Generator sets for

water treatment plants

“Water is the driving force of all nature”. Leonardo da Vinci used these words to define the importance of this element, which is crucial to the survival of life on earth. We often take access to clean, quality water for granted, but we don't take a moment to think in what would happen in the case of a power outage, we would not be able to make that water drinkable or deliver it safely to our homes.

In fact, according to several published reports, this is a privilege that it isn't within reach of some 1.1 billion people. But not only: each year, 2.7 billion people are reported to have problems accessing water during at least one full month, and 2.4 billion people are exposed to many type of diseases such as cholera, typhoid fever and other water-borne diseases due to lack of sanitation and water treatment facilities.

Generator sets are the required solution to ensure that drinking water continue flowing, and that waste can be processed in the event of a grid outage. At HIMOINSA we work tireless to offer the most suitable power solutions for each water treatment project, guaranteeing the necessary power in critical applications such as drinking water and waste water treatment plants, or desalination plants.

Backup generator sets with a just a few seconds time response

HIMOINSA generator sets are capable of supplying all the power required in a short period of time, allowing the uninterrupted operation of the plant and all its component systems, guaranteeing a continuous flow of drinking water to the water network.

A wide portfolio of power solutions able to supply both a small desalination plant in isolated towns and large-scale water processing installations in large urban centres. In addition, as an option, they can be controlled remotely via a fleet manager kit, operated from a single mobile device, PC or tablet, for greater convenience and safety of the team responsible for the plant. 

Service & Know How

Hydraulic infrastructures require complex engineering studies to ensure that their facilities perform correctly. For this reason, HIMOINSA, with its extensive experience in the sector, always makes its specialised technical team available to the client to provide advice, and to offer the best possible solution for each project.


Some examples include the large water treatment plant built by the Algerian government for the city of Constantine, in which HIMOINSA supplied a standby genset to facilitate access to quality drinking water for a population of over a quarter of a million inhabitants; or the recent case of the desalination plant in Ensenada (Mexico), where soundproofed gensets ready to work in parallel have been installed in a plant that delivers 250 l/s to the water network in one of the regions of Mexico where water is most scarce.

Constantine water treatment plant


The Algerian government has chosen the HIMOINSA gensets for one of its most ambitious projects, in which 1660kVA of standby power was supplied. A genset with an external tank and a running time of 48 hours of continuous operation, with an uninterrupted transfer system that guarantees that the plant will continue to operate constantly in the event of a grid outage.

Ensenada desalination plant


The coastal city of Ensenada has chosen HIMOINSA power solutions; soundproofed generator sets, ready to work in parallel, with a control panel that avoids the voltage drop effect when the grid supply is restored.

Power plant for a pumping station, Cassaque


25MW of installed power in the Cassaque pumping station (Angola). This project improves the living conditions of the population by ensuring a regular supply of quality water. The capacity of this station represents 60% of the treated water in Luanda and intended for consumption by the population.
