Aptech Africa to help solve water problems in Sierra Leone


Aptech Africa, an agent for Grundfos pumps, has been singled out as the savior for Sierra Leone’s persistent water crisis. The Deputy Water Resources Minister Dr. Edward Hinga said that the equipment supplied by Aptech Africa is of high quality and tailored to produce desired services.

As such, Dr. Hinga expressed his confidence that the company will be able to enhance water quality and stop wastages.

The Director of Aptech Africa Asteway Yigezu said they have been in Sierra Leone for a while and have been working with several NGOs supplying them with water pumps and solar energy. He further added that some  of the solar applications include solar powered water pumps, solar water heating, office power supply, portable plug and play solar kits, solar street/security lights, water pipes, building materials, and solar powered refrigerators.

According to Mr Yigezu, Aptech Africa has the responsibility to provide energy services to Africa in a way that respects the dignity of all employees, beneficiaries, and the world as a whole. Aptech Africa thus considers all of these aspects as it works to implement its efforts to bring clean, renewable energy to Africa.

According to media reports, Aptech Africa West Africa branch office in Sierra Leone, as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility, donated a complete solar system including 12 panels and 12 batteries, to a hospital in Freetown.  The solar system will help to bring improved health care to the surrounding community.

Aptech Africa Ltd. is Africa’s Solar Energy and Water Pump Specialist. The company was founded in 2006 as a distribution and installation company for some of the most reputable brands from Europe and the US. It has offices located in South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, and Central African Republic.

So far, they have managed to develop a reputation for distributing high quality products and providing exceptional installation services. This, in turn, has given room for the expansion to other countries in Africa.
