Client: Iluka Resources
Site: Capel North
Location: Western Australia
Product: Soundex Noise Barriers
The challenge: Mitigation of noise created by multiple pump-sets, hydraulic power units and power generators. These loud, high revving (open) machines were positioned in an open space on the Iluka minesite. Without wrapping with Soundex Noise Barriers, the noise from these machines would have created a disturbance to local farms and the community.
The solution: TNS supplied 40 noise barriers. The barriers were mounted to temporary fencing then wrapped around the machinery.
The result: A very impressive reduction in the noise created by these typically loud and high revving machines allowed the works to carry on undisturbed. The noise reduction was remarkable and obvious to all those who attended site during operation.
