Combined heat and power installation soundproofing

Benteltom in Oud Turnhout (The Netherlands) is a tomato grower occupying around 30,000 m2. The greenhouses are partly heated using a CHP installation (combined heat and power). A CHP installation combines heat and electricity generation. The heat released is used to heat the greenhouses.

The powerful engine of the CHP installation must not emit too much noise. An acoustic enclosure offers the ideal solution. Alara-Lukagro supplied and installed an external acoustic enclosure for Benteltom the tomato grower’s generator set.
