At the BIG event organised by bpifrance in Paris, Micr’Eau Chairman Pascal Guasp was interviewed on the subject of international development.
The Micr’Eau group has two subsidiaries in Chile, one linked to the construction of its drinking water and biogas units, Micr’Eau-AEC, and a second company, ABM, linked to services and in particular to mining companies.
As part of these consulting and support missions, ABM is currently carrying out an audit for the Canadian company Teck, copper producer on the Quebrada Blanca 2 site at 4500 m altitude in northern Chile (near the Bolivian border) to improve the operation and maintenance of the drinking water treatment unit supplying the camp of more than 5000 miners.
Other studies and technical and logistical support projects are being set up, in particular with the companies Cobre y Metales (catodo verde project) and the lithium group SQM near Antofagasta.
ABM (Andes Bio Medio) wins a technical expertise contract with the Canadian mining group Teck in Chile on the Quebrada Blanca 2 site
On this copper mine where the largest mining investment in South America of the decade was made ($ 5 billion) to extract and produce copper at 4500m altitude, the Canadian group Teck has entrusted an expertise on water to ABM our subsidiary services in Chile to determine the best possible maintenance on its drinking water units (150 m3 / h including iron / manganese treatment, arsenic treatment and reverse osmosis followed by remineralization).
Thanks to our geographical location in the north of the country (Antofagasta region), ABM is ideally placed to serve its mining customers (Lithium, Copper). Above is the mining camp of its Chilean partner Cobre y Metales from where ABM operates.
