15.1 Site Considerations. Consideration should be given to local
conditions where may it require modifications to definitive drawings and
NFGS specifications (refer to Section 1). Some of these conditions to be
considered are as follows:
a) general site selection as it affects substructure, flood
protection, proximity to load, cooling water source, corrosion due to salt
water spray, etc. (site elevations will also affect diesel engine output.),
heating and ventilating, weatherproofing, etc.,
c) life expectancy of a plant which will affect the type of building
material to be used,
availability and relative cost of various building materials,
e) availability and relative cost of various trained construction
necessity for construction heating in cold climates.
