Kentech Mexico entered into a contract with Dragados Industrial for the Main Civil Foundation Works associated with their US$ 250 Million CCR Platforming (Aromatics Plant).

This project was our first entry into Heavy Civil Works and comprised the excavation, compaction, installation of reinforced steel and concrete pouring for the 8 key foundation structures.

Initially contracted for this scope of works only, as a result of the quality of service provided, we were continually awarded additional scopes of works including completion of the main substation building, execution of pipe rack structures and foundations, underground duct banks etc., with the final contract scope being some 4 times greater than that originally contracted.

In addition to the above, we were awarded the electrical installation works associated with the project.  The scope of works includes MV and LV switchgear and transformers, cable tray, conduit and MV and LC cabling installations. Subsequently we were awarded a final contract on this project to provide the commissioning and start-up services.

In total across the three contracts we delivered over 1.35 million manhours without suffering a lost time incident.


On 30th July 2021, Kentech acquired the Oil and Gas Business of SNC-Lavalin. This led to the exciting relaunch of our new company, now known as Kent.
