AIC’s multi-discipline project skills, with the ability to secure financial closure, offers our many clients-National, Regional and International-the most comprehensive of service.

AIC’s rapid growth in the last few years has been an expansion into international markets throughout Africa and the Caribbean.


Area of Expertise - Water...

Meeting the basic need of water is a long-standing challenge in sub-Saharan African countries as it is indeed in many countries of the developing world. It is a challenge that AIC has met to the full being responsible for the design and supervision of many of Nigeria’s most successful projects. The support given by the African Development Bank (ADB) has been instrumental to that success. The Department’s expertise is now being applied to the wider development of projects in African and the Caribbean.

AIC’s recent and current workload on water supply alone comprises over 180mgd of water supply capacity and $1 billion of installed works as indicated in the table.

Plateau Public Utilities Board

African Development bank & Client

Construction cost:
$76 million

Scope of work:
Feasibility study, Design, Tender Documentation, Tender Evaluation. Project Management & Site supervision

The two schemes for Keffi /Akwanga and Doma water supplies were integrated into a single project to serve the three principal towns as well as smaller town and villages in the vicinity. The feasibility study paid particular attention to the determination of population and scheme design capacities.

A full economic and financial appraisal was included for ADB funding negotiations and these showed that the existing tariff structure would not produce an adequate IRR for the project. Proposals were therefore made for a progressive adjustment of tariffs over a ten year period to achieve full cost recovery. The scheme for Keffi/Akwanga is based on raw water extraction from the River Mada and has a peak output of 53,000 cu.m /day

Treatment comprises aeration, clarification, filtration and sterilization using plant designed for robust operation. Raw and treated water pumping plant with a total installed capacity of 160kW is provided .the rising main to Keffi is 54km long and 700/600mmdia ductile iron. The rising main to Akwanga is 13km long and of 300mm dia ductile iron. Altogether five new service reservoirs are provided, feeding new distribution system with a total length of 90km.

The Doma scheme uses the existing Doma irrigation impounding reservoir as its source and has a peak output capacity of 11,500 cu.m/day.

The treatment process is similar to the Keffi scheme. Total installed pump capacity is 400kw and the 300mmdia ductile iron rising main is 11km long, feeding a single new service reservoir. The distribution network has mains up to 400mmdia and a total length of 25km.

Project completion is in April 1995.
