The challenge was to ensure that the generators were properly cooled. The room in which they were to be installed is unventilated, so in order to cool the generator sets it was decided to install a remote cooling system with vertical radiators on the roof of the building.
Two circuits were installed to overcome the cooling problem. The first circuit has an engine with an integrated heat exchanger to increase the distance between the engine and the radiator. A secondary circuit cools the engine water from the heat exchanger and channels it to the remote radiator, located on the building's roof, far away from the room housing the generator sets on the first floor of the building.
The 12 HIMOINSA generator sets installed in this project have a heat exchanger, remote radiator, anti-condensation alternator and fuel cooler. The fuel cooler keeps the fuel at room temperature to ensure optimal engine performance.
The generators are fitted with a -35 dB (A) steel silencer, which provides a high degree of sound insulation to control noise in the residential area in which the generators are installed.
Why HIMOINSA generator sets?
Alick Wan, General Manager at Shanghai EPG Machinery & Electricity Co. Ltd, one of HIMOINSA's distributors in China, says that “our end client was very impressed by the performance and compact structure of the generators. They believe that HIMOINSA product design is the best match for this project. We always choose HIMOINSA generator sets with total confidence for our data center projects.”
