wind farm noise Applications

  • Wind farm noise monitoring

    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.

  • Noise monitoring for wind farm monitoring

    Wind farms must be developed in such a way that they become a part of the environmental lanscape. To this end, public authorities use standards and regulations to impose limits on the noise levels generated by such installations.

  • Wind Farm Noise Assessment by XL2

    One of the largest acoustic consulting firms in Australia was engaged by the New South Wales Department of Planning & Industry to conduct wind farm noise assessments. The goal was to perform a specialist, independent acoustic compliance audit of three major wind farms located near Canberra, Australia’s capital city. The objective of the study was to conduct a detailed noise assessment at residential dwellings near to the wind farms. Three wind farms near Canberra, Australia, were investigated. XL2 Sound Level Meters were operated on a continuous basis, typically over a six week period at each wind farm. The XL2 was battery powered to enable continuous noise logging for two weeks at a time at each residential site. The recorded data was then processed in accordance with the relevant standards specified in the conditions of consent for wind farms.
