Pekka Veisto brings new expertise to CTS metal & mining business area

Pekka Veisto (M.Sc.) has started working in CTS Engtec as a Construction Manager and Project Director from 8th of October.

Pekka Veisto strengthens CTS’ metal and mining business operations as a qualified expert in construction. He has more than 30 years of experience in construction and management of demanding design projects in mining and other heavy industries. During his career Pekka has worked, among other, for Northland Mines Oy, Destia and Rautaruukki.

At the beginning of his career contractor work brought Pekka, among other, to Libya, Irak and Russian Kostomuksha. During his years of work in Rautaruukki Pekka has received wide experience in project and construction-related tasks.

From 2007 Pekka worked in Destia, where his responsibilities comprised development of mining business area operations as well as construction assignments. Geographically his remit included, among other, Northern Sweden and Northern Norway where subsidiaries were established.  

In 2010 Pekka transferred to Hannukainen project of Northland Mines where he carried out infrastracture and construction feasibility studies.

Strengthening of EPCM-delivery

Raimo Vikstedt, Director of CTS Engtec’s metal and mining business area, says that Pekka Veisto´s employment will enhance mining sector comprehensive EPCM-delivery services by strengthening infrastructure and industrial construction.

- We are able to offer wider overall design deliveries and with the same support design activities of the whole company. In addition, client’s overall efficiency is improved, says Raimo Vikstedt.

Pekka Veisto thinks that mining area perspectives are quite promising.

- However, on the other hand, the area’s negative publicity in terms of environmental aspects and, for instance, uranium issues can affect the permitting process by slowing it down, says Pekka Veisto.

- Partly this is stipulated with the growing skills and knowledge of the authorities, since before Talvivaara almost one generation of time has passed from the last large mine construction.

- National knowledge has grown considerably, and one of the future crucial matters is how well interests and opinions of local citizens will be paid attention to and considered at the permitting stage, notes Pekka.

CTS Engtec has recently published new environmental technology services portfolio for metal and mining sector. 

Pekka Veisto is working in CTS’ office in Oulu.
