The FIHAV trade fair in Havana is the biggest and most important exhibition in the Caribbean and one of the largest in South America.
AVK was present at the exhibition for the first time with its own stand through AVK VALVULAS, and this year, a total of 70 countries were represented by companies from all sectors of the Cuban economy.
AVK VALVULAS started supplying series 06/30 valves to AGUAS DE LA HABANA and AGUAS DE VARADERO in 1999 through the AGBAR Group. One of AVK VALVULAS large orders in 2016 was for Santiago pumping station counting gate valves from DN350 to DN800, a big share of them with electrical actuators, butterfly valves series 75 and 820 from DN200 to DN800, air valves, fittings and 6 surge anticipating relief valves. The order was supplied through the WILO SE pumps company.
During the exhibition, AVK’s stand attracted engineers working in the water market in Cuba, and they were all very interested in the AVK program; especially in series 06/30 with extension spindle and street covers, repair clamps and the couplings for PE pipes.
