Power Generation Noise Control
Power generation noise control solutions remain a vital part of power infrastructure, no matter what the source technology. The need for power generation facilities and processes continues to grow exponentially as our power consumption increases. A huge part of our society and culture, our increasing reliance on technology and data is fuelled by power to data centres. Similarly our drive to recycle and convert waste to energy needs power for processing. As our reliance on fossil fuels gradually declines and our access to green power increases, our power sources become cleaner and more efficient. Cogeneration through localised Combined Heat & Power [CHP] plants provides greater opportunities for efficient conversion of heat and power, while also offering large scale commercial or industrial facilities access to off-grid power.
No matter what the process or mode of power generation, invariably noise as a by product of energy conversion will be created. Managing and mitigating noise for specialists within the power generation sector is a core business function for Hodgson Acoustics – throughout our history and as part of our future strategy. We help protect and manage the impact of noise on local environments (Environmental Noise regulation BS4142 2014) and people (Noise at Work 2005) through initial design, planning concept and consent process in partnership with power generation providers.
