In terms of acoustics, you need to comply with regulations, whether it’s to obtain the necessary government approvals before building new infrastructure or to operate your current facilities in accordance with existing standards.
If your project is close to sensitive areas, you must perform noise impact studies and, where necessary, provide appropriate mitigation measures.
For existing infrastructures, this may involve correcting a noise source or performing studies to expand or increase production.
You may also want to play your part as a good corporate citizen and proactively carry out an acoustic study to ensure your aging equipment still meets permitted noise impact thresholds. This would also minimize costs by targeting equipment that only requires preventive maintenance.
Prevent premature equipment wear and breakdown
In terms of vibrations, you may be seeking solutions for mechanical equipment producing vibrations or noise that exceed standard thresholds. Not only can these vibrations cause premature wear and failure on your machines and equipment, they can also cause structural problems, which can lead to costly reparations.
Implementing a predictive maintenance plan is an excellent way to reduce unplanned downtime or high maintenance costs and to maximize your productivity and that of your workers. BBA can support you in implementing this process.
