Noise Sentinel: Simplify your noise management

Brüel and Kjær Environment Management Solutions, (EMS) is delighted to announce the release of Noise Sentinel - our new internet based subscription service for urban and industrial noise monitoring. Noise Sentinel has applications in any industry that makes significant noise in the community and is required to report compliance with noise regulations, such as mines, ports, industrial premises, power stations, wind farms and large construction projects. Our innovative, service-based approach takes care of the complexities of maintaining a robust and defendable noise monitoring regime. Noise Sentinel does not impact on your resources and frees you to focus on your core business.

Innovative approach
Until now, the only practical approach to managing compliance with noise regulations has been for organisations to purchase noise measurement equipment, software and training and utilise existing resources to operate the equipment on an ongoing basis. This requires a degree of expertise not normally found within most organisations. With Noise Sentinel, Brüel and Kjær remove the problems and deliver the results; noise compliance reports tailored to your business.

In this way you gain:
• The highest quality result – our experienced Brüel and Kjær team supplies and operates the system for you
• Simplified operations – We take care of everything meaning that you don’t have to
• Simplified finances – with 40% lower setup costs and 10% lower overall costs, it makes financial sense

Phil Stollery, Brüel & Kjær EMS’ Product Marketing Manager said “We are delighted to bring our wealth of experience in operating noise management systems at some of the world’s most environmentally scrutinised airports to the urban and industrial sector. As well as providing a robust solution, the economic benefits of Noise Sentinel are particularly timely given the current global financial crisis.”

Automated reporting and ad-hoc analysis when you need it
Noise Sentinel is web based and shows the current real time noise situation, alerts the operator to any threshold exceedances and delivers regular noise compliance reports that are tailored to your legislative requirements. At any time, any particular noise situation can be investigated in detail though ad-hoc analysis.

“Noise Monitoring is complex when it is done properly. It requires investment in quality instrumentation, non-core skills and accredited personnel. When your operating licence is under threat you really need to ensure you do it properly otherwise you can increase business risk within your organisation. Noise Sentinel provides a compelling solution”, said Doug Manvell, Noise Sentinel Product Manager.
