Volga-Dnepr Group has appointed Vasiliy Zhukov as its new global director of energy & heavy machinery to spearhead its continued growth in these major sectors.
Zhukov holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and a Master’s Degree in Project Management and Business Engineering.
Prior to joining Volga-Dnepr in 2015, he spent five years working for one of Russia’s leading power engineering and construction corporations, responsible for developing relations with existing power and energy clients as well as attracting new customers within the Middle East and North Africa region.
He is the Group’s fourth Global Industry Director, joining:
• Axel Kaldschmidt, global director, aerospace Industry

Commenting on his new role, he said: “At Volga-Dnepr Group we are constantly developing relationships with original equipment manufacturers in power and heavy machinery in order to learn more about their transportation and logistics challenges.
"When it comes to power plant unit repairs, for example, time is money so our customers value the fast and reliable response we can deliver.
“In recent years, renewables have become an important part in governments’ national energy strategies all over the world.
"We understand our customers’ commitment to diversifying the domestic energy mix with low carbon power generation and are able to support this by providing timely solutions for the transportation of oversize and heavy equipment by air such as hydroturbine runners, compact solar panels and even wind turbine blades."
Power and energy sector contributes some 7% of the Group’s annual revenues.
