Sound resistant control cabin with a remarkably good result

16/05/2012

 Five engines, onboard a cutter suction dredger of IHC Beavers Dredgers produced an unacceptable noise level of 114 dB(A).

Alara-Lukagro engineered and produced a sound resistant control cabin, to enable the personnel onboard the vessel to control the engines from within the engine room.

After installation of the cabin, a noise level of 68 dB(A) was measured. IHC Merwede acknowledged this is a “remarkably good result”.
