Description

The purpose of UG211 is to prepare the specifications for all the projects in the TRAMAQ programme apart from UG216 and UG216A. The specifications are being used as a basis for the tendering procedures for each of the projects. When investigations for all the individual projects have been completed the project will prepare a report drawing together the results.
