Pestana - Electrical Engineer - Ukraine

Luis Pestana



Electrical Engineer


I concluded my studies in 2006, having worked before that in 2004 as an electrical designer. I also taught some electricity classes during the time leading up to my graduation. Shortly after I concluded my studies I started working for Siemens as a Project Manager. On small projects I was responsible for a wide range of tasks such as project management, electrical design, site management and so on.
On larger projects, I mostly did site management and electrical design.
I have worked on projects in different kinds of industries: shipyards, water treatment plants, food and beverage, but mostly mining.

Currently, I’m working in the Ukraine near Chernobyl as a Senior Electrical Engineer doing mostly electrical design for a new confinement arch for reactor 4 of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.

I am very determined, dynamic and as eager to learn as to share the knowledge I have gained these past few years.
