Snowy Hydro Power Stations at Khancoban N.S.W have utilised a new solution to stop noise from a turbine by the use of flexible Sound Stop acoustic screens available from Optimum Handling Solutions .
An enclosure was installed to control high frequency sound created by the turbine when in operation. A critical requirement of the Sound Stop screen was the need to fully open to allow unobstructed access for maintenance and also complete removal and reinstallation of the turbine.
A system of sliding screens that attach to each other was created to absorb and stop noise from affecting other areas within the power station, in view of a safer and more efficient work place environment.
This new generation partition system can be adapted to many industrial noise problems where the building of walls or structural shields is not wanted or viable. Sound Stop decibel control solutions are a most effective and versatile answer to many noise control problems. They are manufactured in Australia by Optimum Handling Solutions.
