About the case
Despite far-reaching and extensive expertise, there is no blueprint for this: a special machine, designed and tested at home, has to be set up at a destination on foreign terrain – with previously uninvolved players and subcontractors. Irregularities are inevitable. However, the machine manufacturer is responsible for the timely and accurate commissioning.
