The site is a compressor station, using gas turbines to provide power for compressors on TransCanada Pipelines’ cross-country pipeline. Site regulations required critical dBA and low frequency noise limits.
SCOPE OF WORK
INNOVA provided the design and supply of the enclosure, ventilation system, inlet system, and exhaust system including Higgott-KaneTM silencing and expansion joints.
- 45 dBA at 100m from the complete package
- Low frequency limits of 68 dB and 60 dB at 100m from the complete package
UNIQUE PROJECT HURDLES
The Solar Mars gas turbine was required to be silenced, ventilated, protected from the elements and this had to be done while allowing quick turnaround maintainability of the gas turbine engine.
