With decades of experience carrying out sound power level testing to various standards, we provide accredited acoustic wind turbine testing to IEC 61400-11, (BS EN 61400-11 being the British implementation), including Annex F for small turbines. We can also test and carry out wind turbine noise calculations to the superseded Edition 2.1 of the 61400-11 standard for warranty verification purposes, as well as other bespoke methodologies. In 2014 Sylvia Broneske (the current UK Principal Expert on the IEC/TC 88 MT11 group for said acoustic noise measurement technique standard) and Robin Woodward (also a member of the MT11 group) formed a specialised turbine testing team. The team is constantly striving to improve our quality and services in this area.
We also carry out noise assessments and necessary testing of other plant and equipment to the relevant standards as required. The extent of the noise impact of a given noise-producing development, or on noise in commercial or industrial premises, is dependent on the noise produced by each item of installed equipment. Testing of many items of such equipment is governed by British or International Standards, although some might require an innovative approach.
