SMALL TO MEDIUM OPENSET GENERATORS – 60KVA TO 200KVA
Power Continuity Design and build open-set generators for use within buildings where noise levels are not a concern.
We can also build close fit purpose built acoustic canopies to cater for all your diesel generator sizes and sound attenuating performance.
Diesel generators between 60kVA and 200kVA are generally skid mounted with an 8 hour tank, bunded, centrally positioned between the skids. Power Continuity can increase the tank size up to 24 hours or add a separate fuel tank with all the interconnecting pipeworks.
Should you wish the open set generator to be placed within a building , then we can design the acoustic panels, and ventilation to allow the generator to operate 24/7 when required.
For an indication of sound performance, a standard 80 dBA canopied generator would resemble the sound level of a Mercedes Sprinter on ‘tick over’ and 60 to 70 dBA being the level of a normal conversation at a distance of 3 to 5 feet.
Our acoustic canopies are purpose-designed to achieve the specified sound performance using a range of sound attenuating insulating materials and silencers on the exhaust system of the generator unit. Should you require ultra low sound levels then contact our office – We’re here to help 24/7 0845 055 8455
