One thing sure do not use a reciprocating engine.

As for the generator are you seeking to sell power on line ?

Much more information needed I suspect. This is hardly a "small" steam plant and is inherently a large bomb.

If 4 tons is the production rate in steam per hour, and the pressure is 10.5 bar, then look it up from enthalpy tables.
