The African Way


Anyone travelling to Africa for the first time will usually be very surprised.

The huge continent is a very diverse collection of over 50 countries with high population and economic growth rates. It is expected that there will be 12 megacities in Africa by 2025, with the world’s fastest growing middleclass population. With the recognition of climate change and resource scarcity, Africa has a great potential for AVK.

Is there an African way of doing things? Not really! The myth is dispelled with one example of a borehole project where resilient seated gate valves, double eccentric gate valves, air valves and various fittings were fitted in a pumping station – all supplied by AVK International A/S through Imcopipes Ltd. This project (one of many in different locations) is fully functioning and eventually up to 20,000 homes will be supplied with clean drinking water.
