Power Generation Noise Control

Power generation noise control solutions are a vital part of power infrastructure, whatever the source technology. The need for power generation facilities and processes continues to grow exponentially as our power consumption increases – our reliance on technology and data is fuelled by power to data centres and even our drive to recycle and convert waste to energy needs power for processing.

Through more efficient and environmentally sustainable power generation facilities, such as cogeneration energy through local Combined Heat & Power [CHP] plants, we can utilise a more efficient conversion of heat and power, while also offering large scale commercial or industrial facilities access to off-grid power.  These facilities will typically be supported by diesel or gas prime source engines, or gas turbines, with specific noise control, exhaust and filtration treatment requirements.

Whatever the mix of power generation sources and environmental noise control requirements, we are able to provide a customised noise mitigation strategy and implementation plan to a wide spectrum of market sectors, through a broad range of noise control products and packaged solutions.

Our Markets

Standby & Continuous

Packaged noise control solutions for containment, absorption, ventilation and exhaust treatments, across diesel and gas reciprocating engines and gas turbines


Combined Heat & Power facilities noise control treatment for prime mover engines, exhausts, pumps, compressors and vent systems

Cogeneration CHP

Cogeneration or Combined Heat & Power [CHP] facilities are commonly found across all these typical large site infrastructure applications.  Cogeneration of heat and power is more efficient and cost effective than grid power and boiler heating, while providing off-grid energy resilience.

We package a complex mix of product integrations for CHP installations, including the following elements;

  • Acoustic panels, supporting structures, ventilation and exhaust systems.
  • Noise reduction ratings from 15 to 50 dBA
  • Indoor or outdoor modular solutions
  • Integration of lighting, ventilation, fire systems, instruments, pipes and AC
  • Package with air inlet and outlet for ventilation
  • Exhaust integration
  • Acoustic doors and windows

CHP installations with prime mover gas or diesel engines usually operate continuously at approximately 80-90dB(A).  Additionally intermittent noise sources such as vents, pumps and compressors can provide noise output spikes. It is therefore imperative  a noise control strategy is in place for planning and development consent. Using 3D software and calling upon many years complex high performance silencer design experience, we are able to maximise the available space to fit high performance noise control and engine treatment solutions into restrictive spaces.

Noise Control Products & Solutions

Our Engineers, Project Management team and site personnel, through a collaborative approach, will provide you with solutions for the most challenging installations. We have a wealth of experience that encompasses installations carried out within the most difficult of circumstances and with little margin for error.

IAC Acoustics supply and install both in-ground and above ground bulk fuel storage and associated pipework. Our Engineers can assist with tank and piping design so that space on site is optimised. Our factory is fully equipped to cope with pipe-bending, welding, metal fabrication and assembly so that on-site fabrication is minimised.

Engine exhaust silencers from IAC reduce engine exhaust noise from all types of internal combustion engines including petrol, diesel or gas. Our exhaust silencers have many key characteristics and attributes including specific applications and are made of a diverse range of materials.

IAC Acoustics provide a complete solution to all ventilation requirements for enclosed diesel generator sets including attenuators, acoustic louvres, dampers, ducting and fans. These products serve the purpose of ensuring the correct level of ventilation is achieved, whilst minimising the effect of noise in areas adjacent to the plant room. In addition to the acoustic requirements a suitable level of filtration is provided, ensuring the air entering the combustion chamber is a clean as possible.

IAC Acoustics provide enclosures that provide a number of benefits and key features which include, vibration isolation, air inlet drive for combustions, exhaust gas removal, indoor or outdoor application integrated lighting and fire systems, modular solutions, easy access for operators and maintenance and a full installation service.

IAC Acoustics Purifiers employ catalyst elements to provide the exhaust purification solution for your diesel or CNG engines. With increasing demand for environmental regulations for the equipment used in industry, IAC Acoustics helps its customers with its unique catalytic converter based solutions that not only meet strict requirements but also keep their engines in service, reliably and cost-effectively.

Our prime mover engine noise control solutions provide you with a comprehensive turnkey solution, covering air intakes, exhaust gases, acoustic enclosures, ventilation, cooling and full M&E fit-out.

Gas turbines require a comprehensive engineered noise control solution to be balanced with significant air intake and filtration package.  Our experience with some of the worlds leading gas turbine manufacturers includes solutions for air intake and exhaust systems, acoustic enclosures, venting, balance of plant and a full turnkey project delivery.
