GEN2200HC, grupo electrógeno para planta de cogeneración

We reinforced safety at the Howard water-treatment-plant in Panama Oeste district.

A customised 3875 kVA generator set will ensure the operation of the infrastructure in the event of grid failures or outages.

Panama has been a key part of Genesal Energy’s business strategy from the very beginning, when the company began its international expansion more than 25 years ago. Abundant natural resources and a great future from the energy point of view are just two of the attractions of this Central American country and hence its presence in the company’s strategic plans.

One of the new projects carried out by Genesal Energy on Panamanian soil consists of reinforcing safety in one of the country’s most important infrastructures: the Howard water-treatment-plant, supplying drinking water to almost 200,000 people.
