Noise on offshore installations training.


This course gives you a structured introduction to the generation, the propagation and the control of noise, with emphasis on the conditions prevailing on offshore installations. It includes hands-on exercises in our laboratory.

You will

  • understand the fundamental terminology, methods and parameters of noise topics

  • gain knowledge about good practice of offshore noise control

  • be able to understand and interpret legislation

  • use creative thinking for practical solutions

  • have an overview of how to manage noise on new build and existing installations

Course content

  • Basic acoustics (sound pressure, sound power, the dB scale, noise exposure, calculation exercises)

  • Hearing damage/hearing protection, vibration exposure

  • Noise measurements (basic sound pressure measurements, signal analysis)

  • In the lab (measurements, equipment, sound pressure exercise)

  • Noise sources

  • Sound radiation and propagation (airborne, structure borne, reduction, radiation, outdoor propagation)

  • Noise management
