Environmental protection engineering
EPE is a pioneer in the field of cathodic protection of marine, offshore and onshore constructions, and one of the most reputable international anode manufacturers, operating in one of the largest factories in Europe.
High-performance sacrificial anodes
EPE’s marketing activity in the field of anodes dates back to 1973. In 1987, the company joined a special research program for the development of high performance sacrificial anodes in cooperation with the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). The developed anodes are now patented under the trade name POLCOR and they have been in production since 1990.
EPE is continually involved in R&D projects for the development of new products and techniques.
