Most standby diesel and gas generator sets are equipped with radiators to regulate temperature. However, there are times when it is better to use a remote cooling system for temperature control.

Implementing a remote radiator behind the building can be a much better option, because all the cooling noise is on one side of the building and most of the mechanical noise from the engine can be contained inside the power room.
