World Health Organization (WHO) advises to avoid mass gatherings in Asian countries


Traditionally, hep enjoys the opportunity to present its services at the largest Japanese photovoltaics trade show "PV Expo Japan", which takes places from February 26 through 28 in Tokyo.

hep's board of management takes the health and security of its employees very serious and therefore decided to avoid potential risk to exposure by recalling participation.
