Creating a safe workplace on board

In the engine room on a new sand dredger, owned by IHC Beaver Dredgers, five engines are used to power the ship’s pumps. The engines produced a noise level of approximately 114 dB, an unacceptable level of exposure for employees on board the ship. IHC wanted the engines to be operated from the engine room. A significant noise reduction was necessary to make this possible. Alara-Lukagro supplied the soundproof cabin for the engine room. For the cabin’s properties please refer to the above description.

A remarkably good result

After the cabin had been installed, IHC Beavers Dredgers measured the noise level, which was 111 dB outside the cabin and 68 dB inside the cabin and referred to this as:

“A remarkably good result”

Since this project was completed, Alara-Lukagro has supplied many soundproof cabins to IHC Merwede, as a result of the agreeable collaboration and successful result.
