Noise Abatement for Industrial
Reducing the noise within your factory or plant can lead to happier, more productive teams. Check out some of our successful projects for Industrial facilities, or contact us to learn more about how we can help with you industrial noise reduction project.
Aercoustics has substantial in-house expertise in noise and vibration mitigation – for industrial sites large and small. Our noise and vibration solutions are holistic. We appreciate the complexities of industrial sites and we work with our clients to balance regulatory and operational requirements. This means working closely with clients and engineering teams to develop the best action plan for the site, whether it’s for an official Noise Abatement Action Plan in support of governmental approvals or in response to complaints. We have been privileged to apply our expertise to many environmental projects for outdoor sound propagation review, modelling, and mitigation. Repeated commissions from proponents, designers, fabricators, operators of facilities reflect our understanding of client priorities.
Some problems require custom solutions. Aercoustics works with clients to deliver bespoke designs when off-the-shelf products won’t do. Our team designs and optimizes systems to solve existing noise and vibration problems on site and help new products come to market. We are experts in mitigation for generators, manufacturing equipment, building systems, cogeneration facilities, rooftop equipment, and more. Our solutions are tailored to meet client specifications and based on sound scientific practices. We use tools such as noise and vibration modelling, site measurements, and prototype review to develop the best approach to each challenge. Aercoustics is a trusted advisor to many designers and operators. We provide comprehensive and confidential design services, supporting clients from concept to delivery.
Facilities in Ontario are required to register under the Ministry of Environment Environmental Activity Sector Registry (EASR) or apply for Environmental Compliance Approval (ECA) permits. In order to fulfil this obligation, in many cases they require an Acoustic Assessment Report that outlines the facilities current noise emissions and, if they exceed the sound level limits, recommendations to control the noise. Aercoustics uses industry standard approaches and software to model each source and facility to determine the impact. From there, we develop noise controls to bring noise levels into compliance. On large-scale projects this can be very challenging, as we have to identify the key sources and ensure that controls are feasible and practical. We have successfully provided assessments for Thorold Cogeneration, Karmax Heavy Stamping and Ingredion.
We have the required manpower and instrumentation capabilities to deliver acoustic surveys, acoustic performance verification and other noise related tasks, everything that is required by reviewing authorities. Our large and technically diverse team is not only capable of punctually accomplishing the proposed scope of work, but eager to meet and surpass the work standards of the client.
Our projects have met with a great deal of success before reviewing authorities such as the Federal Environmental Assessment Review Panels, Provincial Ministries of Environment, as well as many Consolidated hearing Boards such as the Ontario Municipal Board/Local Planning Appeal Tribunal and the Ontario Energy Board.
