ADE Power Box
COST-EFFECTIVE ACOUSTIC CONTAINMENT
The ADE Power Box is a 20-foot modified ISO container. The design is universal, allowing for a wide range of generators to be installed. The acoustic properties of the container can lower the noise level of the chosen generator by up to 40dB(A), depending on both the size and model of the generator.
The cooling system, silencers and sound traps are designed to reduce installation costs and due to the ISO container dimensions, the unit is easy to transport & lift. The original wooden floor is modified to accept the mountings of the gen-set and its accessories, though the original walls and roof are retained. The roof of the container is acoustically treated, this also acts as a temperature barrier from the sun in extreme conditions.
ADE POWER BOX FEATURES
Side personnel access doors are sound attenuated and both doors fitted with an internal "anti-panic" opening system. The external handle complete with key-operated lock is designed to operate normally against the air pressure of the machine running.
Electrical fit out includes a consumer unit powering the 230V fluorescent lights housed on each side of the container, with a switch by each door. The consumer unit also provides power for two (one per side) socket outlets and the auxiliaries (battery charger and water heater are also connected to the consumer unit if required).
Exhaust silencing on the PB20 is provided by a box type exhaust silencer mounted inside the container and is insulated to limit the internal temperature rise. Exhaust silencing on the PB20XT is provided by a roof mounted external dual pass cylindrical system.
Following rigorous preparation of the original surface, the modified containers are completely re-coated in hard wearing, high gloss paint.
An extensive range of optional extras are also available for both the PB20 and PB20XT Power Boxes.
The standard fuel system is a 500 litre, single wall fuel tank mounted inside the container with an internal fill point.

ADE POWER BOX PB20XT
SUITABLE FOR GENERATORS UP TO 1000 kVA
The ADE Power Box PB20XT is identical to the PB20 in design and specification, except for the additional noise attenuator on the front of the unit. The external pod allows room for a 1000 kVA generator to run at 100% load at noise levels no louder than 85 dB(A) at 1 metre. Adjustable supports are provided to aid flexibility within site conditions. Any number of additional up-fits are also available; including external cable entry cabinets, remote fuel supplies and external lighting.
