5 Year Contract
In 2010 Global Renewables agreed a 5 year contract with Brüel & Kjær to establish and operate Noise Sentinel at each recycling plant.
Each site is equipped with 6 permanent noise monitoring terminals (NMTs) located around the perimeter of the facility. The NMTs communicate noise in real time through standard network connections to the internet. One NMT at each site is fitted with an anemometer and wind direction monitoring equipment.
From there the data is sent securely to the Noise Sentinel Data Centre where it is processed and made available to authorized users anywhere over the internet. The Noise Sentinel Control App is always displayed live in the control room of each of the Waste Recovery Parks and is used to manage and interrogate the incidents as they arise. The Technical Manager and other key staff members can access the system remotely from any location.
