A new kind of energy with John Kent

As we take our business into a new phase, the world is demanding a new kind of energy and a transition away from fossil fuels. We couldn’t think of a better person to unpack this topic with than our newly appointed Chief Energy Transition Officer, John Kent.

Did you know that fossil fuels still supply 84% of world energy? Environmental impact is an increasingly important issue and sustainability is certainly more than just a buzzword.

In this episode of Spark Generation, in conversation with Joanne Hennigan, Head of Kentech’s Marketing & Communications function, John tells us where we stand in the energy transition and what the next key steps will be.


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.
