TMM Group Secures Important Contract Extension

We are delighted to announce that Qatar Shell have extended our HVAC & E&I maintenance contracts on the Shell GTL Plant for a further two years. The Qatar Shell GTL Plant is the world’s largest gas to liquids plant.  Our work on these strategic maintenance contracts began at the end of 2013 and since then our team has worked tirelessly to ensure that all threats to the availability of the plant’s equipment and systems are mitigated by reducing the system and equipment failure rate and optimizing the frequency of routine maintenance efforts. Our team performs regular reviews of planning and execution strategies in order to optimize efficient execution and driving commercial savings for Qatar Shell.  This has included exercises to drive improvements in HSSE performance, reducing waste (idle time) and increase Hands on Tools Time and worker productivity. With a total manpower of over 250 staff, the teams have consistently demonstrated Kentech’s commitment to safe working standards which has culminated in over 4.8 million safe man-hours being delivered on the project to date. The whole team is excited to continue providing a world-class maintenance service to Qatar Shell. Our new Value Delivery Model will fundamentally change how we bring value to our client going forward, with its focus on implementing best in class technical, operational and performance excellence. This is what it is all about for us.  Nurturing relationships with key clients, something we have cherished with Qatar Shell since our first project with them back in 2007.  The team’s philosophy of going above and beyond to deliver outstanding HSE, quality and performance standards come what may is what has firmly cemented us as Qatar Shell’s maintenance partner of choice, something we are immensely proud of. Phil Johnson, Kentech’s Global Service Line Director for TMM commented “This award is testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved with this project over the last 6 years and proof that our new Value Delivery Model is seen as a value add by our key clients”.

Kentech Appoints New Global Service Line Director for TMM

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Phil Johnson as Global Service Line Director for Turnaround, Maintenance & Modifications (TMM).  Phil and the TMM global team have worked tirelessly to complete Kentech’s TMM Value Proposition and are now excited to bring a better, digital approach to asset performance management, something we believe delivers an offering like no others in the marketplace. With a background in electrical engineering and a long career history, the last 7 years of which have involved heading up Kentech’s operations in Asia Pacific, Phil is excited to take on the challenge in this next step of his successful career.  He commented “Kentech is a company made up of long serving employees who genuinely believe in the ability of our core values to generate value for all our stakeholders, with our clients sitting front and centre. The TMM team is extremely strong, and growing every day.  With a highly skilled, digitally enabled workforce, a network of industry experts and an extensive body of knowledge, we can confidently say that we can achieve more for our clients at a lower cost”. Commenting on the developments within the TMM service line, John Gilley, Kentech COO, said “When the TMM Global Director position became available, we ran a process to find a replacement but there was always going to be only one winner.  Having worked with Phil for over 7 years and witnessed the effects he has on projects and regions under his charge, I had little doubt that he would inject the same energy into a Global Service Line.  Phil brings with him a hard but fair attitude and instils a culture of empowerment and respect in every team he has nurtured”. We would like to wish Phil and his team every success for the future in Kentech.
