Piling & Heavy Civils Engineer
Last Updated: 19th February 2018 (over 4 years ago)
My name is Valentin Ciotinga, I'm an internationally experienced civil engineer with heavy civils and piling background.
In the past 15 years I built a solid background working with tier 1 contractors such as CHEVRON, TERRATEST (owned by US fund "PLATINUM EQUITY"), TAKENAKA Corp. and FCC.
I gained my extensive experience in piling (deep foundations) and heavy civils working as Construction/Project Manager on various high rise projects, such as:
- Vidin (Bulgaria) - Calafat (Romania) bridge over the Danube river: piles of 2000mm diameter and 65m depth performed from barge (offshore), load tests including Osterberg Cell testing.
- Metro Line 5 and Line 4 in Bucharest, Romania: D-walls of 1200mm thickness and 43m depth.
- Several windfarms.
- TCO's FGP/WPMP in Prorva, Kazakhstan involving marine dredging, Near Shore excavation of a 1.2km channel (1.5 million cubic meters of land reclamation and 600.000,00 cubic meters of controlled backfilling); construction of new jetties and concrete decks for future accommodating of 500to cranes; precast concrete piling works.
I have a masters degree in civil engineering (deep foundations) and I am computer literate (AutoCad 2D, Primavera, MS Project, PowerPoint, Office).
