Students from Frederikshavn visit American AVK

07 December 2018

The world has become a very global place and today it is common for students to travel far for their studies.

Nine students from the maritime and polytechnic college in Frederikshavn were no exception, and from 21-25 October 2018, they made the long trip to the US. The purpose of a study trip is to acquire knowledge and AVK facilitated this by inviting them inside at AVK’s plant in Nevada. Here the students were introduced to AVK’s products, as well as AVK’s factory and the necessary standards of production to ensure high-quality products.

The students were pleased with the opportunity to visit the factory and saw how AVK valves for, for example, wastewater treatment plants and pump stations were assembled and tested. Furthermore, they were told about the handling of orders and storage of products. During their factory tour, AVK was testing a Ø1200mm knife gate valve of 950 kg, which was lifted up on a test bench and tilted at a 30 angle, making the experience all the more educating and interesting.
