Previous calculations exploiting Computational Fluid Dynamics techniques [1], and using the CFX-4 software, have indicated the presence of potential gas dispersion and explosion hazards in the acoustic enclosure and interconnect skid at Keadby power station. On the basis of those calculations, a different ventilation arrangement is proposed as a means of remediating the hazard. The proposed system is promising, indicating simultaneously a reduction in the size of the hazardous cloud and an increase in its detectability.
