The Noise Sentinel Solution
Over a period of months Brüel & Kjær EMS and the local sales representative spent time with Global Renewables to clearly understand any constraints; not just with respect to the planning conditions, but their operating practices, staff availability and budget. Monitoring levels of 50dB(A) was particularly complex in the case of the Farington Waste Recovery Park which is located on the same site as a heavy truck manufacturing plant. An automated solution that was easy to understand by all members of staff, and the public, was of paramount importance. Each Waste Recovery Park has a Technical Manager who is responsible for the reporting of all Environmental Issues. Management of any potential noise breaches would be done by operational monitoring staff , with no noise experience, as the environment manager may not always be available. Noise Sentinel was identified as a perfect fit for this application.
