I need to know the safe distance between 300 Kva diesel engine exhaust silencer pointing towards a diesel tank of (capacity 35000 liters).

 

We have a huge Diesel tank with its retaining boundary wall around the tank and outside of this one diesel engine is installed which exhaust smoke/silencer is towards this diesel tank.My question is" Is it dangerous to have exhaust of a diesel engine close to the fuel tank" Can it be the cause of catching fire.

This installation is in the power producing industry.
