Client: National Grid
Customer: Siemens Transmission & Distribution
Service: Acoustic Enclosure
Project completion: September 2012
Siemens Transmission and Distribution employed Kimpton Energy Solutions 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 installed two acoustic enclosures. Each enclosure was shipped to site in a modular kit form for ease of transportation and then erected around each of the 355 tonne oil-filled transformers.
