Power Generation projects can range in size from large power plants producing several hundred Megawatts to small localized power generation of several hundred Kilowatts. Smaller power plants associated with existing industrial noise sources (gas plants, upgraders, pulp and paper mills) are becoming more common. Each presents challenges and issues related to the regulatory requirements of the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) Rule 012, the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) Directive 038, and local municipal noise bylaws.
ACI has conducted numerous noise impact assessments for power generation projects of all sizes in locations ranging from rural areas with no nearby residential receptors to central urban areas with high population densities and significant existing urban noise sources. Noise mitigation recommendations are often required to ensure compliance with the various assessment criteria.
In addition to noise impact assessments, ACI has the equipment and expertise to conduct long term noise monitorings for several days up to several months and even permanent installations.
