Gas Peaking Power Plant, Ebbw ValeDesigned, Supplied & Installed Acoustic Fencing
Acoustic Fencing – The Client
Wilson Stone Contracting Ltd are specialist contractors to the energy sector.
Perimeter Fencing Solutions were approached by Wilson Stone Contracting Ltd regarding a project in South Wales that they were let down on by another contractor. The project included the design, build and energisation of a 20MW gas peaking power plant in Ebbw Vale, South Wales. The five-month project was connected to Western Power Distribution (WPD) network in February 2021. The complete project involved full civil and electrical design, procurement of electrical equipment for the private network, construction of the gas peaking power plant, installation of switchgear, transformers and generators, and final testing of all components prior to energisation.
Perimeter Fencing Solutions at the site in Ebbw Vale to ascertain the full scope of works that was required.
Our acoustic panels all conformed and tested to BS EN 1793
The average density of the system was 26.4kg/M2 excluding the posts.
Project was completed ahead of schedule and within 12 weeks
Further to a full and comprehensive site survey and a personal consultation, it was established that the scope of works included the design, manufacture, and installation of a 3m high timber reflective acoustic fencing around the sub-station.
There was also a requirement for a large acoustic entrance gate, which was constructed as a double leaf gate for vehicles to gain entrance to the site, a wicket gate was also installed within the framework, which allowed essential pedestrian access.
Due to the high altitude of the site, we recognised immediately that the system would have to withstand extreme weather and wind conditions, therefore, we installed 250mm RSJ posts at 2m centres and excavated to a depth of 1.7m which were backfilled with mass concrete to ensure there would be no movement within the posts.
Our acoustic panels all conformed and tested to BS EN 1793 and compliant with Highway Sector Scheme 2C for the prefabrication of environmental barriers. The average density of the system was 26.4kg/M2 excluding the posts. All timber used on this project was FSC certified.
Although the main purpose of the system was to provide an acoustic barrier, it also had to be anti-climb for security reasons, therefore, we designed, manufactured, and installed hot dipped, galvanised angle brackets around the perimeter of the site to hold three rows of barbed wire. This would secure the site and deter any unwanted visitors.
