About Me


Hello there! I’m Navin Shakya, an engineering geologist with over 15 years of experience, particularly focused on hydropower and transmission line projects.

My core strength is the integration of geological science with engineering principles, which equips me to effectively pinpoint and evaluate potential geological hazards during the phases of site investigation and project design. I am adept at fostering teamwork, authoring comprehensive geological assessments, and innovating risk mitigation strategies for complex geological environments. This ensures project continuity, while safeguarding environmental standards and maintaining the resilience of essential infrastructure.

At present, I hold the position of Senior Manager at Energy Business of Golyan.
