Sound barrier wall prevents noise nuisance from a gas treatment unit

The gas treatment unit at the Vermilion Oil & Gas natural gas production site near Eernewoude (The Netherlands) was emitting too much noise to a home close by. A sound barrier wall offered the ideal solution to the problem.

Noise nuisance solution

The Noordelijk Akoestisch Adviesbureau advised the installation of an acoustic and sound-absorbing barrier wall between the installation and the home, to limit the noise emission in the direction of the home. Vermilion Oil & Gas approached Alara-Lukagro to engineer, produce, preserve and install the sound barrier wall, including the foundation.
