Noise Protection Using Sound Insulation at Cogerataion Plants
Cogeneration plants can be environmentally-friendly also at a high overall equipment effectiveness. Generating electrical energy and heat in combination improves overall equipment effectiveness of cogeneration plants up to 90%. This concept incorporates our compact sound proofing cabin for noise protection of cogeneration plants while acting as a heat-insulating hood at the same time.
The design layout involves meeting the different requirements for noise protection of cogeneration plants:
- Sufficient ventilation
- Vibration insulation
- Acoustic optimization
Based on ambient conditions and the frequency spectrum of individual components, our technicians define the acoustic hardware components. We work out an environmentally-friendly and economical solution for the noise protection of your cogeneration plant.
As your partner in noise protection for cogeneration plants, FAIST guarantees smooth progress of the project. In the preparatory stage our sales and distribution, together with the customer, will work out a solution tailored to your boundary conditions for the sound insulation of your cogeneration plant.
Once assigned, this soundproofing concept is seamlessly submitted to our Project Management/Engineering Department, which will implement the results with regard to noise protection at the cogeneration plant and carry out the project in close coordination with the customer.
After the production of the soundproofing components for the cogeneration plant (soundproofing elements in steel construction, sheet metal construction, silencers, ventilation), they are professionally packaged and shipped. Noise protection for cogeneration plants is set up on site by our competent assembly teams.
Sound Insulation For Transformers In Substations
Transformers in the substations of power grid operators generate an especially low frequency soundscape with many tones heard over longer distances. Effective transformer sound insulation is thus essential if there are residential areas in the vicinity of the substations. FAIST noise barriers have – as an alternative to the relatively complex and costly enclosure of individual transformers – proven themselves in noise protection at substations. Adapted to the respective topographical conditions and set up for this specific noise characteristic, large modules are used here for noise protection and can quickly be built into the transformers of the substations.
Using special programs, FAIST simulates different options for noise protection of transformers prior to design and during acoustic consultation. For instance, the height of noise-protection barriers in substations can be adapted and optimally integrated into the environment. Savings on material can be achieved by optimal sizing of noise-protection barriers. Together with the customer, FAIST carries out optimal noise protection for transformers.
