3 EPC framework agreements in Africa

The Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) business unit of Kentz Corporation, the holding company of the Kentz engineering and construction group, has signed three long-term framework agreements with blue-chip international companies.

The contracts include two EPC management (EPCm) services agreements with an international oil major to provide engineering solutions on a task-order basis. In addition, the award of an EPCm services contract for a Southern African Power Utility, where Kentz will provide engineering solutions on a task order basis.

Tush Doshi, COO, EPC for Kentz commented: "The initiatives we have put in place to strengthen and broaden our EPC capabilities have shown considerable promise as they begin to bed in, and we are delighted to see further wins for our EPC division in Africa. Framework agreements allow for the provision of services as required and on an immediate basis, rather than through submitting tenders for individual elements as they are required."

Carl Dyer, regional managing director, Africa of Kentz commented, "These three awards further demonstrate Kentz's strength in the African region and our commitment to Southern Africa. It is particularly pleasing to be able to announce such awards right on the back of key wins on both the Nacala project in Mozambique with Vale, and the New Multi-Product Pipeline (NMPP) project in South Africa with Transnet."
