Wind Turbine Noise Surveys

Noise Surveys for Wind Turbines

Wind Turbine Noise Survyes

Wind turbine noise surveys and assessments considering large wind farms would be carried out in accordance with ETSU-R-97.

IEC undertake desktop scoping assessments and site-specific noise assessments, depending on the constraints of the proposed site, in full accordance with ETSU-R-97 and guidance given by the Institute of Acoustics.

Wind Farm Noise Assessments

Wind farm noise assessments will need to consider the area within which noise from the proposed wind turbines may exceed 35 dB LA90 at up to 10 m/s wind speed. Turbines which are remote residential properties may only need a desktop scoping assessment in order to demonstrate that they will not adversely affect local residents.

Noise Monitoring Equipemnt

Independent Environmental Consultancy are full members of the Association of Noise Consultants and will fully consider your development in terms of relevant British Standards and World Health Organisation Guidelines.

If baseline wind turbine surveys are required, this involves the installation of noise monitoring equipment to record background noise levels at positions representative of residential properties over an extended period (normally over at least 2 weeks). It will also be necessary to install a weather mast located at the site in order to correlate meteorological conditions with the noise measurements.

CadnaA (Computer Aided Noise Abatement) software is used for the prediction of resulting noise levels at residential properties. Where criteria is predicted to be exceeded, it is necessary to reduce noise levels by revising the turbine layout or the turbine design.
