SCOPE OF WORK
INNOVA was contracted to design, supply and install noise barriers around the cooler. The 20 foot-high cooler consisted of eight vertical fans, elevated access walkways, and a large pipe rack and piping located on the critical, noise sensitive side. To reduce noise, INNOVA placed two (2) 23-foot high barriers on the side facing the ranch houses. The barriers were designed to not only reduce noise, but maintain excellent air movement for cooling.
A noise reduction target of 10 dBA broad-band at the nearest residences to the plant was required.
All noise requirements were met.
