This project provides the Qatar Steel Plant in Mesaieed with a new Utilities Gas Production Facility. The project consists of a main compressor area, air purification skids, cold box unit for oxygen production, and an LOX (liquid oxygen) storage tank.

Kentech were commissioned by Air Liquide to provide the detailed design, engineering and erection of the electrical and instrumentation scope of works. The detailed engineering carried out included delivery of the cable schedule, cable sizing, voltage drop calculation, load flow analysis and cable routing. We also delivered the instrument hookups, loop diagrams and block diagrams.

Kentech then went on to carry out the E&I installation works which included the assembly, installation and hookup of the main 66-6.6kV 20MVA transformer, connection of the compressor units, process skids, lighting and small power. The instrumentation scope included equipment installation, hookup and tubing works. We also provided commissioning support at the start-up stage.

The client has commended Kentech’s performance on the project, and this has contributed to an excellent working relationship throughout the job. Kentech have also maintained a perfect safety record on the project, with zero incidents from beginning to end.


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.
