A power company contacted eNoise Control regarding noise complaints
from a residential area close to the company's transformer station. The
customer attempted to erect a plywood barrier to help "stop" the
noise. This was met with very little success.
Below is a
picture of the transformer before the sound wall:

eNoise Control confirmed with sound readings after installation
of the acoustic steel sound wall that our acoustic goals had been
met. Transformer noise can be low frequency tonal in nature and we
do recommend hiring an
Acoustic Engineer such as
eNoise Control to assist in the design of your noise abatement solution.
