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.
Sound barrier wall provides solution
Advantages of a sound barrier wall
- Wall constructed from sandwich panels
- Designed to be sound absorbing on one side
- Height 3.5 m, width 9.5 m
- Steel construction: calculated by Alara-Lukagro in terms of wind loads using Eurocode 3 supplemented by the National Annex (related to the height of the wall)
- Concrete foundation supplied by a third party
- Full design, production and assembly provided
Once the project was completed the Vermilion Oil & Gas construction supervisor assessed Alara-Lukagro’s work on 15 different aspects, in accordance with the FPAL assessment system. Alara-Lukagro was awarded an 8 (out of 10) on all 15 aspects – including product quality, project management, installation and service. A result to be proud of!
