Acoustic louvre system for Cornwall Energy Centre

Acoustic louvre system for Cornwall Energy Centre

Caice has provided a suitable “A” Class acoustic louvre system that both met the extreme weathering as well as the acoustic requirements for The Cornwall Energy Recovery Centre. Both “A” Class Acoustic louvres & weather louvres plus dampers and actuators were supplied and installed on this project to provide natural ventilation to the tipping and turbine halls.

High winds due to the exposure to the north coast of Cornwall made installation difficult even during the spring and early summer. With only being able to use a special scissor platform (working 50m above the ground), from the outside and ab-sailors within the building installation was slow, but safe.

Caice undertook the design of a new acoustic louvre to make sure the system met the class “A” weathering requirement’s as set out in EN 13030:2001. The beauty of the Class “A” acoustic louvre on this particular project was that only one product needed to be installed as opposed to a conventional weather louvre with an attenuator positioned behind.

A spokesman for the energy centre said "A project that due to it’s location and extreme weather made for a difficult installation, but handled professionally and competently bearing in mind the top louvres were over 50m above the ground. Completed successfully working with Caice and Vinci in cooperation”
