Testimonials

Mr Amit Kumar Singh, Project Co-ordinator, EMS Infracon, SIDCUL

“Currently, we are facing very serious pollution problems in all forms; water, air, noise etc. In fact, we are very concerned about the measures that need to be taken. Nonetheless there are various means to deal with the problems. But all these means need to be checked at highest level to establish its work efficiency and feasibility. The same applies in case of Online Monitoring Systems (OMS), which is being taken up by GIZ now. We sincerely hope that the training yields positive results.”

 

Mr Hitesh Sharma, Plant Manager -Mayuapuri CETP Society

“Training programme on continuous/online monitoring system is a good initiative taken by GIZ to provide information about online monitoring system. Topics learnt will be useful for operating online monitoring in CETP as per government regulations.”
