Generator Noise

Generator Noise – Case Study

Situation:

Emergency Power Generator

Emergency Power Generator

A client of ours was installing large (over 2000 kW) emergency power generators located in a large metropolitan area within close proximity to residential neighbors. Requirements for the project included high sound attenuation, muffled exhaust, and multiple generator housings (buildings).

Solution:

eNoise Control provided a modular, outdoor sound enclosure with intake and exhaust silencers. The advantage of this solution was four-fold.

  • First, the advantage of the smaller footprint of having a single enclosure housing multiple gensets versus multiple traditional generator enclosures.
  • Second, access for maintenance was improved because the client would now have more space between each unit for access
  • Third, because the “generator housing” or sound enclosure is technically a temporary or moveable structure, permitting is simpler versus constructing a fixed building to house the genset units.
  • Finally, the sound enclosure is being supplied by a sound control company that specializes in the production of sound enclosures and acoustical silencers, thus ensuring that the noise reduction goals will be met. .
