HIMOINSA Generator sets provide power to combat the Covid-19 pandemic

Generator sets installed at the Research and Development centre in Zaragoza guarantee an emergency supply in the event of a grid outage, powering high-precision microscopes and units in which human samples are conserved, among other devices.

During the current state of alarm due to the Covid-19 crisis, there are a number of indispensable services whose activity simply cannot be interrupted; hospitals, laboratories, research centres, etc. These critical services have had to make sure that their power supply is secure in order to avoid any possible incidents or lack of supply.

Ever since the onset of this global health crisis, HIMOINSA has maintained its industrial activity in order to ensure uninterrupted service to the international

market. Numerous HIMOINSA generator sets have powered different activities and missions aimed at combating the Coronavirus pandemic.

Recently, through its distributor Sorilux and in collaboration with the engineering company Cobra, several generator sets have been installed at the R&D building of the University of Zaragoza (Spain) in order to provide uninterrupted service, in the event of a grid outage, to the precision equipment that is housed in this centre.

“The building is divided into three main areas, each of which has both a grid and a genset supply as well as UPS. The most important area that has required power is the Aragón supercomputing centre, although other areas, including high-precision microscopes and units in which human samples are conserved have also been supplied”, says Raúl Segura, Sorilux's Commercial Director and Head of Development.


The University Research Institute of the University of Zaragoza (IA3) has realigned its work in recent weeks to address the epidemic. Researchers and technicians, who have been allowed to use the University's infrastructure, equipment and laboratories, have begun studies and tests designed to combat Covid-19.

In this context, HIMOINSA generator sets work in emergency mode to cover any grid outage and thus avoid any interruption in the supply of electricity that could put at risk the continuity of the activity of these research centres.

Safety Protocols


Due to the health crisis brought on by the coronavirus, HIMOINSA has implemented new work protocols in its factories that guarantee the safety of its employees. Similarly, Sorilux, our distributor, is insisting on the importance of applying prevention protocols and rigorous safety measures. “All our machines have been thoroughly cleaned and sanitised, using special disinfection products and paying special attention to the areas that people's hands come most into contact with”, adds Raúl Segura.
