Hellenic Copper Mines
Hellenic Copper Mines was the first European mine to adopt hydro-metallurgy. HCM has implemented an industrial scale solar heating system engineered and installed by MEI, to assist one of their copper refining processes.
The project was engineered and installed in approximately 3 months.
MEI was selected due to a unique combination of the following: large scale solar heating track record, 10 years of experience in implementing projects in hot/desert climate regions, and an understanding and experience in mining and its industrial processes.
