Kentz Corporation Limited (LSE: KENZ), the holding company of the Kentz engineering and construction group, is pleased to announce that it has secured a further scope of work on the telecommunications contract for the Fort Hills Oil Sands Project in Canada.

Kentz Canada Ltd is the main telecom contractor for the project. The scope has been extended to include full engineering, design and procurement of the project telecommunication systems. This CAD$70m (US$64m) order will incorporate reliable and modern state-of-the-art technologies, with a proven track record to ensure the effective construction and operation of the plant site for the permanent information technology infrastructure. Having been given the original award in March 2013, the project will be running to July 2017 and is being executed out of Kentz's Calgary engineering centre of excellence in Alberta, one of Kentz's five regional centres.

Tush Doshi, Group President, Engineering and Projects Business Unit, for Kentz commented:

"With our Technical Support Services Business Unit having worked on the Fort Hills Project over the course of the last year, we are delighted to be awarded additional remit to the original contract and bring our Engineering and Projects capability into play. This is an exciting project for Kentz, not only is it one of our core areas of our key expertise; providing engineering solutions to complex telecoms challenges, but it demonstrates the continued growth of our Canadian business over the past five years and the value of offering a broad range of services."
