Technical, economic and social impact

Technically and economically, the existence of a mobile test laboratory means that the conditions for maintaining in operation conforming products in the field of electric energy which is a top field, important for Romania and more and more competing, are assured.
This need becomes a major one, because the metrological control by an accredited laboratory which should apply the label “CONFORMING PRODUCT. Valid until…..” is necessary.
The existence of a mobile laboratory for metrological verifications supports the autochthonous economic agents in supplying electric energy at the qualitative and quantitative parameters required by the market.
The project objectives are converging towards the development of the metrology capability by creating and accrediting new components as well as by forming and training the human resources in the infrastructure of conformity assessment.
This implies trained specialists with permanent opportunities of knowledge improvement, for assuring a clean energy. Appropriate monitoring of power electric equipment will lead also to the avoidance of accidents affecting humans and polluting the environment: air pollution (fires), soil and water pollution with mineral oil, insulating materials etc.
