Industrial Noise

Novus conducts noise measurement and modelling for facilities in sectors such as industry, power generation, pharmaceuticals, mining & metals, and wind energy. Our work is usually conducted as part of permitting work for Acoustic Assessment Reports, Acoustic Audits, Surveys and Baseline Studies, and Environmental Assessments.

Measurements are conducted using state-of-the art equipment and procedures to obtain quick and accurate results. Modelling is usually performed using Cadna/A, a computerized noise model based on the internationally recognized ISO-9613 noise modelling algorithms. Model outputs can be either at discrete noise sensitive receptors, or in the form of noise contours (isopleths of equal noise level). Where required, various noise mitigation measures and noise control plans can be investigated and designed, including silencers (mufflers), noise barriers, enclosures, and alterations to equipment and operations.
