A mega contract for Micr’Eau in Chile

Micr’Eau wins with its Chilean partner Cobre y Metales the largest contract to change filter media in the world: 17 changes on the Santiago de Chile region with Aguas Andinas.

This project is established for 3 years and concerns 5 adsorption filtration treatment plants in the capital operated by Aguas Andinas: Quilicura antigua y nueva, San Antonio, Lampa, lo Pinto.

With the support of its Chilean mining services partner, Cobre Y metales (80 people), Micr’Eau and its subsidiary AEC will have to manage the change of more than 300 T of GEH-type adsorbant media saturated with arsenic during drinking water filtration. This new mega-reference is in addition to the 80 installations already followed by the group around the world.
