Ask Structural Engineering Questions and Get Expert Answers ASAP
Hi, can I get back with you in about an hour or two, I have to step into a meeting right now.
I am checking with an associate of my that is well versed in this subject. I will get back with you soon.
30 kw is definitely a large generator.http://www.bergquistinc.com/sites/default/files/academy_guides/Handbook.pdf
Page 8 has a really good table. Bergquist is an industry supplier.I found a 30kw generator that would use 317,625 BTU/hr at 50% load and 490,050 BTU/hr at 100% load. A 250 gallon ASME tank can only provide 216,800 BTU/hr at 20 degrees Fahrenheit.
They correct, the tank would not support that large of a generator.
Do you have the exact model of generator?

There is a weblink to the Handbook in my previous response, take a look and let me know if you need anything else.
