A noise expert, Industrial Noise and Vibration Centre, approached National Grid with a novel vent silencer design that requires further development. This is potentially a low cost, simple alternative, much more suited to a range of applications on the National Transmission System (NTS), in comparison to off the shelf solutions.
With the noise implications of National Grid’s venting operations becoming more highly scrutinized, resulting benefits of this project would include:
The intention is to carry out the required research, development and testing of a proposed high pressure
venting silencer with the Industrial Noise and Vibration Centre. The silencer has the potential to deliver
reduced noise levels, reduced health and safety exposure and also improve public perception and reduce noise
pollution during these necessary venting operations.
To deliver a new design of vent silencer suitable for use at national transmission system (NTS) compressor sites and NTS pressure
reduction installations (PRIs).
