Kentz establishes Qatar presence
Announcement comes during Irish trade mission
Kentz Corporation has announced the establishment of Kentz Engineering International W.L.L. in Doha.
The company is a subsidiary of Kentz Engineering International Ireland and was locally registered in December 2013 within Qatar.
The announcement was made during the Enterprise Ireland Trade and Investment Mission to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and UAE.
Kentz Engineering International will offer specialised services in the oil and gas and transportation and infrastructure markets in Qatar.
They will include front-end engineering and design studies, detailed design, project management and cost management services with a multi-discipline service.
Speaking in Doha during his trade mission to Qatar, the Taoiseach Enda Kenny, said: “The opening of this new operation in Qatar is a significant achievement, underpinning the tremendous success that Kentz has had in winning significant contracts to date in Qatar.
"It is a clear demonstration of the company's commitment to the market and this move will allow them to focus on growing and developing further sales in the region.”
Kentz initially started operations in Qatar in 1997 working on construction projects for Qatar Petroleum.
Notable current projects include the SIDRA Medical and Research Centre Hospital-MEP contract for Qatar Foundation, the recently awarded Qatar Petroleum EPIC project for Scada and Cathodic Protection and the Qatar SHELL Integrity Improvement Project.
