At work we have a 250kW standby generator (Cat powered) outside the kitchen. It 
was too loud so they piped the exhaust underground for about 100' through a 12" 
corrugated pipe. It's still pretty loud - I can hear it clearly at my house about 1km 
away. I suspect they were more concerned with just deflecting the noise away from 
the buildings, so it could probably do better. It only runs during a major storm, so I 
don't mind too much...
