Client: National Grid Customer: Siemens Transmission & Distribution Service: Acoustic Enclosure Project completion: September 2012
Kimpton 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 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.
