Great Yarmouth is a gas-fired power station that is one of the most efficient in Europe. At full power, Great Yarmouth generates 400MW (megawatts) of electricity: enough to meet the needs of some 400,000 people — about half the population of Norfolk.
HGC Engineering solved a structure-borne community noise problem for this combined cycle power plant. Sound intensity techniques, surface-structural intensity measurements, and vibration analysis methods were used to identify the source of the problem.
