The Basics:



While the User's intent may be to acquire a Genset that can supply electrical power when the unit is called upon to do so, a vital need exists to configure the system to its intended use to ensure success and the attainment of the objective. 

Size and Runtime:

Properly size the unit relative to its intended load.  How critical is the need? How long is the unit expected to provide reliable power?  The unit may require an adequately-sized Sub Base fuel tank with enough capacity to sustain the projected unit runtime. This runtime requirement may also be mandated by the local authorities having jurisdiction over the application. Power Enclosures builds Fuel Tanks in full compliance to the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA), requirements.


The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA)  categorized several levels of sound attenuations of which Levels I and II being the most widely used.  Essentially, 15 and 25dB(A) attenuation, respectively.  Other codes may also apply but local codes many times prevail over the rests and it is suggested that a reputable Engineer or an Architect familiar with those codes be consulted with.


Is the unit secluded or installed near offices or property lines?  Local codes may require certain noise levels not be exceeded when the unit is in operation.  The unit's installed proximity will determine what attenuation level will be required.


Ideally, the unit should be installed and is readily-accessible for service and maintenance purposes while not compromising its security so that the unit does not become an easy target for vandals or for easy access by unauthorized personnel.
