The tactical quiet generator is supplied with fuel by the generator mounted day fuel tank. A 1000 gallon base fuel
tank is mounted in the ISO container. Fuel is transferred to the day fuel tank utilizing an electric fuel transfer pump.
A hand operated fuel transfer pump is provided in case of electric fuel transfer pump failure. A fuel gauge on the
generator instrument panel aids in the refueling of the day tank. The 1000 gallon fuel tank may be refueled inside or
outside the container. Fuel level indicator lights are mounted on the inside and outside of the container to aid in
refueling the 1000 gallon fuel tank.
Stainless steel motorized louvers provides air to the generator for cooling. Generator exhaust is routed outside of the
container. A stainless steel motorized vent provides ventilation for the generator shelter. Aluminum covers are used
while in storage to protect the louvers from the elements.
The ISO container is equipped with a CO2 fire suppression system. The fire suppression system may be operated
automatically or manually. In the automatic mode, a linear detection wire activates the fire suppression system when
the temperature exceeds 356°F. The system may be operated in the manual mode using the manual pull station when
electrical power is available or by pulling the pin and pressing the actuator knob when electrical power is
