One of the largest Intake Chambers & Sound Attenuators built for the North Sea!

Everyone is speculating that this may well be the biggest Intake Chamber built for the North Sea ! With the pictures seen above you can really start to appreciate its true size. This project took a collaborative effort from the Acoustics team and worked side by side with our clients from the design phase to delivery. Like all projects delivered, communication and flexibility was our key for success. Soon this intake chamber and our sound attenuator (below) will be installed on a platform in the North Sea with a possibility of being a record breaker.

  • Dimensions: 6.5m wide x 6.5m depth x 2.5m high
  • High Effective water separation by use of Weather Louvers
  • Water drainage inclusive water traps (back draft valves)
  • 60 Filter elements
  • "Built-in" solution for gas detectors
  • Structural & Blast load calculations

The combination of this Sound Attenuator with the Intake Chamber (above) will be installed together. Both will help distribute airflow throughout the platform along with reducing noise in order to comply with HSE requirements and noise control regulations in the North Sea.

  • Dimensions: 6.6m wide x 2.8 high x 2.0m long
  • Sound reduction 28 dB(A)
  • Airflow: 273,200 m3/h
