Solemn handover of length measurement laboratory within Czech development project
04.06.2012 / 07:35
On May 31, 2012 the Czech Ambassador V. Jílek and the Chairman of MASM G. Gantumur solemnly opened a new length measurement laboratory.
On May 31, 2012 a solemn ceremony of opening new laboratory for length measurement took place. The laboratory was built within the scope of Czech development project “Improvements in Mongolian time and frequency standards, creation of national primary standard for length measurement” in the Mongolian Agency for Standardization and Metrology (MASM) in Ulaanbaatar. The implementer was the Czech Office for Standards, Metrology and Testing (ÚNMZ) in cooperation with the Czech Metrology Institute (ČMI).
The Czech Ambassador V. Jílek, Chairman of MASM G. Gantumur, Secretary of Czech Embassy P. Žáková, Deputy Chairman of ÚNMZ V. Pokorný, Head of Laboratories Department of ČMI F. Dvořáček and others attended this occasion. Media were also present. The Ambassador expressed the satisfaction that the Czech Republic continues to fulfill the wishes of Mongolian side to follow the European norms and standards; after the study tour of Mongolian experts in the year 2010 we continue with this “tangible” project. He expressed the wish to continue the mutual cooperation not only on the bilateral level, but also on the multilateral within the EU projects aimed at standards. G. Gantumur thanked gratefully for the Czech government aid and stated that broader cooperation is also his wish.
The above mentioned project will be implemented from 2011 to 2013 in the form of equipment deliveries and trainings with focus on length and time. The majority of equipment was up to now rather old and insufficient. Therefore, the maximum utilization can be expected, because precise measurement of length, dimensions, geometrical features, form deviations is critical for every industry and construction.
