Turbine Blade Manufacturers, IoW

Southdowns’ was commissioned to design and execute specialist occupational noise and spatial dust surveys within its two main production halls, as part of its on-going commitment to the management of risk and occupational health and safety at its turbine manufacturing premises on the Isle of Wight. Real time measurements of PM10 respirable particulates, PM2. 5 particulates and PM1 concentrations were taken across the shop floor. Values were used to create a spatial distribution model of airborne particulates and were compared against exposure limits, allowing the client to assess the effectiveness of ventilation systems. Sample noise and dust exposures were obtained...

Noise emissions monitoring services

Rudge Hill Farm - Photovoltaic Solar Energy Generation System for Renewable Energy

Noise emissions generated by the operation of a photovoltaic solar farm were investigated as part of a noise complaint investigation. The solar farm has a generation capacity of approximately 1 megawatt (MW) that provides power to approximately 250 dwellings, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 420,000 kg per annum. An attended noise survey was undertaken on and in the vicinity of the solar farm, which included narrowband Fast Fourier Transform noise measurements in proximity to the solar farm’s inverters and HV transformer plant and the measurement of narrowband frequency and broadband A-weighted L max , L eq,T and L 90,T noise...

Demolition and construction dust risk assessment

The Glebe, London

The prestigious Glebe scheme – anticipated to become London’s most expensive address – comprises six high-end apartments, a duplex penthouse and two large detached villas, and has an estimated development value of £300m. . Southdowns has provided pre-commencement consultancy to enable our client to discharge planning conditions including; baseline surveys; demolition and construction dust risk assessment method statement; and preparation of a low emission strategy. . The discharge of the Low Emission Strategy planning condition required negotiation and agreement of appropriate emission limits with the local authority. The calculation of the Combined Heat and Power and boiler system emissions and...
