Wind Farm, Senegal

Southdowns undertook an environmental noise impact assessment of a 50 MW large-scale wind farm proposed to be located in the Saint-Louis and Louga regions of north-west Senegal. An acoustical model of the proposed wind turbines was developed, using the noise modelling software SoundPLAN v7, and noise contours were generated to predict the spatial variation in the wind farm's noise emissions in surrounding communities.
