Noise issues have become an increasingly important priority for many residential communities. It is within this context that the implementation of a noise reduction solution at the source of electrical transformers is of critical concern.

Utility and energy management companies are becoming progressively aware that the noise being generated by these infrastructures is impacting the quality of life of nearby residents.

For this particular case study, NB Power wanted to find an effective solution to reduce the tonal noise of its electrical transformers using industrial sound reduction methods, to increase the well-being of the surrounding communities.
