“I am delighted to report that Kentz has delivered another strong performance in the first half of 2012,” chief executive Christian Brown said. “We have achieved increases in revenue, profits and cash flow generated during the period and I am confident that we can deliver full year results in line with market expectations.
During the period under review, Kentz was awarded the $128 million contract for Syncrude's Aurora North Mine Relocation project, expanding its Canadian operations.
It also won a 12-month contract for integrated commissioning services on the Queensland Curtis project in Australia, which comes with an option to extend the contract for a further two years.
