Sulphur Handling Facilities Project – MAA Refinery

Return to the previous page. Go back

The Sulphur Handling Facilities Project (SHFP) is designed to cater for the future additional Sulphur quantities from across KNPC sites resulting from Sulphur extraction.  The SHFP existing facilities have been revamped to meet the latest design parameters, with a total capacity of 9000 t/y.

Daelim Industrial was awarded the EPC contract for the repair and expansion of sulphur processing facilities at the Mina Al-Ahmadi refinery.

Kentech were successfully executing a contract with Daelim on the MAA Refinery, delivering E&I completions on LPG Train 4 (subsequently followed by a shutdown contract on the same facility), when they awarded us the E&I construction works on new SHFP plant facilities.  During the course of this initial project, our team executed 1.8 million manhours over a two and a half year period with a peak of 355 men on site.

Following successful completion of this project and having become a trusted partner to Daelim during this time, we were subsequently awarded an E&I construction contract and SAT readiness services on the revamp of the existing facilities, mainly concentrated on the FUP, Ship Loader, RMP, Granulation Units and Sulphur Conveyors.  Our team successfully executed an additional 1 million manhours over a two year period with a peak of 206 men on site.


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.
