ELECTRIC SUBSTATION

USR substation

GPU Energy Projects for Red Bank, New Jersey; Freneau, New Jersey; and, Lebanon, Pennsylvania ·  Assessed the impact of proposed substations and substations upgrades.  Measured ambient sound levels, calculated equipment emissions by modeling on a grid surrounding the facility.  Evaluated the impact by comparing emissions with the ambient.

For both expansion of existing substations and planned new sites, OAA created computer models of the sound contributed by the equipment to surrounding properties.  Where the analysis revealed exceedances of relevant noise codes, OAA specified appropriate mitigation.
