Industrial Noise Monitoring, PPC Permit
Long Term Monitoring
Since 2004, IKM has been assessing the potential impact from noise on local residents and industrial properties within the vicinity of a modern biotechnology plant. The survey was required to assess the impact from two emergency diesel fuelled generators, two chiller units and various air conditioning units and associated plant situated around the plant’s perimeter.
Regular noise assessments are required to satisfy conditions of Valneva’s existing PPC permit. For each round of monitoring, IKM undertook baseline noise measurements. On completion of the baseline survey, noise predictive calculations (BS 4142) were undertaken to assess the potential impact on local residents and residential properties from noise levels generated on site.
It was found that noise levels produced by the industrial process were not of sufficient magnitude to cause nuisance/disruption to local residents and businesses.
