Training & upskilling is the key to leaving a lasting legacy


The 9th largest country in the world. And home to some of our biggest projects.

Sometimes the challenges we set ourselves are pretty big too.

As we kicked off our latest project in Kazakhstan, we set ourselves ambitious targets to transition our teams for readiness and upskill at the same time – the first steps in leaving a legacy of the next generation of commissioning experts.

In only 2 weeks, with immense efforts from our technical experts, Operations, HSSEQ and HR teams, we successfully introduced our new Verification of Competency (VoC) process for 250+ our Technicians in the new commissioning environment. That’s in-depth technical competence assessments and theoretical and practical training, followed by examination and certification.

VoC’s are key to setting our people up for success with the skills and knowledge to safely and competently do their jobs.

Led by our Training & Development Manager in Kazakhstan, Indira Kadyrkhanova : “Our VoC process ensures we continue delivering excellence to our clients, but more than that, I am proud as a Kazakh national to know we are investing in the future of our country by upskilling Kazakh people”

On Tuesday 9th February 2021, we announced an agreement to acquire the oil & gas business of SNC-Lavalin’s Resources Division.

This business includes people and assets brought together through their acquisition of the Kentz and other energy services businesses. This transaction marks an exciting, ground-breaking development for Kentech to reinforce our position as a leading integrated energy services provider and introduces us to the renewable / clean power marketplace. We now move forward together with a global network of more than 10,000 professionals united by a commitment of common values and strong partnerships with clients from across the world.

By investing now, we are strategically positioning the company to take advantage of the next cycle of growth.

Our complementary businesses will join forces, creating a stronger offering across the full asset life cycle – from consulting to design and build, commissioning and start-up, through to maintenance, modification and turnaround, as well as decommissioning services.
