Here at Advanced we soon recognised that the ability to produce bespoke designs gave us the opportunity to provide clients with solutions to problems that could previously not be solved by standard designs. Because Advanced design and build all acoustic solutions in house, we have the expertise and flexibility to accommodate all shapes and sizes to suit even the most restrictive footprints and airflow requirements; whether that means a flat pack solution to be assembled on site, roof mounted inlet or outlet attenuators, or taking air in from the sides of the container, Advanced will find a way that meets your requirements. Where height is an issue, Advanced can install a low profile, recessed box type silencer within the roof rather than a roof mounted cylindrical silencer system.
To minimise the overall footprint of projects consisting of multiple containerised generators; Advanced have completed several installations using stacked containers and bulk fuel storage tanks with access steps, hand rails and platforms, therefore saving space and cost on site.
As well as a need to develop more flexible spatial configurations, there is an ever-growing need to continually improve the noise reduction capabilities of generator housings. In the past, a standard noise level was around 80-85dBA at 1m, but as time has progressed a standard project is now approximately 10dBA quieter than that, and often as low as 60dBA at 1m when required – that’s about as loud as a normal conversation between two people. With noise levels required on projects getting lower and lower, we have continued to meet client’s requirements through innovation from our in-house design team that perform all the calculations required to develop new build methods to absorb noise across all octave bands and meet even the quietest of specifications.
To meet the requirements of electrical contractors and aid installation on site, external cable link boxes or special gland arrangements can be provided on both containerised generators and standard canopied sets to facilitate the connection of incoming armoured cables. All small light and power systems within an enclosure can be supplied by Advanced. This includes: lighting with emergency battery backup, sockets and switches, a distribution board, heaters, fans, air conditioning, dehumidifiers, fire detection panels, and intruder alarms. Electrical fit-out services can also be provided for the installation of outsourced or free issued major components including Form 4 switchboards, distribution transformers and power conditioning equipment including associated containment protection systems and switchgear.
