TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory hosted a delegation of thirty visitors from Bavaria, Germany on Monday. Dr Martin Hanton, Director, Green Energy and Sustainability, Chris Guy, CEO of TÜV SÜD UK, and Reiner Block, CEO, TÜV SÜD Industry Service, welcomed the delegates which included Hubert Aiwanger, Bavarian Minister of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy.
