SCOPE OF WORK

Design, supply, and erection of two acoustic compressor buildings including equipment doors and ventilation system.

NOISE SOURCES

Each building contained one Solar Mars Turbine/Compressor Unit.

SILENCING SOLUTIONS

To accomplish the project requirements, each compressor building featured a lean-to structure that would camouflage the air inlet filter, turbine exhaust silencer and intake ducting. In addition, metal cladding was added to the vertical portion of the turbine exhaust silencer. As part of the design, INNOVA mounted two ventilation intake silencers on the inside of the building, and four exhaust silencers were incorporated into the roof cupolas. The design was true to the rural theme right down to the “imitation” sliding hay barn door installed on the side of each building. INNOVA used its Type E49 acoustical assembly for the walls and roof of the buildings.

UNIQUE PROJECT HURDLES

The compressor station’s location in a predominantly rural area prompted the owners to insist on a design that not only blended into the rural surroundings, but was also quiet enough for the anticipated residential development slated for the area.
