Factors for installing DG at high ambient temperature ?

I am about to install a 625 KVA generator in a place where the ambient temperature is around 60* centigrade. What are the necessary modifications should i do with the generator and the factors to be taken into considerations before installing the generator in the site

Welcome to PF;
You should read the manufacturers notes about the generator, it may be you don't need to modify it.
I suspect you will need to work harder at cooling it... but you probably guessed that.

There are lots of ways t do that - it is impossible to advise without knowing more.

Surround it with a structure that brings it cool outside air.

We improved some 7,000 horsepower electric motors by replacing a flat steel plate deck above them with a flat steel grate. That let the warm air escape the building by rising naturally rising instead of being sucked back into the room's ventilation inlets.
