Kentz signs three long-term EPC framework agreements in Southern Africa

London, 8 August 2013 - Kentz Corporation Limited (LSE: KENZ), the holding company of the Kentz engineering and construction group, is pleased to announce the recent signing by its Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) Business Unit of three long-term framework agreements with blue-chip international companies.

The contracts include two EPCm (EPC management) 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, Chief Operating Officer, 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."
