Ventac were contacted by the ESB to design, supply and Install an Acoustic Barrier for a transformer that was causing annoyance for local residents in the area of Knockraha, Co. Cork.
The noise emanating from the cooling fans was creating a tonal noise that was a major disturbance to nearby homes. The height of the barrier we installed was 6 metres and enclosed three sides of the transformer.
Our expertise in Engineering and Acoustics was critical in the design and manufacture stage of this project as wind loading played a part in the selection of panel and posts.
We have now successfully installed three barriers around three separate transformers in the Knockraha sub-station and the results are more than satisfactory.
