Selected to VolgaHydro's board by the shareholders were:

  • Mikhail Mantrov, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board RusHydro;

  • Maxim Zavalko, Head of Corporate Governance department of RusHydro;
  • Dr. Leopold Heninger, CEO and President of Voith Hydro;

  • Josef Gaschl, Member of the Board of Directors of Voith Hydro.

The joint venture's audit committee was also elected, Rushydro said, with regulations for it and the board also being approved.

RusHydro (LSE: HYDR) holds a share worth 50% plus one ruble, while Voith controls the remainder. The operation will be located in Balakovo City. VolgaHydro is expected to begin producing equipment in December 2015 before reaching its full capacity in 2020.
