achievement.  Well done to everyone involved and keep up the exemplary standards which will carry us to our next major milestone and beyond.

Kentech CEO Announces Some Strategic Changes to the Board

Kentech announces that as a result of conflicting work pressures, David Greer will be departing from the Board as the Chairman of Kentech Corporate Holdings. David joined the Kentech board as Chairman in summer 2014 and he has participated extensively in both the development of the Board and the company during his tenure. He has been able to bring his broad industry knowledge and expertise into the Board discussion in addition to providing both the challenge and support that one can expect within the Board. David’s workload and travel commitments linked to his executive role in Serco means that he can no longer devote the time and energy required to fulfill the role as Chairman of Kentech and he has expressed his regret at having to leave the Company at this exciting stage of its evolution and wishes the company every success going forward.
