International Newsletter February 2018



Dear all,

A major solar power plant is set to be built in the Aswan region of Egypt, and TÜV NORD is involved in the project. Also in this edition of the newsletter we report on the first Digital Experts to have completed their training, as well as taking a look at a digitalisation project of TÜV NORD Mobilität in China and focusing on data security in clouds in Poland.

We hope you enjoy reading it! As always, your input on our output is very much appreciated. Please get in touch with us; you can find our address in the footer.

Best regards,

Irena Tsagurnis & Jochen May
Corporate Communications
