Environmental Noise Control for New Power Generation Facilities
The noise control efforts for new power facilities are usually directed toward compliance with the regulatory criteria required to obtain a plant operating license. The greatest probability for success, at the least cost, is achieved by incorporating noise control early in the plant design process.
Often,the best approach begins with an analysis of the projected acoustic impact of the proposed plant. This analysis is based on a thorough survey of the proposed site and the surrounding community. Consideration of the noise signatures of the equipment to be installed helps to determine if the proposed plant will meet noise emission goals. An analytical model can be employed to make design improvements, or to develop specifications for noise control hardware, if necessary.
