MLM were appointed to provide full acoustic design services for the proposed Energy from Waste Plant in Peterborough. The plant will be able to process up to 85,000 tonnes of waste per year, which otherwise would go to landfill, and to produce renewable electricity equivalent to the amount required to power around 15 percent of Peterborough homes.

Our key objective was to reduce the environmental noise impact from the plant operation and achieve the necessary sound insulation, acoustic privacy and control of reverberation within the office block.

The operation of the plant involves highly noisy processes, particularly from the Turbine Room, Boiler Hall and Tipping area. MLM worked extensively with the design team to provide the necessary noise control strategy, including building envelope panels, acoustic louvres and noise attenuators.

Based on a 3D noise modelling approach, MLM advised on the acoustic performance requirements of the plant while keeping as close as possible to the original design proposals from the architects and the plant engineers.

Key Features

  • Acoustically attenuated cladding system for the building panels and noise attenuators for the natural ventilation system of the process areas.
