AFRICA

A large number of Kirloskar pumps have transformed a million lives across the length and breadth of Africa by providing water for agricultural irrigation and other necessities. With their unique AAA (Adaptable, Appropriate and Affordable) technology, Kirloskar is committed to bringing about a Green Revolution in Africa.

In Senegal, over 2,300 Kirloskar diesel engine-driven pumps and over 20 drip irrigation systems across the Senegal river have increased the annual rice production from less than 100,000 tonnes to 460,000 tonnes by increasing the irrigated land from 24,500 hectares to 85,000 hectares. Senegal is well supported by Kirloskar to achieve self-sufficiency in food by 2013.
