RVA Group heads to Russia

RVA’s managing director Richard Vann has been specially invited to address delegates at a new decommissioning event in Moscow.

The inaugural Russian Demolition Forum 2020 will take place at the capital’s Korston Club Hotel from 4-5 February, in association with HAACT, the EDA and PDi.

Having been in talks with the organisers since the earliest conceptual phases, Richard has shared his industry experience to help shape the focus of the event. And now a detailed programme exists for the Russian conference, with RVA Group featuring on the rundown.

Drawing on more than a quarter century of consulting in the decommissioning industry, Richard will take to the stage for a late morning session – ‘Demolition in the UK from the 1980s to 2019’ (11:40-12:05). Other topics set to be covered by sector professionals, include demolition trends, training, safety, plant reuse and project-specific spotlights.

Anyone interested in attending can sign up or discover more information online.

RVA is no stranger to the international events circuit, having been invited to chair the 2nd Annual Decommissioning & Demolition of Industrial Plants 2019 event in Amsterdam, and the 3rd Annual Global Decommissioning and Demolition of Fossil Fuel Power Plants Conference in Prague, not to mention the World Demolition Summit.

Seminars have also been delivered in Barcelona, Berlin and Dublin to name just a few.

This varied geographical presence reflects RVA’s increasingly global reach. Having now completed almost 800 decommissioning, decontamination, dismantling and demolition assignments across the world, the team announced the formation of a new German operation in late 2019. Details of a large Cypriot project have also recently been unveiled with two Middle Eastern schemes also soon-to-be disclosed.

Commenting on the company’s international activity, Richard Vann said: “I have long talked about the global nature of this market, and while international projects naturally present very different cultural, legislative and operational challenges, we have hundreds of years’ combined expertise within our team. This means we’re able to confidently immerse ourselves into these complex engineering works, and our advice is increasingly being sought on the global events scene as a result.”
