Ventilation modules for large power plant
Supply and installation of 11 no. inlet and outlet ventilation modules. Inlet units approx. 3.6m wide x 3.6m high x 4.0m long. Outlet units approx. 3.0m wide x 3.0m deep x 3.7m high (including penthouse louvre). Each engine cell was also fitted with acoustic doors and closure panels, supplied by Wakefield Acoustics.
The inlet ventilation modules were designed as a 1-piece, factory assembled unit to assist with a quick site installation. Each of the units included 6 no. axial fans, motorised dampers, acoustic splitters for noise reduction, filtration and inlet weather louvres. Outlet ventilation units comprised of a motorised damper, acoustic splitters and penthouse louvre. The design of each ventilation module included a lifting frame arrangement to allow units to be crane lifted into position.
Engine noise levels were typically around 105dBA, and the ventilation modules were designed to reduce noise to 70dBA at 1m.
