Environmental noise is unwanted sound and vibration coming from a plethora of sources, among them industrial plants, road and rail traffic, construction work, and aircraft. Add to these sports events, shooting ranges, leisure parks, etc, and you have noise from many different sources, each with different characteristics and posing specific problems for the professionals who have to assess them. The way the problems are dealt with differs immensely from country to country and is very much dependent on culture, economy and politics. We offer solutions to cover all demands from level checks to in-depth analysis, from measurement or prediction, to post-processing and reporting.

Wind energy is a renewable energy source that is being harnessed globally to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and the associated impact on our environment. However, the environmental impact of the turbine noise and the blade pass noise is a concern that is carefully monitored and generally regulated. It is very important to be able to acquire accurate acoustical data for analysis, noise impact predictions, and regulatory compliance. Effective noise monitoring is a very valuable tool to manage a wind farm’s relationship with the community and with the local regulatory organizations.
