Atmospheric Water Generator by GENAQ

How it Works?

GENAQ atmospheric water generator obtains drinking water through the condensation of water vapor contained in the atmospheric air. It uses the thermodynamic cycle with mechanical refrigeration technology with an advanced electronic control.

Technological improvements have been developed to increase efficiency and, thereby, reduce energy consumption and maximize water generation.

In order to ensure the highest quality of water, the process includes air and water treatments to eliminate suspended particles in the atmosphere and water-soluble volatile organic compounds, to increase water mineralization for drinking water, and to ensure proper conservation for stored water.


The highest water quality

Thanks to our triple filtration system, a GENAQ atmospheric water generator produces pure drinking water with the highest quality and purity with low mineralization, free from biologic contamination, and with excellent physical and chemical properties even in industrial or polluted areas.
It is ideal for human consumption and for other purposes such as preparation of food, irrigation, water supply to animals,…
Produced water complies with World Health Organisation (WHO) standards for drinking water and is certified by European health authorities.

Anywhere you need water

Our atmospheric water generators produce water wherever it is needed and in the required quantity for consumption. In addition, they are portable, so you can easily transport them.
They also function in arid climates with temperatures over 50ºC (122F) and relative humidity lower than 20%, and also in industrial or polluted areas, where our technology ensures high-quality drinking water.


Only air and a source of energy are required, with no need for water collection, storage or distribution facilities.
It can operate in remote locations without being connected to the power supply network using solar panels, wind turbines or a diesel power unit.


Renewable source of water. Like surface water, water contained in the atmosphere is a natural renewable resource. The condensation of the water vapor is a natural phenomenon that leads to rain, thanks to the temperature difference between the air and the ground. By reproducing this phenomenon, our generators allow for the exploitation of this renewable source of water that, unlike water purifying systems by desalination, produces no waste.
In combination with renewable energy, a GENAQ atmospheric water generator allows for a continuous water supply in isolated areas at zero energy cost and with no negative effect on the environment, preserving the natural resources on earth.


The most economical option when you do not have a water source nearby.
The direct cost of production in comparison with bottled water is so low that you get a return on your investment in a short time.
In addition, with a GENAQ atmospheric water generator, you can produce hot water with no extra operational cost recovering the heat produced in the hot point of the refrigeration cycle.

No installation

Forget expensive installation works.
You just need to plug it to start producing pure drinking water.
The best option for obtaining water in remote locations and when the location where you need water changes periodically.

As much as you need

One size for every need. Our compact generators have production capacities ranging from 50 to 5,000 liters per day in nominal conditions.
They can produce water even in arid climates with temperature over 50ºC (122F) and relative humidity lower than 20%.
In addition the production levels of our generators have been certified by TÜV Rheinland in different conditions of temperature and relative humidity.

At the office

GENAQ is part of an industrial group that possess more than 30 years of experience designing and manufacturing HVAC and refrigeration equipments.
We design and manufacture our equipment as we have the know-how and resources to redesign our products and manufacture them exactly as you need them and we will be delighted to be able to satisfy you by customizing our products according to your needs.

The water challenge

Our technology can help to produce pure drinking water in locations with water physical scarcity and arrive places with water facilities in no sanitary conditions.
And what is more important it is done in a cost efficient and renewable way and without waste production.
