The Need for Balance
Industry often has to demonstrate compliance with noise regulations and maintain good relationships with other stakeholders. dBA Noise Consultants provides the services needed to meet those requirements, such as pre- and post construction noise monitoring studies and predictive or post construction noise impact assessments. Our noise assessments comply with applicable legislation. For instance in Alberta, Oil & Gas facilities are governed by the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) and for Power related industries by the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC). In British Columbia Oil & Gas facilities are governed by the BC Energy Regulator (BCER) We also provide independent advice on noise mitigation strategies and noise control and can provide expert witness services.
Some industries where our services may be useful are:
Oil & Gas Facilities e.g. Gas Processing Plants, Compressor stations, Drill Rigs, Bitumen Processing Facilities, Well Pads, Pipelines.
Power Generation e.g. Thermal Power Generation (coal, gas), Wind & Hydro Power, Transmission Stations
Mining (Coal, Minerals, Oil Sands), Ore Processing
Manufacturing (e.g. food processing, metalworking, automotive, plastic extrusion, machining & milling)
