Silent Generators are the most common way of providing emergency power for critical systems.
PowerContinuity Systems will build your generator as your specifications. From stock or custom built.
You can choose to have your diesel generator built in any of the following ways and choose what size of fuel tank, colour etc.
We will provide you with a FREE site survey and help you to find the most cost effective system.
Silent Generators – Each Generator can either be fully automatic or manual.
Silent Canopied set – These are usually installed outside a building in a car park or outside the intake room.
Most commonly termed ‘silent’ generators are 80 dbA @ 1 metre noise level in open field conditions.
Silent Acoustic and weather proof canopy – Not just a sound proofing acoustic canopy but also lockable and weather proof – Additionally also 80 dbA @ 1 metre noise are the most common.
Silent Containerised Generators – With sound proofing by means of the acoustic lined container that is both lockable and weather proof – These are usually installed outside a building in a car park or outside the intake room. Containerised generators are usually larger diesel generators above 500kVA also 80dbA @ 1 metres noise level.
Silent Marine Containerised – Commonly installed on the deck of a ship or cruise liner. Exceptional weatherproofing to with stand salt water.
Marine Containerised generators are usually larger generators above 500kVA and upward larger sizes, also with 80dbA @ 1 metres noise level.
Purpose Built Bespoke Silent Generators
Whether it is a residential site or sensitive office environment, we custom build in accordance to meet clients noise level requirements.
Here are the acoustic sound level options available :-
Silent Specification to have 75dbA or less noise emissions @ 1 metre in open field conditions
Super Silent Specification to have 70dbA or less noise emissions @ 1 metre in open field conditions
Extreme Silent Specification to have 65dbA or less noise emissions @ 1 metre in open field conditions
Whisper Silent Specification to have 60dbA or less noise emissions @ 1 metre in open field conditions
Double skinned acoustic containerised with double skinned fuel tanks
Bespoke Built Silent Generators
We can custom build any of our generators in accordance with the clients requirements into a building , Retrofit, or even build custom made sound attenuation into an existing building – For more information on how PowerContinuity builds sound attenuation into existing buildings- Call Us.
Diesel Fuel Tanks
Diesel generators– Fuel tanks for Red Diesel – Each generator that we build comes with an on-board fuel tank. If you choose an openset generator on a skid then the fuel tank is usually a separate stand alone tank.Tell us when ordering Silent Generators your preferred fuel tank combination.
We can custom build larger fuel tanks in accordance with the clients requirements up to 14 days fuel requirements. The largest that we have built so far is 50,000 litre tank
Automatic Mains Transfer panel – AMF or ATP
Diesel generators– Automatic Mains Transfer panel – Each generator that we build comes with a control panel that allows it to be connected to an AMF. An Automatic Mains Transfer panel allows the fully installed power protection to operate without any human involvement. The emergency power system will start up within seconds of a power failure and turn itself off once the grid power has been restored for a stable period of at least 5 minutes. This time period can be adjusted to the conditions of your installation, longer or shorter – Information on how an Automatic Mains Fail panel works.
We can custom build Automatic Mains Transfer panels to any size and any multiple steps allowing cascading of different floors or equipment to start up in a predetermined sequence during any power outage.
