Volkan Yakut

Senior Welding Engineer

I’m a Mechanical Engineer and International Welding Engineer with more than 15 years’ global experience working in quality and production departments. I also have an MSc and doctoral degree related to manufacturing engineering.

My primary focus has always been in the field of welding technologies and non-destructive testing, and I specialise in Ultrasonic, Radiographic, Magnetic Particle, Penetration and Visual Testing.

My experience encompasses a wide range of fields, from lecturing at university to holding various management positions in manufacturing and construction companies. Throughout my career I’ve also been involved with large scale construction projects such as power and cement plants, and shipyards in Russia, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. I’ve also worked in the Turkish defense industry for their new generation of main battle tank production project.

I’ve always had a keen interest in following new technological developments in the fields of welding and non-destructive testing, and bring this to my Welding Centre team.

I’m proud that my multi-functional engineering experience will contribute to the local metal community at the highest level as part of HERA.
