Company Profile

AVEC’s shareholding was acquired by VGI Consulting in April 2021. The AVEC office is located within the VGI offices in Centurion, Pretoria and the staff deliver a range of services to the Oil & Gas, Hydrocarbons, Minerals, Metals, Process and Petrochemical Industries. The services provided include studies, concept work, basic engineering, detailed engineering support, project management and owner’s team support on a reimbursable or fixed price basis.


The personnel in AVEC possess a wealth of process, hydrocarbon, gas, petrochemical, mineral processing and metallurgical expertise and are well known in the hydrocarbon and metals industries, having been involved in numerous projects in South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa over many years. As part of the VGI team, AVEC provides key engineering expertise to a variety of projects, but AVEC also maintains it’s own identity and services which are provided to outside parties. As such AVEC ensures on-going relationships with process, mechanical, piping, electrical, instrumentation and civil/structural contractors and suppliers who are established in the industry in South Africa and who can add resources and expertise when necessary.
