- Generation Facility Noise Monitoring & Modeling
We performed ambient and operational noise monitoring and modeling for county and state permitting for a generating facility during upfront licensing and permitting. Permit application text and graphical representation of the expected noise levels caused by a new project at an existing facility was developed during the front-end engineering and design phase.
The client also tapped us to perform compliance demonstration measurements and oversight of the engineer-procure-construct (EPC) contractor during facility commissioning. Preliminary indications demonstrated that additional mitigation would be required. We completed the necessary modeling to demonstrate specific mitigation designs would allow the facility to operate in compliance.
Additional efforts included detailing the permitting implications of retrofitting existing gas-fired units for oil-fired capability.
