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 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.
