Noise and Vibration

Noise and vibration issues are a worldwide problem. However, the way the problem is dealt with differs immensely from country to country and is very much dependent on culture, economy and politics. WKC offers comprehensive noise and vibration consultancy services across a wide range of industries and sectors, conforming to industry standards, national legislation and international best practice.

Our team has extensive experience in noise and vibration assessments for major facilities and projects around the World and have carried out numerous measurement and modelling studies. These studies range from baseline and verification noise surveys to preliminary and detailed noise modelling assessments and induced fatigue failure in process pipework. With our professional associations, past experience, and utilising our in-house assessment tools, WKC offer an efficient and robust solution to meet our client’s needs.

Our team are members of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and Energy Institute, with published articles and advocates of Acoustic and Noise Consultants (ANC). We are very familiar with working to national standards and guidance on a local level, in the UK or in other geographies governed by the requirements of the local regulators such as, NCEC or Saudi Aramco in KSA, the EAD or ADNOC in the UAE, and MoECC and Qatar Energy in Qatar. We have worked on global mega and giga projects including those associated with NEOM, the Red Sea Development, Ras Laffan City, Ruwais and Jubail Industrial City.
