MRTC Upgrades its Human and Technical Capacity
The Materials Research and Testing Centre (MRTC) is ambitious in upgrading its services to respond to the infrastructure development, the technological advancement and the time bound demand. Thus it decided to gear itself up for more customer satisfaction. On one hand the equipment of MRTC needed to be overhauled and on the other hand its employees should be capacitated in maintenance and repair.
With the above in mind, the Centre entered into an agreement with MAFECON PLC for the purpose of machine and equipment repair, routine service and the subsequent training of the technical staff. In addition a technical specification document for the purchase of a geo-technical drilling rig should be prepared. As a result, despite a couple of ups and downs with regards to the availability of spare parts and the time needed to acquire them various goals were successfully achieved so far e.g. regarding the upgrading of the Universal Testing Machine or the Direct Shear Testing Machine.
