Client: National Grid
Customer: Siemens Transmission & Distribution
Service: Acoustic Enclosure
Project completion: September 2012
Kimpton Energy Solutions were employed by Siemens Transmission and Distribution to assist them in meeting the noise emissions criteria set out in the planning permission.
A noise impact assessment determined that an insertion loss of 20dB @ 100Hz was required for each transformer to alleviate the potential noise disturbance.
Kimpton Energy Solutions designed, manufactured and erected two acoustic enclosures. Each enclosure was shipped to site in a modular kit form for ease of transportation and erected around each of the 355 tonne oil filled transformers.
“The specified reductions in noise emissions were achieved, successfully resulting in the required increase in activity at the depot whilst maintaining a minimum level of comfort for its nearest neighbours.”
