2.     Control Room:

Control room should have sufficient air cooling system so that the room can maintain the temperature below 25 ⁰C.

3.     Proper ventilation system with filtration system:

The generator room should have proper ventilation with filtration system and positive pressure around 3-4 mm water column.

It is recommended to have at least 72,000 m3/h inlet and 47,000 m3/h outlet flow capacity ventilation for each of the MWM TCG2020V16K generator. Air flow direction needs to be from alternator side to engine side and ventilation ducting is required to through the inlet air in the proper position.

As per MWM the generator room temperature should be between 25⁰C – 35⁰C to keep the operation smooth.

MWM recommendation is to use G3 class filters in the ventilation system to keep the room dust free.
